the HTML4 spec does not have "name" as an attribute - exactly as the 
validator says:

IIRC, this was an error that was corrected in HTML4.01 ...yup:

you could position it absolutely, using left:0, top:0 and bottom:0 - 
that involves a restructuring of your source code - you currently have 
your page set out using tables. See http://glish.com/css for some 
table-less layouts.

On an accessibility note, the rollover link is not usable by 
non-javascript browsers. It may be a better idea to initially display 
the images as if you expect the audience's browsers to not use 
JavaScript, then write some JavaScript to restructure the HTML according 
to your intended design.
