onclick animation...

I know how to use rollover javascripts to make a (hyperlinked) image change state before being clicked on (onmouseover/onmouseout), but is there a way of changing state for a non-hyperlinked image? Specifically, I want a static image which animates when clicked on. The animation can be handled by using an animated GIF, I just need someone to give me the right script (some variation of onClick I would imagine, but I don't really know enough about it...).

Cheers.

There's presently no method to detect an onMouseover event for a "regular" image - you can create a "fake" link to manipulate it, though:

<A HREF="javascript:doThis()"><IMG SRC="thing.gif"></A>

Note that the function doThis() will be executed onClick - if you'd like the click to do nothing, then create an "empty" function for doThis().  You may also add event handlers to the HREF to manipulate the image onMouseover, etc.

If my comment works better for you, I would like the opportunity to post this as an answer.

I'm sure jshamlin's answer works, but at my level of knowledge 'empty functions' means nothing... techbuilder's answer is both more elegant and works, so at the risk of offending jshamlin, I think I'd rather his answer was posted.
But thank you both for your time!

Best regards,
