Highlight and increase font size on a hover in a html Table

I want to have the row on a mouse hover Highlight and font size increase for that particular row the mouse selects. I hardcoded a xml file and increment is off to make it easy to check out. I had to zip up html and xml file cause EE changes _ underscore to a dash - if uploaded the only way is to put in zip file. Not sure if this is a css thing or jquery statement I just want to give some life to the page.
here is code.Live demo example

You want to be careful changing the font size inside a table cell. It may cause a change in the cell dimensions and cause the overall presentation of the table to change.
