Move the onClick event to the image and not the anchor (A - tag). Maybe IE realoads thus always resetting your "previous" variable. You could style your "inactive" with "cursor: hand; " to make it appear as an achor :-)

No good, doing it wothout <a> tags it dosent even work in forefox.
 <img id="dinmenu01" class="inactive" onMouseOver="this.style.cursor='pointer';" src="dinmenu01.jpg" onclick="deleteImage('this.id');" alt="" width="80" />

This produces the same result in IE and FF.
 <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
 
var previous = '';
function deleteImage(field){
 
        document.getElementById('form1').deleteImage.value = field;
        if (previous != ''){document.getElementById(previous).className='inactive';}
        document.getElementById(field).className='active';
        previous = field;
        
}
</script>
 
<a onclick="deleteImage('dinmenu01');"><img id="dinmenu01" class="active" src="pixel.gif" alt="" width="80" height=80 /></a><br />
<a onclick="deleteImage('dinmenu02');"><img id="dinmenu02" class="active" src="pixel.gif" alt="" width="80" height=80  /></a><br />
<a onclick="deleteImage('dinmenu03');"><img id="dinmenu03" class="active" src="pixel.gif" alt="" width="80" height=80  /></a><br />
<a onclick="deleteImage('dinmenu04');"><img id="dinmenu04" class="active" src="pixel.gif" alt="" width="80" height=80  /></a><br />
<a onclick="deleteImage('dinmenu05');"><img id="dinmenu05" class="active" src="pixel.gif" alt="" width="80" height=80  /></a><br />
 
<form id="form1">
<input type=text id="deleteImage"></form>

Change the name of the deleteImage field in the form to somthing else like deletedImage. Browser gets confused becuse the field and the function has the same name.
