I confirm that with Firefox 5.0 and IE 9 on Windows Vista, I have a
solid conflict with column highlighting. Everytime I hover over the
column's header, vertical highlighting does not happen. Then I hover out
and highlighting happens (it looks like the column was marked).

Worse: the tip cannot be read in IE 9 (it's very narrow).
