I can't be sure without seeing your input XML, but this bit doesn't look
quite right to me:
<xsl:attribute name="onmouseover"> doButtons('<xsl:value-of
select="/@url"/>') </xsl:attribute>

You're using the XPath '/@url', and if you're matching 'graphic', I
think '@url' is a more likely candidate...
