jquery href hover

Contrary to what you can find on the web, when trying to set the window.status when hovering over a link, you need to return false at the end of the hover function, otherwise the standard mouseover event is going to kick in overwrite your window.status

The following jQuery works

$('a').hover(function(){window.status=this.title?this.title:'';return false;},function(){window.status='';return false;})

If you return true, the window status is going to display the URL instead, which is the standard.
