i need to make a paragraph of text identified by a <div> grow in size when the user moves their mouse if that portion of text. I Guess it needs to use onMouseOver and getElementById but i not sure what else is needed, i have trawled the internet for the best part of an hour trying to solve this problem, but then deided to ask you guys how to solve this issue. This needs to be done using javascript(obviously)

Your code looks okay. I think you need to specify the fontSize="24" as a point or pixel or something. Like fontSize="24pt"; I didn't try this, but your code looks fine.
