Highlighting a table row

Is there a way to get rid of the "onclick" here and just set the
highlight if the book.title == session[:book][:title]? The javascript
works fine for the onclick, but I want to highlight when the page
loads...

<% @books_by_subject.each do |book| %>

   <% if book.title == session[:book][:title] %>
         <tr onClick="HighLightTR(this,'#7C3C3C','#000000');"><td><a
href="/chapters<%= book.id %>"><%= book.title %></a></td> </tr>
    <% else %>
          <tr><td><a href="/chapters/<%= book.id %>"><%= book.title
%></a></td> </tr>
   <% end %>

<% end %>

Thanks,
Dave

Or is there a better way to highlight without using java script?

write it in document.ready function

CSS?

<% @books_by_subject.each do |book| %>
   <% if book.title == session[:book][:title] %>
         <tr id='highlighted-row'><td><a
href="/chapters<%= book.id %>"><%= book.title %></a></td> </tr>
    <% else %>
          <tr><td><a href="/chapters/<%= book.id %>"><%= book.title
%></a></td> </tr>
   <% end %>
<% end %>

Then set the CSS style for #highlighted-row.

If you want to highlight multiple rows, you could use a class instead
of an ID to identify each row to be highlighted.
