though this is not a "how do I xyz with (X)HTML/CSS/EcmaScript?" list, I 
answer. This list is about discussing the future of (X)HTML.

Afaik, it's undefined wether the current element id automatically becomes 
event handler context. So you would have to use the getElementsById('demo') 
to get this working with Mozilla.

Also, what you do can be achieved without Event Handling / EcmaScript / DOM by 
simple means of CSS:
<!-- ... -->
<style type="text/css">
*#demo:hover {
    background:url(normal-down.gif);
}
</style>
<!-- ... -->
<td height="40" width="80" id="demo">hai jeetu</td>
<!-- ... -->

Usually it's best to do with the simplest possible solution. The CSS solution 
will also work if the user has disabled EcmaScript.

Bye

P.S.:
EcmaScript is aka JavaScript
