I need a Java Script that does the following:
There will be an HTML table displaying Words. When you click on a word
it will change color (and stay changed) and display a definetion.
There will be 20 words on the page. all the defintions need to be
loaded on start in a JS. The ctahc is all the color changing and
definiton displaying must be done without a refresh. It all has to
happen on the fly. When the user clicks another word. It changes color
and stays changed. Anyone?

Hello 350nice-ga,

  Okay, I wrote up some JavaScript that allows
  you to:

    1) define a list of words and their definitions
    2) click on any of the words
    3) the clicked word will change color
    4) the definition for that word will appear elsewhere.

  I have tested the script under both Mozilla and IE.

  You can find an example page here:

  Just look in the source code for that file to find
  the JavaScript.  Please let me know how it works for you.

  I hope that helps you!

Hey 350nice-ga,

  I just realized that you probably
  meant that you wanted the word to
  stay colored, even when you click
  on a new word.  I have put the code
  for that version here:
