Asp.Net - Using JavaScript to highlight table row

I'm using JavaScript to highlight table rows on mouse over:

      function HighlightRow(row) {
            row.style.backgroundColor = '#eeff00'

      function UnHilightRow(row) {
            row.style.backgroundColor = '#ffffff'

In my table, the row background color alternates between white and lightgray.
When I mouse over a row it gets highlighted with yellow (as expected).
When I mouse out, the background color gets set to white.

I need to find a way to get the current row background color on mouse over and before highlighting.
Then when I mouse out of it, the background color needs to be reverted to what it was before.
Something like:

      function HighlightRow(row) {
            // Get current row background color
            // Highlight row:
            row.style.backgroundColor = '#eeff00'

      function UnHilightRow(row) {
            // What was the original color?      
            var origRowColor = (??? from function above)

            // If it was White (or '#ffffff') then
            row.style.backgroundColor = '#ffffff'
            // Else
            // Revert to what it was before it got highlighted
            row.style.backgroundColor = origRowColor
