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}

Great work

David, no, but I have just checked it out and the effect is much the same. But they use javascript of course.

Hi Stu:

thanks for your work. You are an inspiration for me. this demo did not render fine in IE6.

Adrian, thanks for the feedback. Just a small error in the stylesheet but it is now fixed.

The opacity effect does not work in IE 7 or IE6 on my computer. Works fine for me in Firefox.
Is this demo supposed to work in IE or is it just limited to other browsers?

David, the opacity in IE6 uses MS filters so should work, and IE7 uses CSS3 opacity styling so that should work. It has been tested in IE6 and IE7 without any problems.

Dave F:-
I also have no opacity with this in IE7, although Firefox and Opera are fine.
IE Ver 7.0.5730.11

I have IE Ver 7.0.6000.16448 and Opacity works fine.

I also have no opacity with this in IE7, Ver 7.0.5730.11
Firefox, Opera and Safari for Windows are fine.

Clint, this is a 'feature' of your version. It looks like it was shipped without 'opacity'.

Hi Stu! All your working is cool! But the opacity effect does not work in IE6 on my computer. (((
(13.07.2007, 22:04)

temp, let me are running a standalone version of IE6 on the same PC as IE7. If I am right then IE6 thinks it is IE7 as far as the conditional comments are concerned and so does not see the separate IE6 only styling.

Stu, very much I regret! its able to work. Last time i run IE6 by wine (on linux) , now i boot windows, start IE and look on this effect: ITS COOL! Thanks for your job!
(14.07.2007, 21:02)

My updated version of IE7 now does not show opacity so I will restyle this to make it work in IE7.
(25.09.2007, 11:37)

Now 'hacked' for IE7.
(27.09.2007, 09:43)

Stu, I'm observing the way you do your menus (Demos, Menus, Layouts, etc) and am wondering how you're avoiding explorer from 'downloading' the hover background images on each event. It's pretty smooth on your site. Do you know what I can do to prevent this? ps - single image rollovers is not an option and I need the 'menu option' to have text and an underlying image which changes on mouseover (hover).

Any help is deeply deeply appreciated!!!!

I used your above style for my in progress kayaking website. See

Works fine in Firefox, however the hover text fails to appear in IE8.

Is there a hack for IE8?

This looks ideal but.. where's the script????
(17.03.2012, 15:43)

Apologies for last comment- I've found all the script/code. Thanks very much!
