event trigger and Netscape

Hi,

I'm designing a web page using JavaScript. When I use Netscape Communicator 4.7 to test the page, it seems that Netscape ignores the event triggers. For example:

<img src="example.gif" width="100" height="30" border="0" alt="" onmouseover="dosomething()" onmouseout="dosomethingelse()">

Netscape would show the picture, but nothing would happen if the mouse scrolls over or out of the picture. This might be caused by the browsers settings, I don't now.


Another problems is, dealing more with JavaScript, that the onload event trigger seemed not to work probably. I wanted to give a variable a value by the moment the page
is loaded:

<html>
<head> 
 <title>Onload</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
function init()
{infos="Hello there"}    
function writeit()
{document.writeln(infos)}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<form>
<input type="button" value="clickme" name="button1" onclick="writeit()">
</form>
</body>
</html>

By clicking the button, a text should appear on the screen reading "Hello there", however, the following error accurs: 'infos' is undefined

Hopefully someone can help me
