IE7 onmouseout background block remains

I use
<!--[if lte IE 7]>
	<script type="text/javascript">
	sfHover=function(){var sfEls=document.getElementById("navigation").getElementsByTagName("LI");for(var i=0;i<sfEls.length;i++){sfEls[i].onmouseover=function(){this.className+=" sfhover";}
	sfEls[i].onmouseout=function(){this.className=this.className.replace(new RegExp(" sfhover\\b"),"");}}}
	if (window.attachEvent)window.attachEvent("onload",sfHover);
	</script>
	<![endif]-->

Open in new window

at http://tinyurl.com/2ujswr3 to make sure the white block is hidden onmouseout. But somehow it does not seem to run in IE7 or less. As soon as I have hovered on a menu item the white background appears and does not leave. Can someone tell me why?

PS Loading it for IE6 only now, but the issue of the script not working remains the same

Try using jquery to do this, you won't have to worry about browser compatabily then

@ Darren-w-: So why is the current JScript not running? I mean if I cannot get the current one to work how would I get http://api.jquery.com/hover/ to work?

Removed it for now as there was not solution I could use just yet. IE7 works OK without it, but IE6 does not. So the issue has not been resolved yet. It just moved to IE6. Could you help me using jQuery there to make hover function?

Hi,

Take a look a Stu Nicholls website below, he does a very simple example of a on hover menu using just css and xhtml, this may be a simpler approach and should be compatible with all browsers :

Please get back to should you need further pointers.
