Hi! :)

You can do that only if there is a close structural relationship between the two elements. I.e. the hidden element must be contained in the hovered element. Read link for all practical purposes since IEWin only supports :hover on links.

See Eric Meyers old demo here:
Also read this about the IE quirks. Got me tearing my hair out once, this one. :D

If you want to turn arbitrary items all over the page on and off, you're better off with JavaScript.
