<tr style="cursor:pointer" onClick="location.href=Web_Design_and_Hosting.htm'" onMouseOver="this.className='menu_category_tr_over'" onMouseOut="this.className="''">
<td height="25"><a href="Web_Design_and_Hosting.htm">Web Design and Hosting</a></td>

What am I missing here? I get a string error followed by a syntax error. THank you in advance.

I recently told someone that their single and double quotes were a mess. Yours are a mess too ;-)

Look at the onClick attribute:


Can you see how an extra ' has crept in there? That's bad news.

The onMouseOut attribute also has problems.

Ok, so what might the MouseOut problem be? Could you please advise. Thank you for pointing out the missed '.

Just to save you 10 mins I think the onclick should infact be


[single single double]
