mouseovers work fine in FF, c, o & s, but not in ie8.

Why?

I've been dealing with this most of the day and I just discovered that the comment I put at the very top of my script was the problem.

Why did this comment ruin my script on ie8????:

Because it comes before the doctype. IE relies on html pages starting with a correct doctype (and not with an empty line followed by a comment).
