Hi,

Change it to

onMouseDown=\"Event()\"

And you can test this in javascript easily

<script>
  function Event(){
    alert("Weee!");
  }
  var ln;
  var test='tum te tum te tum';
  ln = "<table border='0' onMouseDown=\"Event()\">";
  ln+= "<tr><td>"+ test +"</td></tr>";
  document.write(ln);
</script>

The difference is that onMouseDown defines a handler for the entire table, if you use onclick you have to write it for each element that you need to be clickable ... afaik

In your echo string you can use single quotes for your HTML attributes which makes it look neater but you have to use \" for the function related things, like my example above, its not entirely nessecery to use the \n either.

another point to remember:
javascript is case sensitive. onClick can't be substituted for ONCLICK.
try that and see if your code works ;)
