Adding an Activate/Deactive Button to a Javascript Function


I'm no javascript programmer but I found a really good piece of
javascript at http://www.isdntek.com/tagbot/zipzoom.htm that magnifies
areas of an image. It's just what I want but their example only allows
for a button in the HTML body to turn the magnifier on:

<input type="button" onclick="initMagnifier()" value="Use Magnifier">

I would like two buttons; one to activate the magnifier and one to
deactivate the magnifier. How would I do that? I can see in the code
that there is a variable called `magthis' which is either true or
false. So I'm guessing that's what the buttons have to control.

Any help would be appreciated. I've included a copy of the code so that
you don't need to go to the website.

Thank you.

How would you even know? Those facts are antivalent, and the junk code you
have posted definitely proves that. I will skip proving to you why it is
junk, it is just not worth that much amount of free time. Read the FAQ
instead: <URL:http://jibbering.com/faq/>.
In the First World War, 13 million people were killed. In the Second
World War, 40 million people were killed. I think that if a third war
takes place, nothing is going to be left on the face of earth.

Really, if you are going to use that quotation in your non-standards-
respecting "signature", you ought to moderate your dictatorial behaviour
in order not to give the impression that the present generation of
Germans are as obnoxious as so many of their nominal ancestors of
various previous generations. Remember Doorn.
