tweaked hoverbox needs help
Hi, I've been tweaking with a gallery based on Nathan Smith's hoverbox example (http://host.sonspring.com/hoverbox/) and would really appreciate some help as there are a few things I can't figure out.
I'm trying to implement it with landscape and portrait thumbnails (for both the small and preview versions). I didn't want to use all same-dimension thumbnails so I had to specify a width and height on the <li>'s containing all the images. This works beautifully in Firefox but for some reason locks the preview images in place in IE after they've been hovered over once. If I simply remove the height and width specified under ".thumbnail_table li", then it works but the <li>'s are scrambled and shrunk down to the varying size of their content. An example can be seen here: http://avk.phpnet.us/digitalart2.htm with the style sheet: http://avk.phpnet.us/styles/mainstyle2.css [Side note: please don't use the stylesheet switcher on this page, it is not yet fully enabled.]
In another attempt to do this, I used a table instead of an unordered list (in order to freely control the height and widths of the <td>'s – like I couldn't the <li>'s because of the break in IE). I had two problems with this: one in IE and one in Firefox (and Opera). If you look at http://avk.phpnet.us/drawings2.html in IE, there is an excessive right margin on each of the table cells. No matter what, I cannot get rid of it. Now look at the same page in Firefox or Opera. If you use my stylesheet switcher (top left corner of the page) and cycle through the styles more than once (until they're all cached), you will notice how with each change in stylesheet the entire thumbnail table shifts down and to the right. I can't figure out why that's happening either. The main style sheet for that page can be found here: http://avk.phpnet.us/styles/mainstyle.css
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
