Hover Over Photos to Enlarge Them on ASP Page

I have an ASP web page that holds ten thumbnail photos.  I want to be able to hover over the thumbnails and have an enlarged photo of each pop up.  I found some code to do this at http://cssdemos.tupence.co.uk/image-popup.htm.  One of the problems I am having is the sample code requires an unordered list of the thumbnails.  This is easy if your photos are statically held in an Images folder.  Mine are dynamic, served to the page inside recordsets; one for thumbnail photos (rsThumbs), and the other for enlargements of the thumbnails (rsLarge).

How can I move through these recordsets and create a <li> tag for each of the ten thumbnail photos and a <span> tag for each of the enlargements that are served?
 
If you follow the above link and see how the process works, it may take less time for you experts to understand my dilemma.  If, on the other hand, someone has an easier or better way to do this, I would love to hear it.

Thanks!!

Just use 'response.write' or <%=...%> to put the image file names in the 'src' attributes.
    <!--THE IMAGES ARE PLACED IN AN UNORDERED LIST-->
    <ul class="enlarge"> <!--We give the list a class so that we can style it seperately from other unordered lists-->

    <!--First Image-->
    <li>
    <img src="<% response.write("image01s.jpg") %>" width="150px" height="100px" alt="" /> <!--thumbnail image-->
    <span> <!--span contains the popup image-->
    <img src="<% response.write("image01L.jpg") %>" alt="" /> <!--popup image-->
    <br /><% response.write("Image 1 caption") %><!--caption appears under the popup image-->
    </span>
    </li>

    <!--Second Image-->
    <li>
    <img src="<%="image02s.jpg" %>" width="150px" height="100px" alt="" /> <!--thumbnail image-->
    <span> <!--span contains the popup image-->
    <img src="<%="image02L.jpg" %>" alt="" /> <!--popup image-->
    <br /><%="Image 2 caption" %><!--caption appears under the popup image-->
    </span>
    </li>

    </ul>
