hello,
i have a navigation using the tag UL and i want the item in the list to change class on mouse over and go back to the original class on mouseout, the problem is when i'm using IE and the mouse is over an inline element like A or IMG tags  inside the LI then the browser calls to mouseout event.
in the Code section u can see the HTML and the JS code.(using Prototype Framework)
<ul id="navigation-right" class="clearfix">
<li class="not-selected"><img id="Img1"  src="../images/new_design/general/Icon_Add.gif" alt="poll" /><a href="PollAdd.aspx" class="Blue" onclick="return loginState();">add poll</a></li>
<li class="not-selected"><img id="Img3"  src="../images/new_design/navigation_icons/Icon_Survey.gif" alt="poll" /><asp:HyperLink ID="hylMyArticles" runat="Server" CssClass="Blue" onclick="return loginState();">view pollsÙ</asp:HyperLink></li>
</ul>

        var navigationHandler = {
            addMouseEvents : function(ul){
                var arrLi = $(ul).childElements();
                for(var i=0;i<arrLi.length;i++){
                    navigationHandler.addEvents(arrLi[i],'mouseover','selected');
                    navigationHandler.addEvents(arrLi[i],'mouseout','not-selected');
                }
            },addEvents : function(obj,eventType,cssClass){
                Element.observe(obj,eventType,function(){
                    var elm = navigationHandler.getElement.apply(this);
                    elm.className = cssClass;
                });
            },getElement : function(){
                var elm = null;
                if(document.all){
                    var e = window.event;
                    elm = e.srcElement;
                    if(e.type.toLowerCase() == 'mouseout'){
                        if(((e.toElement.tagName.toLowerCase() == 'img') || (e.toElement.tagName.toLowerCase() == 'a')) && (e.fromElement.tagName != 'li' )){
                            return false;
                        }
                    }
                }else {elm = this}
                return elm ;
            }
        }

The trick is to use:
relatedTarget, fromElement, toElement
to see if element that raises the event is a child of the element who already has risen the event.
