Make a rollover image behave as an HTML button to carry over POST data

I'm having difficulties with a rollover image with JS.  This means that it behaves as a link rather than a button and does not allow me to carry over form’s POST info.  I wish I could, but I can't just use a button (that would make my life too easy) and I'm stuck having to use images which were already approved by the client.

Thanks guys,
Kasia

Never mind...

I did some research while waiting and found this to work.
