    Browser Indep. Function

    Hello All! Thank you in advance for helping me...

    I am trying to write a script that changes the background color in a central table. Color changes depend on which link is MouseOvered and the color stays in the table even after the the MouseOver unless a different MouseOver event happens. My problem is that my code seems to only work in Safari and no other browser. How can I change or rewrite my code to work in IE, Netscape, Mozzila, Safari, etc...

    My code:

    ....would that do anything different than putting this in every link with a different color:

    onmouseover="document.getElementById('tableID').style.backgroun dColor='blue'"
