What is the benfit of having the picture in the first place? A highlight
provides a cue (in this case visual only) as to what is the active part of
the page. Some people cannot use a mouse effectively, but still benefit from
the visual cue.

  Charles, 
  
  i am a litel confused here.  Our mouseover movements don't trigger any
  other actions, e.g. pop-up windows, etc.  they just draw a picture to be
  associated with the link.  what would be the benefit of having a keyboard
  shortcut to doing this?  can you help clear this up for me so I understand
  this better.  Thanks.
