Sorry, maybe I didn't understand your question...
     Are you trying to make the date an image?
     Are you trying to make the URL go to an image?

Thank you for your reply.  I would like my own image to replace the date.  I don't want to change the link target, just the appearance of the link.

You could try this:
document.write("<a href=\""+theImages[whichImage]+"\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\""+theImages[whichImage]+"\" \/><\/a>");

Thank you.  Unfortunately, due to lack of expertise, I don't know how to implement your instructions.  Below is the existing code.  Would you mind inserting the code you provided where it belongs, and I will test it?

<center><div id="digicertsitesealcode" style="width: 81px; margin: 5px auto 5px auto;"></div></center>

You can change the link of the image by using document.getElementById("IMGname/ID").src=(image URL).

Thank you.  Would you mind showing me where that code needs to be inserted, with respect to the code shown in my previous comment?

It turns out that the image, appearing as a date, is generated by javascript on a remote server.  It's apparently not subject to having my own image substituted.  Thanks to both experts for responding.
