  1. BG Carousel Links

    I found a fairly easy way to add optional links to the Dynamic Drive Script:

    Background Image Carousel

    First a demo:

    BG Carousel Links - Demo

    Now, how to:

    Using a text only editor like NotePad, add this highlighted style as shown to the bottom of the on page styles (modified from Step 1 on the demo page):

    Code:

  2. Version 5 Events

    In javascript there are basically two types of events that can be assigned to elements and objects. I classify them as version 4 events (those that were available in Netscape 4 and IE 4), and version 5 events, those that became available starting with IE 5 and presumably NS 5, but the earliest I'm aware of them in NS was NS 6 (I don't recall ever seeing a NS 5 browser).

  5. Sticky Tooltip script Unofficial Update

    The Sticky Tooltip script has some room for updating as I've outlined here:

    Sticky Tooltip script - not sticky

    and here:

    Sticky Tooltip script - no dock in IE 7- for image map

    In those threads I offer piecemeal solutions, the first of which above is the most problematic:
