I'd like to use a rollover effect with a graphic that I'm using with a <input type=image> tag. I know how to do it using <a href>, but I'd like to use it in a form instead. Can this be done, and if so, how?

Unfortunately it cannot be doneusing the input tag..
a work around would be to make an href rollover and make it submit the form via javascript
<a href="#" onmouseover="change" onmouseout="changeback" onClick="document.formname.submit()"><img tag></a>

That will get the effect of what you want

I was afraid of that. I'm working with code from someone else and it doesn't look like I can easily change the onClick code.

Oh well, thanks anyways.

What I've got works. But like I said, there's a bunch of stuff with the onClick now and I don't want to mess with it too much. Thanks anyways.
