Mouse movement while a button is pressed

P: n/a
<BODY onmousemove="return false;" oncontextmenu="return false;">
<IMG src="button.gif" onmouseover="this.src='down.gif'"
onmouseout="this.src='button.gif'">
</BODY>

This simple example shows where my problem is. It works fine when all
mouse buttons are released, and also if a button is pressed outside
the image. But if a button is pressed inside the picture it'll not
call onmouseout when the mouse is brought outside the picture. The
worst is it'll never call it, leaving the button stuck pressed forever
until mouse is moved over it again.
I just noticed if I place the picture inside an A tag it does work
fine then, but I don't need an A element here. Moreover, this fix
appears to work only for IE6, IE4 still doesn't work properly.
I'm asking if there's some other way to correct this. I'm also making
this compatible with Netscape 4.5, and the presence of an A element
changes the event.target.
The fact is I can't seem to disable the default drag'n drop of IE with
pictures. Netscape 4.5 appears to work perfectly. By placing
onmousemove="return false;" in BODY I aboid the cursor change in IE
but nothing else.

Thank you for any idea.

Try it with the onmousedown/onmouseup event handlers:

<IMG src="button"
onmousedown="src='down.gif'"
onmouseup="src='up.gif'"


Alternatively, you can throw in the onmouseover/out handlers as well...
