    JavaScript. Java is too bulky, CSS I don't think can do it for images, and Flash is unnecessary.

    java & flash: too bulky for the effect, but definitely possible
    javascript: The standard and best way.
    css: A bit more complex, but basically, it isn't possible. You can do it with hyperlinks with the hover pseudoclass:
    Code:
    a:link {  background-image: url(nohilite.jpg); }
    a:hover {  background-image: url(hilite.jpg);  }
    (untested).
    I don't think there are any such pseudoclasses for other elements like <td>.

    Wow, see that's why a newbie like me is inspired to post these polls, I didn't even know there was a difference between Java and JavaScript. Oh boy . . .

    Maybe a mod can help me out and add JavaScript to the options.

    Here's the link to a pretty heavy article that shows you how to make rollovers with two images via CSS.
