onMouseover scrollbar effect

Description: Quite a catchy script that applies a "rollover" effect to your webpage's scrollbar!

Demo: Move your mouse over the main document scrollbar in IE5.5...

Directions: Developer's View

Just add the following into the <BODY> section of your page:

Select All

inside the script, and substitute "neo" with 1 of 4 other possible values- "blue", "orange", "red", and "green"- to experience them.
