And I would like to select the span tag when the parent anchor is hovered over.
This is the code I currently have, but it only works in certain versions of firefox and I would like it to work in all of the major browers. In the other browsers it will either select all of the anchor tags at the some time, or it will select none of them. I am pretty sure that the problem lies with the :hover selector in jquery.
Sorry it took a while to get back. I've been away from the computer for a while. If you still need a solution try this out...
This was tested in IE8, FF3, & Safari. Remember, that once you are inside the callback function for that selector, you don't need to reselect it again. Using "this" refers to the item that you have selected that is part of that selector.
