rollover problem

Can someone please tell me what the heck is wrong with my code here on line

understanding why. There must be something im overlooking and its really
irritating because i know how simple this should.

I'll just give it the full treatment :)

Remember a DOCTYPE to set the browser into standards mode. <HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>MENU</TITLE>
<SPRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript"> ^
This P shoud be a C.
Also, the language attribute is depreacted and the type attribute is
required. Change this to
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
HTML comments are not necessary in Javascript code.
if (document.images) {
Which currently used browsers don't have document.images?
Why do you test for it, if you don't use it? (even though you should
use it!)
function imgOn(imgName) {
if (document.images) {
document[imgName].src = eval(imgName + "on.src");
Bad code. It assumes the image is available as a property of the
document element. If you test for document.images, you might as well
use it.

You use eval to access a variable/object property. That is never
necessary, and should be avoided.

Change to:
document.images[imgName].src = window[imgName+"on"].src;

(Instead of a lot of global variables, you could have made just
one pointing to an object, and then stored the Image elements in it.
document[imgName].src = eval(imgName + "off.src");
As above.
//--> As for opening comments.
<TABLE BORDER="0" CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0" WIDTH="135">
Consider using CSS for controlling display. It is more powerful
than HTML attributes.
<TR><A href = "products.html" target="main"
onMouseOver = "imgOn('img1')" // this is the
line with the error!!!
onMouseOut = "imgOff('img1')"> // this one
too


Both errors probablt come from the "spript" tag. The functions are
simply not defined.

To find errors like this, you can use an HTML validator like
<URL:http://validator.w3.org/>. (It requires adding a DOCTYPE
declaration, but you should do that anyway).
