Alternate pictures / video

I am absolutely useless at Java but I recon this is the language needed.

alright.. where to start without getting confusing...

I store HTML documents in MySQL.. all fine.
Some of those HTML documents contain code to insert pictures or video like this one:
<img border="0" dynsrc="test2.wmv" start="mouseover" loop="0" width="208" height="98"></p>
<img border="0" src="Pictures/test.jpg" width="100" height="144" align="left">

What I need is a code which will automatically change the picture or video name to a 'default' picture or video, incase the original is missing.

If this isn't possible, I can write (with time!) a small program in PHP which will look for the string .gif" and will replace it with .gif" alt="nopicture.gif" but I will really prefer a clean way for doing this.. if its possible.[?]

Just done some test and in my surprise.. there is no way to display an alternate picture in HTML if the original is missing...

I believe your conclusion is incorrect.

Try this:

<img src='your_original_pic.jpg' onerror='this.src="your_replacement_pic.jpg"' alt='test'/>

I'm glad to be wrong :)

I'm using the notepad and MS frontpage.. just so you know, if you enter your line in MS Frontpage, the preview generate an error message..(works fine from the host server) so I would have been looking forever without your help!
