Running your code, I get the <tbody> element, rather than undefined, but...

Thanks much Bear, I understand what this means, but unable to get why parent.parent does not work? is there any limit for using parent.parent.parent... ?

well I am just at chapter 2 of your book, so not fully armed, i guess i will be in better position after few weeks.

can you also help me with following code ( i know spoon feeding is not good, but its really late here and im scratching my head for long ), from following code i have to get all <a tags and assign some id and class to them so that they look like <a href="" id="sort_col1" class="sorted_by_descending">some text </a>.
