onClick event for a <tr> table element in Firefox/Mozilla .... not working. IE does.

As far as i know, firefox/mozilla (in contrary to IE) does not support onClick event on the <tr> table element, so the only way to simulate it is that each row of table acts as one <div>, which reacts to onClick...  It's fairly complicated to implement, is there any better solution to this?

Greetings,
Marko

This works for me in Mozilla1.7.2:

<html>
<body>
<table>
<tr onClick="alert('Hello')"><td>Click me</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function swapBG(obj)
{
var colour;
colour=(obj.style.background==obj.id) ? "green" : obj.id;
obj.style.background=colour;
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<table cellspacing="1" border="1">
<tr style="background:red;" id="red" onclick="swapBG(this);">
<td width="200" height="20"></td><td width="200"></td><td width="200"></td>
</tr>
<tr style="background:orange;" id="orange" onclick="swapBG(this)">
<td width="200" height="20"></td><td width="200"></td><td width="200"></td>
</tr>
<tr style="background:yellow;" id="yellow" onclick="swapBG(this)">
<td width="200" height="20"></td><td width="200"></td><td width="200"></td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>


...... colour=(obj.style.background==obj.id) ? "green" : obj.id;     this line is not working in Firefox, that was my problem.
