Help with JavaScript in SVG

We have SVGs that we are trying to write some javascript for to provide certain interactivity. Our SVGs consist of geometry that exist in several 'g' elements. Each <g> element has its own unique ID. We have been trying to write a script that will perform the following functionality in our SVGs:

1. Upon inital load, all <g> elements contain black geometry. During onmouseover, it will highlight the associated <g> element in yellow.

2. If a <g> element is clicked, then it highlights the geometry in a specified color (which can be passed in the script). This state must be maintained (i.e. onmouseover and onmouseout events will not affect the state) until the same <g> element is clicked again.

3. If the <g> is clicked a second time, it returns to its normal state (black geometry, onmouseover = yellow, onmouseout = black).

So, the cliff notes version:

state = black
if clicked = false{
onmouseover = yellow
onmouseout = black
}
if clicked = true{
onclick = color
onmouseover = null
onmouseout = null
}

We have been able to get one or the other (onmouseover/onmouseout OR onclick) to work, but we have been horribly unsuccessful in getting them to work together. Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated.
I have attached a sample subset snippet of SVG code below.

Actually, is there a way to include the stroke as well? Including fill and stroke.

Yes. Just insert the following code after line 22:
evt.target.setAttribute("stroke", colour);

The problem we are still having is that it doesn't affect the entire <g> element, but rather only the specific geometry. When I originally accepted the answer, it appeared to work on the small subset.

Any ideas as to how to make this work for the entire <g> element? I can ask a separate question if you prefer.

thanks!

Similar to the following, but we cannot set the clicked state to true, and get the rest of the script to recognize.

I really appreciate your assistance with this.

Cheers.

Now uses evt.currentTarget (which is the g element) instead of evt.target (which was the individual element within the g(roup)).
