Change text colour when mouseover an image?

Hi

I have an image that, when the user moves over it, I'd like a peice of text elsewhere on the page to change colour ...

This is my code so far:

    <tr>
        <td>
            <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
                <tr>
                    <td>
                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
                            <tr>
                                <td width="60"></td>
                                <td><a href="#" onMouseOver="ImageName1.src='images/Button_1_ROL.jpg'" onMouseOut="ImageName1.src='images/Button_1_NOR.jpg'"><img src="images/Button_1_NOR.jpg" name=ImageName1 border="0"></a></td>
                                <td width="5"></td>
                                <td><a href="#" onMouseOver="ImageName2.src='images/Button_2_ROL.jpg'" onMouseOut="ImageName2.src='images/Button_2_NOR.jpg'"><img src="images/Button_2_NOR.jpg" name=ImageName2 border="0"></a></td>
                                <td width="5"></td>
                                <td><a href="#" onMouseOver="ImageName3.src='images/Button_3_ROL.jpg'" onMouseOut="ImageName3.src='images/Button_3_NOR.jpg'"><img src="images/Button_3_NOR.jpg" name=ImageName3 border="0"></a></td>
                                <td width="5"></td>
                                <td><a href="#" onMouseOver="ImageNamei.src='images/Button_i_ROL.jpg'" onMouseOut="ImageNamei.src='images/Button_i_NOR.jpg'"><img src="images/Button_i_NOR.jpg" name=ImageNamei border="0"></a></td>
                            </tr>
                        </table>
                    </td>
                    <td width="25"></td>
                    <td valign="top" class="index">
                        hello, thank you for visiting lionfish design, your visit is<br>
                        important to us. please choose from the following options: <br>
                        for <font color="#5A717F">web design</font> please press 1, for <font color="#5A717F">print design</font> please<br>
                        press 2, for <font color="#5A717F">logo design</font> please press 3, for <font color="#5A717F">copywrting</font><br>
                        please press 4, for <font color="#5A717F">press releases</font> please press 5, for<br>
                        <font color="#5A717F">website hosting</font> please press 6, for all other services<br>
                        please press 0. please make selection now.<br>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            </table>
        </td>
    </tr>

So, when the user moves over the first image, I'd like to light the words 'web design' up in orange ... how can I do this?

Thanks

Yours did work, but my editor told me that Span doesn't really support the color attribute? But thank you for replying so quickly.

Yes my fault.
It should have been like this

<span id="spn1" style="color:#5A717F">
