<script>
   
    function getID(obj)
    {
        alert(obj.id);
    }
</script>

<script>
   
    function getID(obj)
    {
var lastID = null;

var hMouseover = function (e) {
    var target = e.target || e.srcElement;
    lastID = target.id;
};

if (document.addEventListener) {
    document.addEventListener('mouseover', hMouseover, false);
}
else {
    document.attachEvent('onmouseover', hMouseover);
}
