You are correct.  I have found the JS that the dLink references.
Here it is if there are any JS experts out there who want to take a gander.

// expandItems() calls a javascript that replaces one string of //
// text with another on mouseover (IE only)                     //
function expandItems() {
<script language="JavaScript"><!--
var no=0;

function mover(object,text) {
eval(object + '.innerText = text');

function mout(object,text) {
eval(object + '.innerText = text');

function dLink(href,text,txet) {
document.write('<a href="'+href+'"
onMouseOver="mover(\'link'+no+'\',\''+text+'\')" id="link'+no+'"

        Thanks again.

That function has nothing to do with mouseovers. Maybe the dLink()
function does, but this is all user functions, so there's no telling
what they do. Mouseovers have nothing to do with PHP. PHP can simply
echo the javascript code required to create the mouseover effect.
