Can you swap images and the href properties associated with both images onclick? For example based on the script below.
I am intending for the links to target either pop-ups or pages in other frames and function like a toggle switch.

<script language="JavaScript"><!--
function flip(name,src) {
    if (document.images)
        document.images[name].src = src;
}
//--></script>

<a href="#" onClick="flip('image1','image1a.gif');return false"><img src="image1.gif" name="image1" width="100" height="100" border="0"></a>

If I understand your question, you're trying to toggle an image src and an popup opener href using Javascript.  This should be possible using something like:

function flip(name,src) {
    switch(name)
    {
       case "image1":
          opener.location = "http://link1";
          document.images[name].src = src;
          break
       case "image2":
          opener.location = "http://link2";
          document.images[name].src = src;
          break
       default:
          break
    }
}

Hi,

 if you remove the 'return false', clicking will send the page to the url

<html><head>
<script>
var imageNames = new Array();
imageNames['image1'] = new Image();
imageNames['image1'].src = 'http://members.aol.com/grassblad/images/grassAvatar.jpg'
imageNames['image2'] = new Image();
imageNames['image2'].src = 'http://members.aol.com/grassblad/images/moiAvatar.jpg'

var imgHrefs = new Array()
imgHrefs['image1'] = 'http://members.aol.com/grassblad'
imgHrefs['image2'] = 'http://www.webxpertz.net/forums'

function flip(lnk, img1, img2)
{
  lnk = imgHrefs[img2];
  document.images[img1].src = imageNames[img2].src;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="#" onclick="flip(this, 'image1','image2');return false"><img src="http://members.aol.com/grassblad/images/grassAvatar.jpg" name="image1" width="100" height="100" border="0"></a>
</body>
</html>
