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
M

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