Help with html menu (getting the buttons to link )

I am using a program called multimedia builder, which can have Browser objects (browser windows)
as part of the design. The particular app i am working on has 2 browser objects, one for the menu buttons
and the other, larger one for the html pages.

Inside multimedia builder, I would use the following code for a menu button to get it to link to page2.html

<li><a href="scriptcode1:Browser(&quot;Browser&quot;,&quot;<SrcDir>\page1.html&quot;)">page 1</a>

Browser being the name of the browser object.

What I need to do is incorporate that command into the script you see below (on the down command)
(so all i really want is, code for when the mouse is pressed down, execute the line of code you
see above. keep in mind that button23 is just 4 images, so not sure if the >page 1</a> is needed.

Try this:

<a href="scriptcode1:Browser(&quot;Browser&quot;,&quot;<SrcDir>\page1.html&quot;)"><img id="Button1" class="inputImage" src="button22-up.jpg" onmouseover="doRollOver(this);" onmouseout="doRollOut(this);" onmouseup="doClick(this);" onmousedown="doClick(this, true);" ondragstart="return false" onselectstart="return false"></a>
 
or
 
 
<form action="#" onSubmit="scriptcode1:Browser(&quot;Browser&quot;,&quot;<SrcDir>\page1.html&quot;); return false">
 
or 
 
<form method="get" action="scriptcode1:Browser(&quot;Browser&quot;,&quot;<SrcDir>\page1.html&quot;)">
