This will work in IE4 and NS4:

<layer onmouseover="parent.otherFrame.document.images[0].src='new_url.gif'" onmouseout="parent.otherFrame.document.images[0].src='old_url.gif'">
<span onmouseover="parent.otherFrame.document.images[0].src='new_url.gif'" onmouseout="parent.otherFrame.document.images[0].src='old_url.gif'">
The words
</span>
</layer>

The layer tag is for NS4, the span for IE4.

You could write all this with a javascript:

<script language=javascript1.2>
if(navigator.appName="Netscape")
  tagname="span"
else
  tagname="layer"

document.write("<"+tagname+" onmouseover='parent.otherFrame.document.images[0].src=\"new_url.gif\"' onmouseout='parent.otherFrame.document.images[0].src=\"old_url.gif\"'>");
document.write("The words");
document.write("</"+tagname+">");

</script>

Here is aslightly neater javascript version taking into account all 3 images:

<script language=javascript1.2>
function changeSrc(imgName,srcURL){
  eval("parent.otherFrame.document."+imgName+".src='"+srcURL+"'");
}


if(navigator.appName="Netscape")
  tagname="span"
else
  tagname="layer"

document.write("<"+tagname+" onmouseover='changeSrc(\"image1\",\"new_src1.gif\");changeSrc(\"image2\",\"new_src2.gif\");changeSrc(\"image3\",\"new_src3.gif\");' onmouseout='changeSrc(\"image1\",\"old_src1.gif\");changeSrc(\"image2\",\"old_src2.gif\");changeSrc(\"image3\",\"old_src3.gif\");'>");
document.write("The words");
document.write("</"+tagname+">");

</script>

where 'image1' etc are names given to images in the other frame and 'new_src1.gif' etc are urls of image files.
