javascript for onmouseover, onmouseout for a <A>

Hi!

Here's the code I have:

-->
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">  
    function HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOver(obj, strobj)
    {
        var clr = "#cc9900";
        var td = "none";
        var bc = "#F0F0F0";
        var str = "<a id=\"" + strobj + "\" style='background-color:" + bc + "; color:" + clr + "; text-decoration:" + td + ";' onmouseover=\"javascript:HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOver(" + strobj + ",'" + strobj + "');\" onmouseout=\"javascript:HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOut(" + strobj + ",'" + strobj + "');\" href='Default.aspx'>Admin</a>";
        obj.outerHTML = str;
    }
    function HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOut(obj, strobj)
    {
        var clr = "#608888";
        var td = "underline";
        var bc = "white";
        var str = "<a id=\"" + strobj + "\" style='background-color:" + bc + "; color:" + clr + "; text-decoration:" + td + ";' onmouseover=\"javascript:HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOver(" + strobj + ",'" + strobj + "');\" onmouseout=\"javascript:HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOut(" + strobj + ",'" + strobj + "');\" href='Default.aspx'>Admin</a>";
        obj.outerHTML = str;
        alert(obj.outerHTML);
    }    
    </script>
</head>
<body>
<a id='span6' style="color: #608888" onmouseover="javascript:HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOver(span6,'span6');" onmouseout="javascript:HyperlinkStyle1OnMouseOut(span6,'span6');" href="Default.aspx">Admin</a></p>
</body>
</html>
-->

When the mouse is over the hyperlink, the style changes. However, when the mouse moves out, the style doesnt revert back. the Alert() in the OnMouseOut() code never gets called. Can someone help me in figuring out what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
Mustansir

 You've made it too hard.  Try something easier, like:
----------------------------------------------------------------
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.normal {
    color            : #608888;
      background-color : white;
    text-decoration  : none;
}
.special {
    color            : #F0F0F0;
      background-color : white;
    text-decoration  : underline;
}
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">  
    function Over( obj )
    {
      obj.className = 'special';
    }
    function Out( obj )
    {
      obj.className = 'normal';
      alert( 'out()' );
    }    
    </script>
</head>
<body>
<a id='span6' class='normal' onmouseover='Over(this);' onmouseout='Out(this);' href='Default.aspx'>Admin</a>
</body>
</html>
