I'm currently working on this ( http://www.sulcalibur.com/temp/index.html ) design for a personal blog and I'm obviously going wrong somewhere. It's the first time I've used jquery and I've noticed problems in Opera with the menu hovers. Also they seem to be quite 'laggy'.

Is there anyway to get a round this?

Also, anyone that had used jquery, if you have any tips that would be great.

Another thought.............

I'm doing this design for Wordpress, and to be honest I'm not that happy with the hover over states as it means I would have to code in the menu rather than rely on Wordpress doing it. If anyone knows any plugin that could do something like this, that would be great. Looking at it, all you would need is a plugin that inserts the javascript, then in the menu adds the "title" atribute and the <em>.
