The onmouseout event occurs when the mouse pointer is moved out of an element, or out of one of its children.
Tip: This event is often used together with the onmouseover event, which occurs when the pointer is moved onto an element, or onto one of its children.
Note: The addEventListener() method is not supported in Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions.
