Hi,

Here's a sample form:

CODE
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Sample Form</title>
</head>
<body>
<form action="#">
<label for="fname">First name</label><input type="text" id="fname">
<br>
<label for="lname">Last name</label><input type="text" id="lname">
</form>
</body>
</html>


I wonder how I can change the label color when I focus/tab on its text filed? How can I do it through JavaScript if CSS doesn't work here?

Thanks in advance!
Mike

Maybe something like this?

CODE
function highlight(elem_id)
{
    var elem=document.getElementById(elem_id);
    elem.onfocus=function()
    {
        this.previousSibling.className='focus';
    }
    elem.onblur=function()
    {
        this.previousSibling.className='';
    }
}
highlight('fname');
highlight('lname');
