Mouseover error in mozilla

I have a piece of javascript that performs a style change on mouseover and a function onclick.
It works perfectly in IE (5+) yet i get this error in mozilla: "Error: m_over is not defined",
"Error: go is not defined" and "Error: m_out is not defined".
These are the functions:

function m_over(src) {
 src.style.textDecoration = 'underline';
 src.style.cursor = 'hand';
}
function go(what) {
 alert(what+"\n\nnormally you can do something here");
}

called using this html code:
<td id="htl" onclick="go('home');" onmouseover="m_over(this);" onmouseout="m_out(this);">

It works perfectly in IE, yet it simply does nothing in mozilla. I have not tested this in netscape.

I have to say it works for me in Moz, so please give us a link to your page or show a stripped version of code.
Also, it's cursor='pointer', NOT cursor='hand'

<html>
<head>

<script>
function m_over(src) {
 src.style.textDecoration = 'underline';
 src.style.cursor = 'pointer';
}
function m_out(src) {
  src.style.textDecoration='none';
  src.style.cursor='default';
}
function go(what) {
 alert(what+"\n\nnormally you can do something here");
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<span id="htl" onclick="go('home');" onmouseover="m_over(this);" onmouseout="m_out(this)">hello there</span>
</body>
</html>

Where is your m_out function?

everything works except the m_out function.i assume it reverts m_over back to the original state

also you need to add this

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
//Your scripts here

</script>
</head>
<body>
<!-- Content Here -->
</body>
</html>

Lastly here the whole page fixed (not valid HTML)

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function m_over(src) {
 src.style.textDecoration = 'underline';
 src.style.cursor = 'pointer';
}
function m_out(src) {
 src.style.textDecoration = 'none';
}
function go(what) {
 alert(what+"\n\nnormally you can do something here");
}
// -->
</script>

</head>
<body>

Brilliant, thanks for clearing that all up for me, now it all runs perfectly in Mozilla. (had to accept the higher up answer as it was the main fix)
