you could do it this way but not using your array:

<a href="mystory.html" onmouseover="mystory.src='images/mystory_down.png';"

<img src="images/mystory_up.png" width="100" height="50" border="0" 
alt="Move your mouse over me" name="mystory" />

using your code it needs tweaking:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript">

mystory_on=new Image;

mystory_off=new Image;

note the ; at end

then the body code:

<a href="mystory.html" OnMouseOut="document.mystory.src=mystory_off.src";
     <img src="./images/mystory_up.png" name="mystory" width="100" 
height="50" border="1"></a>

added the document tag, and ; and also each image needs to be called 
something different. you had both the same name.
also you had a naming convention spelling mistake my_blog_on at top
and in the <a> tag you called it myblog_on. that is a leading cause of 
mistakes. use a single naming convention throughout your project and it 
need not happen again.

if you email me directly (haldor@z... I can send you the reworked file.

also I uploaded it to my site so you can check it out, along with 
comments in the html.
