I need a script that will randomly generate an image and the corresponding popup link. The following are three examples of hyperlinks and corresponding images. In addition I also need to run this script multiple times within the page for various product groups. Any ideas???

#1
<a href="productdetails/bathgelpure.html" TARGET="popup" ONCLICK="window.open('productdetails/bathgelpure.html', 'popup', 'width=400,height=475', 'scrollbars=yes'); return false">
<img border="0" src="siteimages/bathgelpure.gif"></a>

#2
<a href="productdetails/bathgelpure2.html" TARGET="popup" ONCLICK="window.open('productdetails/bathgelpure.html', 'popup', 'width=400,height=475', 'scrollbars=yes'); return false">
<img border="0" src="siteimages/bathgelpure2.gif"></a>

#3
<a href="productdetails/bathgelpure3.html" TARGET="popup" ONCLICK="window.open('productdetails/bathgelpure.html', 'popup', 'width=400,height=475', 'scrollbars=yes'); return false">
<img border="0" src="siteimages/bathgelpure3.gif"></a>

Here's a simple javascript ad randomizer.  You define one function per ad group, with the ad keys in there.  showAdHtml builds the html for each.

<script type="text/javascript">
function showAdGroupA()
{
    names = [ 'bathgelpure', 'bathgelpure2', 'bathgelpure3' ];
    document.write( showAdHtml( names[ Math.floor(Math.random()*names.length) ] ) );
}

// this function is generic - just supply the name
function showAdHtml( name )
{
    return '<a href="productdetails/' + name +
           '.html" TARGET="popup" ONCLICK="window.open(\'productdetails/' + name +
           '.html\', \'popup\', \'width=400,height=475\', \'scrollbars=yes\'); return false"><img border="0"

src="siteimages/' + name +
           '.gif"></a>';
}

// to show the ad, do this.
showAdGroupA()
</script>

The software here broke up the lines.  The following should be on one line, no breaks:

           '.html\', \'popup\', \'width=400,height=475\', \'scrollbars=yes\'); return false"><img border="0"
src="siteimages/' + name +
