onmouseover image does not change in IE6


This may be a simple question but could someone enlighten me as to how to change an image (menu button) in IE6? It works fine in Mozilla but nothing happens in IE. Here is the code:

<div id="welcomeMenu">
      <a href="schools/index.html"><img name="imageflip2" onMouseOver="src='Images/Menu/SchoolsOn.png'"     onMouseOut="src='Images/Menu/SchoolsOff.png'" src="Images/Menu/SchoolsOff.png" alt="" height="25" width="75" border="0"></a>

</div>

Have you tried putting "this." in front of src in your attribute?

<a href="schools/index.html"><img name="imageflip2" onMouseOver="this.src='Images/Menu/SchoolsOn.png'"     onMouseOut="this.src='Images/Menu/SchoolsOff.png'" src="Images/Menu/SchoolsOff.png" alt="" height="25" width="75" border="0"></a>

Hi
I think it does't metter if you write "this" or not as its already inline. There is no error in that code of MulaG. It works for ie. I used my images and checked.

Thanks guys but I've tried .this and it doesn't work. Also went to the tutorial link and still no joy. I'm confused as to how Nabsol got it working in IE using the same code and it fails for me? Is this anything to do with me running the webpage locally?

Cheers

Hi

Actualy i used images of that site. icon1 and icon2 and i put those images into images/menu folder and written this code and it works. You may try this

<html>
<head>

<title>Untitled Document</title>
<SCRIPT language=javascript src="mycode.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT></head>

<body>
<div id="welcomeMenu">
<a href="schools/index.html">
<img name="imageflip2" onMouseOver="src='Images/Menu/icon1.gif'" onMouseOut="src='Images/Menu/icon2.gif'" src="Images/Menu/icon2.gif" alt="" height="25" width="75" border="0"></a>

</div>
</body>
</html>

When you are using xhtml, then use lowercase onmouseover and onmouseout. and put a / at the end of the image tag: />
