Is it possible to assign a whole table a hover state so all cells are affected?

Is it possible to assign a whole table with individual columns and cells a hover state so that all cells can be affected by a rollover change in background color?

Hover with a table won't work with IE. However, you can use some simple Javascript to achieve the same effect. Here's an example:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.color1 {background:red;}
.color2 {background:white;}
-->
</style>

</head>
<body>
<table id="tbl" summary="" border="1" onmouseover="javascript:this.className='color1';" onmouseout="javascript:this.className='color2';">
<tr>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
  <td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
