    my guess is they use the text-shadow property with the :hover attribute. I’d imagine code along the lines of

    a.glow:hover {
    text-shadow: 0 0 4px #8888FF;

    would work, assuming your anchors had a class of “glow”.

    It looks like a jquery animation though because the glow slowly grows.

    alternatively, they could be using CSS3 transitions. It might not work as widely, but it could be a nice bit of progressive enhancement.
