Rollovers

Somewhere in chapter 8, Victor Guadioso, the author of the Blend 2 book that I’m going through, talks about MouseEnter and MouseLeave events and says:

“In Flash and HTML, this is commonly known as Rollover and RollOut states”

Sorry to correct the author, but HTML coders – unless you’re talking about the mid-90s, stopped using Rollovers in favor of CSS hovers. Just the mention of Rollovers makes me cringe inside in the way that the movie Hollow man makes me cringe when the guy is running and you can see his body moving, fully in tact save for his skin which is invisible. (Note: That’s about one of the only things where I become squeamish.)
