Re: [css-d] layers and slideshows

Sent by Mark Howells on 30 January 2002 12:12


That's a bit scary - I just posted code for a slideshow like this to the 
Evolt mailing list (though my code is automated for timed changes using 
Javascript and doesn't deal with positioning).

Knock yourselves out. If anyone uses this code for a commercial site, I 
wouldn't say no to a small offering via Paypal [EMAIL-REMOVED]). This is 
entirely up to you, though.
