Effects make title tooltips slow on IE

Hello there,

I am having a problem with the following code only on IE:

function glowSeats(){
		$(this).effect("highlight", {}, 100);


I have table cells containing <a> tags with titles such as

<a title="Testing..">tooltip test</a>

and other table cells with class names 'msca' that need to glow on regular interval as shown in the JS above

Now firefox handles this very smoothly and with no delay at all

Hovering the <a> with titles displays the tooltip as normally like this :

<td><a title="example1">X</a></td>
<td><a title="example2">Y</a></td>
<td><a title="example3">Z</a></td>
<td><a title="example4">S</a></td>
<td class="msca">Error</td>
<td>No error</td>
<td class="msca">Error</td>
<td>No error</td>

But in IE, the tooltips don't even show up sometimes, and when they do, they show up reaaally slow and disappear reaaaaly slow

So after some trial and error with figuring out which code was doing this, i found out it was that function above, which needs to run at regular intervals...

I hope you can fix this because it is really important in the project i am working on

I should note that the elements with the class "msca" are variable in my project, but when i noticed the bug, they were 17

So thats 17 effects running at the same time on that page

I know that could be a lot to handle, but since FF is handling it pretty well, i am wondering if its because of jQuery that IE isn't

Thanks in advance for the help
