Tables! Really. (<tr> and <td> hovering)
Table css design and hovering in IE

I've recently used some tables again, not for the website layout mind you, and I'm currently working on sexying them up a fair bit.

These tables are used as tables in my opinion are supposed to be used, to display data in a structured and easy scannable way.

I used css to make these tables look their part and I've applied some code to make the horizontal rows light up when hovered:

background: url('../images/trbg.jpg')

This works fine in Chrome and FF, but does not do anything in IE. Some google work gave me a ton of scripts to 'solve' the problem, but so far the problem persists.

Is there any way to make my <tr>'s and <td>'s respond to a hovering mouse?

IE6 ? That poor excuse for a browser doesn't do :hover on anything but an <a> tag.
You can teach it to behave a bit better by using scripted solutions such as IE7.js

Or you can ignore it and let it be a nice surprise the site looks so much better in a decent browser.
