I am trying to add squiggley brackets to each side of my main navigation links when the mouse passes over each. I'm stealing the idea from complementaryduo.com, but when I disected their css, I found a background image was being used, and I rather wanted to avoid that.

is there some easy javascript that will allow me to do this without needing a background image? I need to be able to work with it in conjunction with the css, such that my hover text color still applies to the brackets that will appear. (each navigation link is one word long)(if a color is needed, just use #338a1b).

I'm really this bad with js, so some assitance would be much appreciated
