Using :hover is the correct thing to do in CSS. Unfortunately, IE only
recognises the :hover when it is associated with a link. Firefox,
Opera, Konqueror and other good-citizen browsers *do* recognise :hover
when it is associated with something other than a link, but it doesn't
really help if your viewers are using IE.
So, to get back to the original question, how do you want the images to
"light up"? Are you replacing the image with another, brighter image,
or do you want some other effect? Is the image part of a link, or not?
If it is part of a link, no worries, you can use the :hover CSS. But in
order to distinguish individual images from each other, each link will
need to have a unique ID, or be inside something with a unique ID.
