component: coreevent

Can you please describe what isn't working properly ?

What problem are you experiencing ?

None of the event handlers are called. Therefore, on both Firefox 2.0 and Firefox 3.0 the row backround is not changed and the alert never appears.

It works perfectly well in Safari.

One more note. I've noticed using Firebug that the class of the row is changed but somehow this isn't visible in the display....

Thank you for your response.

I've changed the code replacing the _ from the tag ids but it still doesn't work.

I have also tested in Firefox (2 and 3) on Linux and it still doesn't work.

If you still have not figured this one out. Close your script tag for the jquery include.

Script tags cannot be self closing.
