No.

That happens in the browser. Browsers understand JavaScript, but not
Ruby.

There are Ruby tools that will generate the needed JavaScript, though.

In order for server-side code to roll images over, it would have to push
new
content. This isn’t how browsers normally work, although they can be
forced
to do it (using, for example a META timeout tag). But this seems to be
bending over backward to avoid the obvious JavaScript solution.

Mildly (more) OT, I wouldn’t use Javascript for this purpose. If you
need button highlights, use CSS and the :hover metaselector, give or
take wrapped in a bogus link while IE6 slowly phases out of existence
(FINALLY!)
