That worked great! Thanks a bunch!

Now, I have to ask. . . .is there any way to make the whole row a link?

I can pull the link dynamically from a DB, but I don't fully understand the
DOM (hey. . .gimme a break, I'm trying. . .)and not sure how that would be
rendered. . .  any thoughts?

You can call this.style.className - then have the class name in your CSS
which the page access (could be on the page, could be in a linked


So you need whiteThing and yellowThing classes:

<style type="text/css">
.yellowThing {
background: #FF9;
.whiteThing {
background: #FFF;

I have something similar here:

But I really need to move it to http://www.artlung.com/lab/ somewhere.
