As part of a school website's responsive rebuild, I wondered if it would feasible to remake this dartboard-esque "faculty web" menu and convert it from an image into pure CSS. Well, it *is* possible, but not without glitches - follow my journey from this to this (best viewed in Firefox, Opera and Chrome) below, and grab a more refined "take-away" freebie too.

Responsive web design (done well) allows users to achieve their goals on any internet accessible device, but what if they *want* to view the fixed width desktop version of a website, even on mobile?

The translate() method used inside the HTML-code below moves both a (super) div-containing-a-close-buttom (id: 'the_div') and an image (id: 'the_img') to the center of the window. The jquery-onload in the image ensures that the width of the div equals the width of the image. This is a requirement if we want to get the button (in the div) at the right position in front of

The common factor in all previous versions of the modal gallery is that alternative markup is offered for IE7/8 users to allow them to view image enlargements in a new browser window instead of the modal overlay. This is because those earlier versions of Internet Explorer do not support the CSS :target pseudo selector which triggers the modal overlay, but let's face it - having each image open in a new browser window doesn't do much for usability and it doesn't look very nice either. So, if you're
