    Keep a:hover style when user mouses over sub-nav

    Hi,

    When the user mouses over Link One, a sub-nav div opens. While that div is open, I want Link One's a:hover style to persist, even though the user isn't technically mousing over it. I've tried a few different ways to make this happen with limited success. Can anyone help? My code is below.

    Thanks!
