Hi Experts

I am trying to change colour on a menu under <UL> <LI> as the mouse moves over and back to normal when it moves out, I can get it working when it moves over but no luck when it moves out, could you please help, PS i dont want to use ID's and I don't want to place it in a table...that just makes it too easy lol...Cheers

Here is my function

function li(ElementNumber,backcolor,textcolor)

       {

         document.getElementsByTagName("li")[ElementNumber].style.backgroundColor = backcolor;
         document.getElementsByTagName("li")[ElementNumber].style.color = textcolor;
         
       }

<DIV id="ul">
<ul>
  <li onmouseover="li(0,'white','gray')";onmouseout="li(0,'gray','white')">Armani</li>
  <li onmouseover="li(1,'white','gray')";onmouseout="li(1,'gray','white')">Oakley</li>
  <li onmouseover="li(2,'white','gray')";onmouseout="li(2,'gray','white')">Versace</li>
</ul>
</div>

Hi

Have it like this:

  <li onmouseover="li(0,'white','gray');" onmouseout="li(0,'gray','white')">Armani</li>
  <li onmouseover="li(1,'white','gray');" onmouseout="li(1,'gray','white')">Oakley</li>
  <li onmouseover="li(2,'white','gray');" onmouseout="li(2,'gray','white')">Versace</li>
