a simple IE only example is :

<SPAN onmouseover="this.innerText='MOSHE !!!'" onmouseout="this.innerText='NONONO !!!'">Roll Over ME</SPAN>

something more Cross Brosers would be :

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
sON="<font color='#FF3366'>test</font>"
sOUT="<font color='#663399'>test</font>"
function ch(that){
if (document.all) {

if (that==1) moshe.style.color="#FF3366";
else
moshe.style.color="#663399";
}
          else {
          ref=document.layers.w.layers.moshe.document
if (that==1) {ref.write(sON);ref.close();}
else
{ref.write(sOUT);ref.close();}
}
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<layer id="w" name="w" onMouseOver="ch('1')" onMouseOut="ch('2')">
<div id=moshe name=moshe style="position:absolute" onMouseOver="ch('1')" onMouseOut="ch('2')">
test
</div>
<layer>

Ok thank you. But I think that it isn't what I really need.
I'd like to pass the mouse over the picture, and change a text in another place, like a status panel.

PS:Sorry if my English is wrong.
