Doing it with style


Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

Hi Stu, love your site and learned all I know about css from it. I have a problem maybe you can assist. I need to show an image of a map and according to DB information draw spots on specific locations on the map.
The thing is, I am unable to position the spots in the place I want them to be.
I have a <div> section in it I placed the image (fixed size) and then I draw the spots, but using position:absolute but it didn't work, I also tried using relative, didn;t work also... any ideas are more than welcome.

Benny, the outer div will need a position:relative; for any inner 'spot' fixing using position:absolute;

Hi, we're from the staff. We will glad to use the second example of your image map for our menu.
We want to tell you this for asking you permission (it's not clear for us, if we have to ask permission only for the CSS method or if we want to copy the images etc.. )
Your site is very very great and You're a master in CSS ;)
But, please, let us know for your permission.
In the end, we tell you that we will use only the CSS method of your image map, and not the example images. Let us know !
Thanks. admin(at)

Very nice, although it doesn't appear to work well in Safari.

failure in opera:
- script 2
- Version 9.00, Plattform Win32, Windows XP
- does show scrollbars when rollover
failure in safari:
- script 1, 2
- you got to look at it, its looks weird
- all mangeld up, everything is thrown around
- max os x 10.2.8
- safari 1.0.3

When viewing your image maps using Safari on a Macintosh I have found that the background image can be displaced from its correct position depending on whether the mouse is within or outside of the image. Can anything be done to correct this?

I love this technique, even though it is completely borked in Safari. Anyone have any ideas why?

Viewed on a Mac OSX/Safari 2.0.4 - works fine. No problems. Also works fine with WinXP/IE7.

Is there a way prevent focus to a#snowwhite image if the area is actually smaller in size than snow_white.jpg?

Meaning, the area I'd like to rollover is actually smaller than snow_white.jpg, but the area given focus must be the size of the image/area. Could the code be manipulated in such a way that it acts more like a tooltip? Whereas the hotspot can be smaller than the rollover image.

Thanks for the great content Stu.
