If you are willing to use JavaScript this can be easily accomplished.

<a href = "javascript:document.forms[0].submit ()"><img src = "someimage.gif"></a>

<form method=post target=_top>
<input type="image" name="Goto" src="../images/goto.jpg" border="0" alt="Goto">

TYPE=IMAGE  An image field that you can click, causing the form to be immediately submitted. The coordinates of the selected point are measured in pixel units from the upper-left corner of the image, and are returned (along with the other contents of the form) in two name/value pairs. The x-coordinate is submitted under the name of the field with ".x" appended, and the y-coordinate is submitted under the name of the field with ".y" appended. Any VALUE= attribute is ignored. The image itself is specified by the SRC= attribute, exactly as for the IMG element.
