Hi.
I have this code that works in IE but not in FFox :

onmouseover="getElementById('101').style.color='#286EA0'; getElementById('101').style.fontSize='18';"

onmouseout="getElementById('101').style.color='#808080'; getElementById('101').style.fontSize='12';">

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Font color is theonly thing i can change in FFox...
How can i make the font size work ?

Try using:

document.getElementById

instead of only:

getElementById

No, nothing.
I've also tried using a script, function... But the only things Firefox can do is change colors...

If you put the font sizing before the color changing, what happens?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If i put only font sizing alone ... nothing...
If i put it first also nothing.
Anything else except font color wont work !

Here is code that works in IE and FF. Copy it into your page and make any necessary changes.


<script type="text/javascript">
 
var css = document.styleSheets[0]; // get the FIRST stylesheet
var rules = css.cssRules ? css.cssRules : css.rules; // x-browser CSS rules
 
var mode = 0; // swap indicator
// -------------------------------------
 
function find_rule(rule) {
    for (var i = 0; i < rules.length; i++) {
        if (rules[i].selectorText.toLowerCase().indexOf(rule) >= 0) { // find rule
            return rules[i];
        }
    }
     return null;
}
// -------------------------------------
 
function change_rule(new_rule) {
    var old_rule = find_rule(new_rule.rule);
    if (old_rule != null) {
        old_rule.style[new_rule.attr] = new_rule.valu; // apply new css
    }
}
// -------------------------------------
 
function change_css(new_rule) {
    for (var i = 0; i < new_rule.length; i++) {
        change_rule(new_rule[i]); // apply all new css
    }
}
// -------------------------------------
 
 
function css_hack() {
/*
 Presumably, you have CSS to set the font size and color. Let's call this rule 'base'.
 It looks like this:
 
 base { color: #808080; font-size: 12px; font-style: normal; }
 
You change the base rule like this:
 
 var new_rule = 
     [
         {'rule':'base','attr':'color', 'valu':'#286ea0' },
         {'rule':'base','attr':'fontSize', 'valu':'18px'; }
     ];
     change_css(new_rule);
 */
	var new_rule = [];
	
	if (mode == 0) { /* 'normal' mode */
		new_rule.push({'rule':'base','attr':'color','valu':'#ff0000'});
		new_rule.push({'rule':'base','attr':'fontSize','valu':'48px'});
		new_rule.push({'rule':'base','attr':'fontStyle','valu':'normal'});
	}
	else { /* changed mode */
		new_rule.push({'rule':'base','attr':'color','valu':'#0000ff'});
		new_rule.push({'rule':'base','attr':'fontSize','valu':'14px'});
		new_rule.push({'rule':'base','attr':'fontStyle','valu':'italic'});
	}
	mode = ((mode == 0) ? 1 : 0);
	change_css(x);
	document.getElementById('cmd_css').value = 'Change CSS (' + mode + ')';
}
 
</script>
