Can I change the value of a php variable using javascript?
For example I have a few onmouseOver events that I want to change the value of a PHP variable $spec

onmouseOver='bigimage.src="<?php echo $imagebig1; ?>";<?php $spec = 1; ?>'
onmouseOver='bigimage.src="<?php echo $imagebig2; ?>";<?php $spec = 2; ?>'
onmouseOver='bigimage.src="<?php echo $imagebig3; ?>";<?php $spec = 3; ?>'

and then my Buy Button has the following
onClick="location.href='javascript:AddItem(<?php echo $rs_prods['PID']?>,1,<?php echo $spec; ?>)'"

function AddItem($PID, $qty, $spec)
            var item = $PID;
            var qty = $qty;
            var spec = $spec;
            self.location = "addtocart.php?action=add_item&id="+item+"&qty="+qty+"&spec="+spec;

I doesnt appear to be working as it just sets $spec equal to 3 every time
