Help with mouseover effects

I'm trying to do a mouseover effect over tables.. it works if you place your mouse over the 4 images on top(broken images) and then place your mouse over the content tables.. you'll see the mouse over effect... BUT if you first load the page up and go straight to the content table cells.. it doesn't have any mouse over effects.. only after when you place your mouse over the four broken images - only then the mouseover effect will work.. i'm asking if you could fix this code for me somehow to make it work.. ideally i'd like it to be cleaned if possible.. thanks!

Here's the code:


<html>
<head>

<style tyle="text/css">
body {margin:0; background-image:url("/img/background.jpg"); background-attachment:fixed; }
table {font-family: Verdana; font-size: 11px; color: #FFFFFF;}
.BodyBorder {border-left: 1px solid #DDDDDD; border-right: 1px solid #DDDDDD;}
.news
        {
            visibility: visible;
                  position: absolute;
        }
.xposure
        {
            visibility: hidden;
            position: absolute;
        }
.video
        {
            visibility: hidden;
            position: absolute;
        }
.spotlight
        {
            visibility: hidden;
            position: absolute;
        }
.button {cursor: hand;}
.HotSpot {padding: 7px;}
.HotSpotOver {padding:7px; background:#CCCCCC; color:#333333; border:1px solid #FFFFFF;}
.FollowUp {padding: 7px; color: #333333; border-bottom: 1px solid #999999}
.FollowUpOver {padding: 7px; background:#666666; color:#FFFFFF; border: 1px solid #FFFFFF;}
.More {padding-left: 7px;}
.MoreOver {padding-left: 7px; background: #FF8800;}
.Hand {cursor: hand;}
</style>

        <script type="text/javascript"><!--

        function showLayer(layerName)
        {
            if (document.getElementById) // Netscape 6 and IE 5+
            {
                var targetElement = document.getElementById(layerName);
                targetElement.style.visibility = 'visible';
            }
        }


        function hideLayer(layerName, layerName2, layerName3)
        {
            if (document.getElementById)
            {
                var targetElement = document.getElementById(layerName);
                var targetElement2 = document.getElementById(layerName2);
                var targetElement3 = document.getElementById(layerName3);
                targetElement.style.visibility = 'hidden';
                targetElement2.style.visibility = 'hidden';
                targetElement3.style.visibility = 'hidden';
            }
        }
