This assignment uses the DOM Style Object to modify CSS properties with Javascript when events, such as OnClick and OnMouseOver and OnMouseOut occur. You may also want to look at Text input validation at w3.
Following best programming practices can be difficult to do with a flexible language like JS. It can also make debugging very difficult. Run your Javascript through this website to ensure you are using best practices:
