<img src="image.gif" alt="1000sourcecodes"
onmouseover="alert('Visit 1000sourcecodes!')" />

Example 2

In the following example we will add an image that should act as a link button on a web page. We will then add an onMouseOver event and an onMouseOut event that will run two JavaScript functions that will change between two images:

<script type="text/javascript">
function mouseOver()
function mouseOut()
<a href="" target="_blank" onmouseover="mouseOver()"
<img border="0" alt="Visit 1000sourcecodes!" src="b_pink.gif" id="b1" /></a>
