1) Script Title:
Slashdot Menu

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/slashdot.htm

3) Describe problem:
Firstly, I have to say really like the script.

My question is how to make the menu headers have some sort of mouseover behaviour in IE6. Some people apparently do not realise it is a menu, so I'd like to change colour or cursor on hover.

In Ie7 and Mozilla 2 I have used :hover in the css like so:

.sdmenu .titlehidden:hover {
background: #FFF url(images/title_red.gif) repeat-x;
cursor: hand;}

Of course, in IE6 only anchors can have the hover class.

I've looked at workarounds like Suckerfish (http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/hover/), but can't get it to work.

So, is it possible in the menu.js to simply have the cursor to change to a hand when hovering over the menu header?

Thanks for any ideas anyone.
