Philippe pointed out that EM box sizing can prevent these problems,
ans I think he's right, there ought be no problem converting the px
box widths to EMs, altho this will allow the old IE box model to
become a problem, unless EM based borders work okay? However, minimal
borders only slightly disarrange the boxes in IE5.5, so that's not
a big issue.
I've also just had the idea of making the flyout ul's invisible
and keeping the borders and coloring entirely on the LI's. This
would allow the ul to be padded so that the flyout is bigger than
it appears. This would make the system more forgiving for those with
shaky mouse hands. Not as good as the DOM nav persistence delay, but
better than nothing.
Also, it should be possible to have the parent li aquire a bottom
padding (in conjunction with borders/background entirely on the
nested link) which would push down the remainder of that nav level,
making extra space below the hovered parent that the user could
safely stray into while heading diagonally toward the flyout.
