Hi,

This should do it.
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
	<tr style="cursor:pointer;width: 250px;" onclick="javascript:location='index.php?mod=batch&act=create'" onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#A0A0A4';cursor: pointer; cursor: hand;" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''">
		<td>row 1 col 1</td>
		<td>row 1 col 2</td>
	</tr>
	<tr style="cursor:pointer;width: 250px;" onclick="javascript:location='index.php?mod=batch&act=create'" onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#A0A0A4';cursor: pointer; cursor: hand;" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''">
		<td>row 2col 1</td>
		<td>row 2 col 2</td>
	</tr>
	<tr style="cursor:pointer;width: 250px;" onclick="javascript:location='index.php?mod=batch&act=create'" onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#A0A0A4';cursor: pointer; cursor: hand;" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''">
		<td>row 3 col 1</td>
		<td>row 3 col 2</td>
	</tr>
</table>

Think this is what you are after.
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  <tr>
    <td style="cursor:pointer; width: 200px;" onclick="javascript:location='yourpage.htm'" onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#eee'; style.textDecoration='underline'; cursor: pointer; cursor: hand;" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''; style.textDecoration='none';">row 1 col 1</td> <td>row 1 col 2</td> <td>row 1 col 3</td> <td>row 1 col 4</td> <td>row 1 col 5</td>
  </tr>
</table>

That will only change the colour of the 1st cell, question states row to change colour.

Your idea looks good but i think is not efficient to declare cursor pointer in every row .
you know any jquery that can do this?
