<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.

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 '.
