When making a webpage, rollover images malfunction to show the rollover change over one central image, instead of the specified image. What did I do wrong?


Here's what I mean (ignore the whote squares, I edited out the title and any telling informationbecause this website is for a client)


(without rollover)



(when rolled-over)

    1. The page has no doctype. It should do so to prevent browsers from rendering in Quirks mode.

    2. The page is built using methods right out of the mid-nineties. Are you sure you want to use such an antique approach?

    3. Many of your image tags are improperly formed, e.g., < img, instead of <img. There should be no space between the opening bracket and the "img".


    Your problem is that all of the rollovers are targeting "image31" -


    <a href="#" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('Image31','','images/index_ov_08.gif',1)"><img src="images/Index_08.gif" width="127" height="79" id="Image"></a>


    So for example, this rollover should target the id of the image to rollover - "Image" -


    <a href="#" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('Image','','images/index_ov_08.gif',1)"><img src="images/Index_08.gif" width="127" height="79" id="Image"></a>


    and this -


    <a href="#" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('Image31','','images/index_ov_09.gif',1)">< img src="images/Index_09.gif" width="127" height="59" id="Image2"></a>


    should target "Image2" -


    <a href="#" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('Image2','','images/index_ov_09.gif',1)"><i mg src="images/Index_09.gif" width="127" height="59" id="Image2"></a>


    Had you initially applied the rollovers properly to each of those images, this would not have happened.


    By the way, this page has no readable content and will therefore not be ranked at all by search engines.
