    Hi,

    Visit http://espn.go.com - as you can see, right there on their mainpage they have little image tabs that you can scroll through instantly...how is this achieved? Has anyone written a script for it? I'd love to implement it into my site...it even works in Netscape!

    Welcome to the world of DHTML, Chris!

    What you see on ESPN's site is a pretty advanced example of what can be accomplished with JavaScript and CSS in today's browsers. Unfortunately, explaining how to reproduce it on your own site is more suited to a tutorial article than a forum post.

    If you're interested in learning about DHTML, I highly recommend the book "Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference" from O'Reilly.

    Kevin,

    Yikes, I was afraid that might be the case. Any chance of a SitePoint tutorial on the subject someday?

    WebmasterBase.com already has an Intro to DHTML article, but it's really not enough to give you more than an idea of what DHTML is.

    I'd definitely enjoy writing an article series on this stuff, but my hands are unfortunately quite full at the moment with the PHP/MySQL series (first article this week!).

    Of course...wasn't referring to anytime soon!

    I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to your databasing article series...turns out my host supports one MySQL database as well as PHP...so I'll be able to follow along and see what happens!

    What will it teach us? How to database our site, IE: store information in databases, and use templates much like we use SSI to update many things at once?
