NS support is a must for this as well. Sorry I did not specify that. I know that there are some querks, but if you can get it as close as you can, I am leniant.

The below code changes the color of a cell on mouseover and back on mouseout.

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT>
var highColor = 'lime'
function tdMouseOver (evt) {
   this.cell.bgColor = highColor;
}
function tdMouseOut (evt) {
   this.cell.bgColor = document.bgColor;
}
function init () {
  initTableEventHandler ('table1', 3, 3, 'mouseover', tdMouseOver);
  initTableEventHandler ('table1', 3, 3, 'mouseout', tdMouseOut);
}
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY ONLOAD="init();">
<TABLE BORDER="1">
<TR>
<TD ID="table1Cell0_0" CLASS="cell"
    ONMOUSEOVER="this.bgColor = highColor;"
    ONMOUSEOUT="this.bgColor = document.bgColor;"

This will do just fine. I am using a jsp page to implement something that will require clicking on table cells and changing colors. I will be hooking into some data source, to provide colors to change to. Thanks a lot for your help. I 've aded a few for your troubles. Thanks
