    Do you use javascript only for hover? This is pure CSS
    HTML Code:
    <html>
    	<head>
    		<title>Wesley Hutchison</title>
    		<style>
    			table{
    				margin-left:25%;
    				margin-right:25%;
    				margin-top:50px;
    			}
    			.greyback_text{
    				color:white;
    			}
    			a{
    				text-decoration:none;
    				color:brown;
    			}
    			a:hover{
    				color:lime;
    			}
    		</style>
    	</head>
    	<body bgcolor="black">
    		<table border="1" bgcolor="green">
    			<tr>
    				<td colspan="2">
    					<h1><p align="center">Wesley Hutchison</p></h1>
    				</td>
    			</tr>
    			<tr>
    				<td>
    					<h2><p align="center"><i>Welcome to my site!</i></p></h2>
    					<p align="center"><i><b>Hi. I'm Wes,</b></i> and I have a variety of interests. I like <u>music</u>, and I play the <u>piano</u>, <br />
    					<u>tenor sax</u>, and <u>ukulele</u>. I want to be a <u>professor</u> in <u>genetics</u> at some sort of college when <br />
    					I am older. I also take interest in <u>physics</u> and <u>cosmology</u>, but am not entirely dedicated to it. <br />
    					If you want to learn more about me then just see the <i>About Me</i> page. <br />
    					</p>
    				</td>
    				<td bgcolor="grey">
    					<h3><p align="left" class="greyback_text">Navigation</p></h3>
    					<ul align="left">
    						<li><a href="index.html"><p>Home</p></a></li>
    						<li><a href="about.html"><p>About Me</p></a></li>
    						<li><a href="music.html"><p>Music</p></a></li>

    you should use a:hover in css. if you insist on javascript...

    HTML Code:
    <html>
    	<head>
    		<title>Wesley Hutchison</title>
    		<style type="text/css">
    			table{
    				margin-left:25%;
    				margin-right:25%;
    				margin-top:50px;
    			}
    			.greyback_text{
    				color:white;
    			}
    			a{
    				text-decoration:none;
    			}
    		</style>
        
    		<script type="text/javascript">
    			function over(a_num) {
    				  a_num.style.color = "#lime";
          }
          function out(a_num) {
    					a_num.style.color = "#brown";
    				}		
    		</script>
        
    	</head>
    	<body bgcolor="black">
    		<table border="1" bgcolor="green">
    			<tr>
