Can I make some buttons that do a little something???

I have a FP framed page.
In the upper (top) frame, there is an image containing a logo, some words and some buttons. The buttons are just part of the bit-map and I can make them fire off a web page by mapping the bit-map, but I wondered if there was a way to give them a little more pizzaz.
I'd like them to have rollover and on-click events somehow.
I can't put buttons on top of the image (not allowed).
Any thoughts?

You can use div's for this to show and hide images on top of your image map, and use the onclick event for the function. Here's an example:

<html>
<head>
<title>ImageMap Rollover</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function show(layerid) {
  if (document.all){
    layerid.style.visibility="visible"
    }
  else
  if(document.layers){
    layerid.visibility="show"
    }
  }
function hide(layerid){
  if (document.all){
    layerid.style.visibility="hidden"
    }
  else
  if(document.layers){
    layerid.visibility="hide"
    }
  }
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<img src="images/myimage.gif" border="0" usemap="#imagemap1" width="200" height="100">
<map name="imagemap1">
<area shape="rect" coords="0,0,100,100" href="page1.html" onMouseover="show(image1);" onMouseout="hide(image1);" onClick="somefunction();">
<area shape="rect" coords="100,0,200,100" href="page2.html" onMouseover="show(image2);" onMouseout="hide(image2);" onClick="somefunction();">
</map>

<div id="image1" style="position:absolute;l eft:0;top:0; visibility:hidden; width:100px; height:100px;">
<img src="images/myimage2.gif" border="0" width="100" height="100">
</div>

<div id="image2" style="position:absolute; left:100;top:100; visibility:hidden; width:100px; height:100px;">
<img src="images/myimage3.gif" border="0" width="100" height="100">
</div>
</body>
</html>
