    Well, image swaps on image-type inputs have worked in IE/Win32 since IE
4. Netscape 4 was the primary recalcitrant (since it didn't support
onmouseover for _any_ images), but rollovers of this type do work in
Netscape 6 (not sure off-hand about Opera, et al). And since, what, 85% or
so of current browsers support rollovers on the image-type input, hopefully
developers would no longer choose to implement a link-and-image combo --
thus requiring Javascript-based form submission -- simply to achieve an
image swap.

    Yes, wonky. That's the word for it. :)
