Well, I don't know what 'doesn't work' means -- the difference between
these is that in the latter case, the 'this' inside this.mouseover is
different, so you might be getting an error thrown because some property
used inside this.mouseover doesn't exist...

Check your error console? Get Firebug, and put a console.log() inside
this.mouseover to see if it's working?
