Sounds like you want to use frames, not tables. Have 2 frames with the first one being the links, and the target of those links being the second frame. I can post some code if you need it.

You may find a suitable link at: http://www.geocities.com/yaegerii
it's a tiny links page that I'm fiddling around with. I haven't much javascript experience, but there are plenty of related links there. Try the "Other Stuff" and "Free Code" sections first.

Yes, you can download images. Just right click on the image, and hit save images as, and a save dialog box pops up. With that said, if the image is inside of an applett or inside flash or something like that, then you can't download the image. It has to be just a regular image (gif, jpg, bmp).
As for your mouseover events, you have to look at your code. I can't really say why it isn't working without seeing your javascript. Post your script and I will see if I can tell you what is wrong with it. Netscape and IE (internet explorer) behave differently sometimes (well really a lot of times), so it is probably something there.
As for your last question, yes you can use dhtml and js among both browsers. They are implemented differently sometimes, but you can use them. If you are using the blink tag, then that tag does not work in IE but it does work in Netscape. Conversly, SCROLL works in IE but not Netscape. However I would recommend against using either of those because after 10 seconds, they both get annoying as hell.
Check out www.dhtml.com or www.javascript.com for more differences and lots of great articles.

First question about the onClick method. The body tag doesn't have an onClick method. Since the body is the whole page, it wouldn't make sense that you can click anywhere in the page and have all the text getBig. You would need the onClick function to appear in a DIV tag or FONT tag or something like that.
Second question about showing hyperlinks without underlines. Yes this is possible. You use style sheets in order to do this. You can use the inline style which you would write like this:
<a href="#" style="text-decoration:none">This link is not underlined</a>
Or you can set it up as a separate page if you want this to be consistent throughout your site, or at the top of the page if this is consistent on this page only. Go to www.webreference.com and look up text-decoration or CSS to get more info and more examples.
