hover and display problem



I have used a template from Paul O'Brady over at Sitepoint to set up a website and I am trying to use some of his code to allow content to display when the mouse is hovered over a list entry. This works quite well here: http://www.merelitfest.co.uk/2003/2003res.html (at least it does in my current editions of FF and IE7) allowing the reader to scroll down through the poem when the cursor is placed on the poem's title. (1st, 2nd & 3rd place in the open competition).
But here http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/simonriv...DS/history.html it doesn't work so well. (that is a work in progess)

I know I have used inline elements when I should have used block in some places, but have countered that with the style, and the second site shows that I have used both with the same effect.

Whichever, it's not very good and I'm looking at doing it differently (without linking to a new page).

I think I'm up against a brick wall with HTML and CSS and my js isn't up to it. Does anyone have any ideas?

The history.html link doesn't work - page not found.

Incidentally, it would be a VERY good idea on the poetry pages to give visitors some sort of a strong hint that on mouseover more content is displayed. At present it will all happen by accident and confuse them.

Sorry, try this:
http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/simonriverdale/MADS/history.html

I know about the mystery meat navigation, until I'd got it working properly I didn't want to advertise it.

As you've probably noticed I've been banned from T, I can't even view the forum, so if anyone comes up with anything can you let me know?

Thanks

Simon.
