[_] Dreamweaver Question

 From the Macromedia site: "Dynamic Style HTML can be used to change the
color of text based on mouse interaction. In this example a line of text
will graphically change, activated by whether the mouse is over the text or
not. The following code will affect the line of text, "The Itchy and
Scratchy Show". The color will dynamically change, based on user

<FONT FACE="Verdana, Arial, Times" SIZE="2" COLOR="#00BB00"
onmouseover="'#FF0000'" onmouseout="
='#00BB00'">The Itchy and Scratchy Show</FONT>
This will make the text, "The Itchy and Scratchy Show" green, and when the
mouse rolls over it, the text will turn red. When the mouse leaves the
text, it will return to the original green. 

If it is desired to make the text a hyperlink, the <A HREF> tags must be
placed outside the <FONT> tags. Otherwise, the styles will break and the
browser won't render the effect as expected.
