Strange hover caption issue

I’m working on an interactive cd and i am having some issues implementing a hover caption over an infinite menu.

Before the hover caption, the buttons on the menu would load html in another frame. Once i made a simple hover caption for the mildly computer-retarded users who will be using it, the links do not work anymore. I made sure that the “+” is outside of the text box, it’s driving me nuts!:fight:

Anybody with any ideas on what i can do to fix this please let me know, I appreciate your help in advance.
