To assign a class

obj.className = 'myclass'

To add a class

obj.className += ' myclass' // NOTE the leading blank

Existing class(es) can also be removed.

To refer to the row in question use something like

var obj = document.getElementById('myspecialrow')

or in the more general case

var obj = document.getElementById{'myspecialtable'}.rows[myspecialrownum] // where "myspecialrownum" is the index of 'myspecialrow', starting from zero

fxm...thanks for the tip!
