The site linked here: http://summerinnbnb.com/haines.php -- a modification of the former example-- is closer to what I'm after, but I'd like to be able to format the caption text, which isn't possible here given that the script is pulling the text from the "title" attribute.
In essence, I'd like to create a gallery without resorting to frames, and with minimal scripting-- and maximum CSS-efficiency-- that displays full-size images by clicking the thumbs-- i.e. not via rollover-- and that displays a corresponding caption on the "stage" under the large image. I would imagine the simple script in the above examples could be modified to allow for a formatted caption, but my JS knowledge is minimal at best.
Thanks much for any help here.
