no, what happens is that when the popup opens and any part of it obscures
the link, the cursor will then be positioned over the popup, thus no longer
over the link, thus firing the onmouseout, which closes the popup...

... but then the cursor is back over the link, firing the onmouseover...

... and you get an infinite loop, opening the closing the popup

kevin, maybe you should make it an onclick instead

and don't forget to change the link, as per jeff's article
