I have the following codes, basically the alert should only fire if the user moves the cursor outside of the main box, it should never fire inside even when switching hover between div's inside the main box. That's why I tried :not(#main *), but that doesn't seem to work.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
	<head>
		<title>Test Page</title>
		<style>
			#body-content
			{
				margin:50px 0px; 
				padding: 0px;
				text-align: center;
			}
			
			#main {
				width:800px;
				height: 500px;
				margin:0px auto;
				text-align:left;
				padding:15px;
				border:1px dashed #333;
				background-color:#eee;
			}
			
			#navbar {
				background-color: #cc0000;
				margin-bottom: 250px;
			}
		</style>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>
		<script>
			$(document).ready(function(){		
				$("*:not(#main *)").mouseover(function(){
					alert("mouse out");
				}, function() {});
			});
		</script>
	</head>
 
	<body id="body-content">
		<div id="main">	
			<div id="navbar">
				Heres the navigation bar menu....
			</div>
			<div id="box">
				Heres some content in the box....
			</div>
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

Use mouseleave
http://docs.jquery.com/Events/mouseleave
or hover( I think that also works )

Wow, didn't know that existed. Mouseleave is exactly what I was looking for, thanks!
