I have two tables on my page, that I only want the style functionality to work on the second table but not the first.

right now it hightlight any table I have on the page but what I just want to hightlight is the second table only
the JQuery and Css need to specify to apply the Style just to the second table.

here's what I have.

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../js/jquery-1.4.2.min.js" ></script> 

<style type="text/css">

   font: 70% Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;    
   color: #063774;                    
   border: 1px #B4D0F3 solid;    
   border-collapse: collapse;    
   background-color: #063774;   
   color: White;   
   padding: 10px 18px;  
   text-align: left;    
   padding: 5px 9px;    


<table background="../../images/BackgroundImg.png" style="width:100%;margin-bottom:0px;margin-left:0px;margin-right:0px; border:0px;">
    	<td style="width:80px;font-weight:bold;padding:5px;"><span style="color:#004080;">Search by: </span>
     <td colspan="2" style="padding:10px;">
        <input type="text" value="" name="" size="50"> <input type="button" value="GO" name="GO">

<table style="width:100%;border:none;outline:none;border-collapse: collapse;"> 
    	<th style="font-weight:normal;background-image:url(../../images/BackgroundImgshort.png);text-align:left;border-top:1px #ccc solid;border-left:1px #ccc solid;
        border-bottom:1px #ccc solid;border-right:1px #e5e4e4 solid;padding-left:5px;font-size:15px;font-weight:bold;">Name
    	<td style="font-weight:normal;border:none;outline:none;border-collapse: collapse;text-align:left;

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {  
   //add class "highlight" when hover over the row  
   $('table tbody tr').hover(function() {
