Once upon a time Arnaud Le Hors shaped the electrons to say...

Netscape.

JavaScript IMG rollovers basically require naming the image so the script
can call it.  Using the Image array is a bitch because NS broke it and
now 2, 3, and 4 Navigator act differently!  

See <URL:http://www.livingston.com/> for an example of the code in use.

All of Netscapes JS documentation shows NAME being used on FORM, IMG, etc -
just about any element.  And a great many script *rely* on it.

I don't believe JS recognizes ID either.  But that's moot - IMG doesn't
allow either in the 4.0 draft of 7/8/97.

I agree, it should be added if we're going to add any script support.
