Looks and performs great. Is it just me or is DD giving in to the pink revolution? I've seen more pink images than ever in the CSS gallery.

Dear Dynamic Drive,
nice technique.

I had problems when i entered the CSS code into INCLUDE FILE, and trying to use it for multiple pages.
just the first link from the top is working. all other are disable.

Also, is it possible to use a STAY / CURRENT button, as your new script: , ie: <li id="current"> "Sliding Doors" technique.

Thanks for advance
