Well, not fully. How do you handle backgrounds with multiple 
colors, ie a background image ? Head over to <http://www.l-c-
n.com/lcn/index.html>, and mouse over the "portfolio" gif file to 
see what I mean. (page is in Japanese, but that shouldn't affect 
the display of the problem in NN4 or would it ?).

But it is a very nice trick, anyway. Thanks for sharing it.
