onmousedown doesn't seem to be working


Recommended Posts

I am jumping into javascript and ajax for the first time.


As i am going through my tutorials i am learning about the different javascript events. particularly in this case the onmousedown event.


my code below is exact to the tutorial, this is what i have.


           <title>Javascript Event Example</title>

<body onmousedown="document.bgcolor='pink'">
Click this page to turn it pink.




according to the tutorial in the book I have the page is supposed to turn pink when you click on it. I have tried several different servers to eliminate the server being configured wrong. Also tried Firefox and Explorer with no luck.


Does anyone know why this isn't working??


thanks in advance.
