    You can do this, if you turn your text into a dummy link. p tags don't
    accept mouseover commands, but a tags do. So you could use;

    <a href="javascript:;" onMouseOver="swapImage etc etc">My Text</a>

    The danger with this method is that the text appears like a link to
    screenreaders, or if the user is using a keyboard for navigation. In
    other words, you are causing an accessibility problem, so it is
    probably not to be recommended.

    Well thanks for that Paul.
    Something like that may work fine for me for now because in this case, I do
    in fact want the text to be actual links.
    I'll try this.

    In that case, it should work perfectly.
    Start by highlighting your text, then type your link into the link box
    on the property inspector. After that, you should find that you are
    able to apply a swap image behavior.
