to

If you really need it to act as a button, you will need two pictures (standard and 'pressed') you will then need to use the onClick event from JavaScript or VBScript to swap the images when the user clicks on it.

You could, of course, also use the onMouseOver and onMouseOut events to change the graphical button (eg make text/image glow) whilst the mouse is over it.
