    switch multiple backgrounds on mouseover

    Hey all,

    As a JS rookie I've managed to toggle specific backgrounds on multiple mouseovers. The code below does exactly what I want, but I'm not quite satisfied with the way it's done.

    The definite webpage will contain a lot of projectboxes, and for each project I need to add two functions in my script. Not very efficient. I'm looking for a single function which works in the same way, preferably making use of an array where I can add new projectimages. Any help on this would be greatly apprciated!

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <title>Switch backgrounds on mouseover</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    .projectbox {
    margin-right: 15px;
    float: left;
    }
    
    .imgbox {
    width: 265px;
    height: 100px;
    display: block;
    }
    
    .imgbox a.img1_off {
    background: url(http://www.boomboxfestival.nl/test3/dummy1_off.jpg) no-repeat;	
    }
    
    .imgbox a.img1_on {
    background: url(http://www.boomboxfestival.nl/test3/dummy1_on.jpg) no-repeat;	
    }
    
    .imgbox a.img2_off {
