  • jQuery hoverImage plugin

    At the project I’m currently reviewing they’ve used a lot of hover effects for images and links containing images. You can use CSS’s :hover for it, but that means you’ll have to add a new CSS line for each hover image and that it doesn’t work in IE6 for images. So they’ve decided to use a different approach. On all these images that needed a swap effect, they’ve added some JavaScript in the “onmouseover” and “onmouseout” and that’s something I wasn’t pleased with cause it was all cluttering the html, it asked for typo’s and they were registering handlers on the wrong events(they should have used "onmouseenter" and "onmouseleave"). And then I noticed they have jQuery registered on that same page.
