>>outerText property works in Internet Explorer
Because it is an IE property only. It is NOT a "standard" property. Instead of:
obj.outerText

try:
obj.parentNode.innerHTML

give your td an id:

<table>
 <tr>
    <td id="c1">test1</td>
    <td>test2</td
 </tr>
</table>
 
then use:
document.getElementById("c1").innerHTML

Open in new window
