    Replacement for Flash

    I'm not sure where to ask this. JavaScript seemed a good place to start... I'm looking for something to replace Flash for the movie on this page: http://www.get2thepoint.org/g2p/about_us.php and would appreciate any thoughts and ideas.

    Thanks G

    You are right. This can be easily achieved using mouse over event of javascript+css or jQuery+CSS. There are tons of examples and tutorials available.

    Hi,

    Maybe you could use an image map?

    Here's a great tutorial, as well as a demo and a second set of demos.

    Any good?

    Really?
    I still do.

    Out of interest then, how would you proceed here?
    Using CSS and/or JS, how would you get different information to appear when a user hovers over different parts of the same image?

    well actually I shouldn't have used 'nobody' but it's not been used as often how it used to be.

    well I would do CSS for position and hide image/info and on hover reveal them using jQuery/javascript.


    btw, just came across this website, not a similar example but just how a complex diagram can be done http://www.csstubemap.co.uk/index.html all done using CSS and bit of jquery and developer's haven't used any image.

    Thanks
