    Dynamically colouring table cells

    I have a table rendered from an external source in this format:

    <table>
    <tr class="ms-vb">
    <td>October 2009</td>
    <td>/\</td>
    <td>/\</td>
    <td>##</td>
    <td>##</td>
    <td>/\</td>
    etc...
    </tr>
    </table>

    I want to colour the cells depending on the content. e.g ## = red, /\ = green, etc... I canít make any changes to the rendered html so it has to be done dynamically using JavaScript.

    Does anyone know how to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I could do this easily if there was an id created dynamically but without that Iím not sure how to colour the cells individually.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Code:
    function colorcells(){
        var T= document.getElementsByTagName('table')[0];
        var nodes= T.getElementsByTagName('td'), L= nodes.length, tem, txt, css;
        while(L){
            tem= nodes[--L];
            txt= tem.textContent || tem.innerText || '';
            switch(txt){
                case '##': css= 'red';
                break;
                case '/\':css='green';
                break;
                default: css= '';
            }
            if(css) tem.style.backgroundColor= css;
        }
    }
