& lt;/span& gt;



I want to change "textstring" color whenever user mouse over on it.can anyone help me to sort out this petty problem.

And also , i am getting some problem in posting this topic. It shows me some html related tag problems. I appreciate if some one could tell me how to post HTML code.


Thanks to All.
Have a Good Day!

For security reasons, the forum code will filter out certain JavaScript phrases. The phrase "eval" and most of the "onwhatever" event attributes will trigger the filter.

P.S. If you are only concerned with modern browsers, you can do this with CSS and no JavaScript.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
