i really like the menu, the thing is i have no clue to with how to alter the top text into images... and images that change when you hover the mouse pointer on it.

here's an example: www.bengals.com

see how the top nav where 'team' 'news' 'tckets', etc are? i want that image changing effect. i already am creating the images. my biggest challenge now is to get that effect to work with this tab mouse over menu.

somebody pleeeeease help me with this.!!!!!!!

i have even included the code to make it easier for you guys to understand what im trying to do. i have 2 onMouseover events on one because i need it to do both. but it only choses one or the either. more specifically the first of whatever onMouseover command.

--start sample code--
<!--Links used to initiate the sub menus. Pass in the desired submenu index numbers (ie: 0, 1) -->
<table border="1" width="35&#37;" id="table1">
<td width="140">
<a href="http://www.northwestjaguars.com/team.html" onMouseover="showit(0)" onMouseOut="if(document.images){document.abc.src='http://www.northwestjaguars.com/files/TopNavigation/06Basic-A.gif';}" target="_self" onMouseOver="if(document.images){document.abc.src='http://www.northwestjaguars.com/files/TopNavigation/06Basic-B.gif';}">
<img alt="" name="abc" src="http://www.northwestjaguars.com/files/TopNavigation/06Basic-A.gif" height="49" border="0" width="117"></a></td>
<a href="http://www.northwestjaguars.com/news.html" onMouseover="showit(1)">News</a></td>
<div id="describe" style="background-color:#CCCCCC;width:383px;height:18px" onMouseover="clear_delayhide()" onMouseout="resetit(event)">
<p align="center"></div>

return true;
return false;

actually i figured that out myself. (placed a semicolon). now my problem is.. when i scroll down to the selections, the image goes back to its original form.
