No it isn't.

This is handled much more easily by doing this:

<a href="sword.gif" onclick="annoyingPopup();"><img 
src="thumb_sword.gif" alt="..."/></a>

The annoyingPopup() function can then just read the value of the href 
attribute so it knows what content to load in the window.  To make that 
even better, the function could be added as a listener of the click 
event dynamically, instead of using the onclick attribute.
