[sorry for the annoyingly long URL]

this primitive mouseover effect i was trying to create works in Safari 1.0 v.85 and Netscape 7.02 [Mac], but does not work in any other browser i have tried so far [Opera 6.02 & IE5 for Mac, for instance]. is there a way to alter the stylesheet so that it conforms to more browsers? anybody care to look at it in any others? thanks.

browser compatibility woes

The only thing I can see, is that technically you shouldn't have an A tag direct in the body (well, with strict doctypes anyway... I know you're not using one), try enclosing it in a P.

It's the normal way of doing mouseovers, no idea why it's not working...

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

to add insult to injury

i just got in to work, took a look at the URL in IE6/PC, and wouldn't you know it: the thumbnails are completely invisible.

i am so looking forward to all of us, myself included, learning how to be more standards-based.

i guess i should get one of those PC-simulators for checking this stuff out at home...
