Could be done with graphic links in Netscape, using image rollover with setTimeout()

With text links you cannot do it unless you are able to re-write the frame with <BLINK> tags - and I say frame because if you try to re-write a simple document you destroy it in memory.
Biggest snag is that once re-written the mouse would no longer be over the link - so in phrase "forget it".

Give me an hour or two and I will put up a blinking graphic link demo at http://www.catalog.co.uk/demo/game/flip05.htm
