You can use hook_node_api when op=view to replace the link with the markup you want. Or you can output a text link and use CSS.

a.forward-page {
display: block;
width: 32px;
height: 32px;
background: url('/path/to/myImage.png') bottom;
text-indent: -99999px;
}

Changing to feature request to make this more easily changed via a theme function.

> to replace the link with the markup you want

Isn't already a full HTML element by then?

At any rate, it was in the block that I wanted this, where there no means of alteration and the only theme call is to theme_image().

In D7, you can use hook_block_view_alter. In D6, I believe you are stuck with the CSS approach.
