    Pop Up Images

    --jason--milburn---
      Occassionally I'll come across a site with thumbnails that, when you click on them, the larger image appear above the entire web-page - sometimes with the page itself fading slightly. Does anyone know how this is done?

          Yes, it uses JavaScript and is referred to as a "lightbox". There are free
          scripts available. I believe one of the best uses the name "Litebox" - you
          should be able to find it with a Google search.

          Hope that helps,

            Google "Lightbox2" or "Litebox" or hurry on over to
            http://www.projectseven.com/ and take a look at LightShowMagic.
