I have code where I am trying to seperate content from presentation:

<td><input type="text"  name="input2" id="input2" onKeyUp="insertPicture(this.value, 'pic2', 'picUrl2', 'warning2', 'ISBN2');"/></td>
           <td><input type="text"  name="input3" id="input3" onKeyUp="insertPicture(this.value, 'pic3', 'picUrl3', 'warning3', 'ISBN3');"/></td>
           <td><input type="text"  name="input4" id="input4" onKeyUp="insertPicture(this.value, 'pic4', 'picUrl4', 'warning4', 'ISBN4');"/></td>

I don't want any Javascript mixed with my HTML.

I came up with something like this:
window.onload = initPage;

 function initPage() {

document.getElementById("input1").onclick = insertPicture('pic2', 'picUrl2', 'warning2', 'ISBN2')


function insertPicture(a, b, c, d) {

Of course, this code runs when the page loads and not when on onclick.  Any idea how to get it to run onclick?
