I am trying to change the background of the parent cell of a hyperlink.  What I currently have is <a href="test.html" onmouseover="this.parentNode.style.background-image='url(images/DkBlueSlantedTAB.gif)';"  But the problem is that this returns a syntax error.  Any ideas?

That works thanks.  It's amazing what a simple hyphen can do.

You can see it as a rule: every hyphen in CSS changes in Script the following character to uppercase and disappears.
