I came up with this javascript to highlight an area, and I can't figure out why it's not working:

Code:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function menu(area) {

	if (area) {
	
		onLoad=area.style.backgroundColor='#eeeeee';

	}
		
	return;
	
}
//-->
</script>

<body onLoad="menu('home');">
How do I get the area variable to be put place? Like:

onLoad=home.style.backgroundColor='#eeeeee';

Thanks
