alternate row color

I would like to know if there s a script that would alternate the color of rows on a table using javascript.

i found a solution on EE that uses this function:
<script language="javascript">
var color1="#AAAAAA";
var color2="#555555";
var headercolor="#0000CC";
// get table rows
rows=document.getElementById("table0").rows;
// set first row color
rows[0].setAttribute("bgcolor",headercolor);
// loop through remaining rows
for (i=1;i<rows.length;i++){
     // if modulus=0, set color1, else modulus=1, set color2
     if (i%2==0)
          rows[i].setAttribute("bgcolor",color1);
     else
          rows[i].setAttribute("bgcolor",color2);
}
</script>

and it is placed right after the </html> closing tag. the problem is that it only works on Firefox not on IE.
I was wondering if someone could help me tweak the function so it works on both browsers, or if
another function could be shared taht does the same.

i don't want to use CSS because i have several rows and they keep increasing.

for your help thank you in advance.

regards,

itortu.

Either try the uppercase Color attribute:
  rows[i].setAttribute("bgColor",color1);

Or use the style attribute:
  rows[i].style.backgoundColor = color1;

Or use CSS classes.
Like this:
  rows[i].className = "rowSytle1";

i forgot to mention that i also found other scripts that use body onload but i am already using another script on body onload and i don't know how to mix the two of them.

this is my body tag:

<body leftmargin="1" marginheight="0" marginwidth="1" topmargin="0" onLoad='if (domok) initTable("table0")'>

Oh, and putting the script outside of html is not good. Put it simply after </table> that you want to access.

changing it to
rows[i].setAttribute("bgColor",color1);

fixed it.
