trying to use an image to use as a textwrap but just refreshes page?

ok for my bbcode i want to enter images... so for this iv came up with this html/javascript  (sown below)

but the problem is when ever i click on the image.. it enters it into the textbox but then refreshes the page :S how comes??

as can be seen by the code there is a toggle area to which you can view the smilies by clicking a button or not!


function initialise() {
var element = document.getElementById('element-id');
 
if (element && element.style)
element.style.display = 'none';
}
 
function toggleDisplay(element) {
var style;
 
if (typeof element == 'string')
element = document.getElementById(element);
if (element && (style = element.style))
style.display = (style.display == 'none') ? '' : 'none';
}
 
if (!document.getElementById)
document.getElementById = function() {return null;};
 
<input type="button" value="Smilies" onclick="toggleDisplay('element-id');">
<div id="element-id" style="display: none;">
<INPUT TYPE="image" SRC="http://www.runningprofiles.com/emoticons/smiley.gif" name='smile' onclick='wrapText(document.getElementById(&#39;inputforum&#39;),&#39;:&#39;,&#39;)&#39;);'>
</div>

No that's just the call to wrapText. I need the actual function like

function wrapText(){
//some code here

}

input type=image is a submit button
and you use the wrong quotes
Instead do

<a href="#" title="smile"
onclick="wrapText(document.getElementById('inputforum'),':',')'); return false"><img 
src="http://www.runningprofiles.com/emoticons/smiley.gif" border="0"></a>
