sure - its easy if you want to make the same replacement in every link ie -
foo.html to foo.Jhtml.

all you need to do is access the links object, cycle through it and change
the href, either using pattern matching or whatever.
Depending upon platform etc you may need cross browser code.  below find
some code for latest gen browsers :

function changeLinks () {
var links = document.getElementsByTagname("A");
for (i=0; i<links.length; i++) {
	insert code to identify and replace strings here
