Re: [xsl]Putting Mouseover Javascript Script in XSLT?

Hey there,

Your xsl and javascript look more or less accurate, so in the event
its not working I'd try some things:

1) Put xsl:attributes directly after the <img> tag, assuming that is
the tag you're adding attributes to.

2) Perform some simple debug measures by echo'ing the actual value of
/@url to make sure it is as expected.

3) Make sure the Javascript actually works. If you're using Firefox,
check the 'error console' to make extra certain your problem isn't
