My first task that I had set out to do was to replace this table row highlighter that was found from somewhere on the web to be using jquery instead. I found that this task to be extremely easy with jquery. The syntax are as follows:
First ofcourse download the jquery library from http://jquery.com/ and include it into your html.
Then do the following:
/*basically toggles the hoverHighlited class everytime the mouse enters the row */
What this will do is every time the mouse enters or leaves the row it will toggle the css class to have a highlighting effect.
