Great site Stu thanks - have been visiting regularly the last few months and learnt a lot about CSS. Unfortunately not enough to be able to succesfully adapt this to display a caption for each image. Tried learning from the scroll gallery but 2 afternoons later I haven't quite cracked it .. any hints perhaps?

Chris, add the caption text inside each link and enclose it in a <b>...</b> tag. Make this hidden
.gallery li a b {
Then make it visible on :active/:focus
.gallery li a:active b, .gallery li a:focus b {
You may also want to position the large image higher so that the caption is under the image,
if so then adjust:
.gallery li a img {

I'm stumped. How are you making the background image disappear when the other images are displayed?

Of course, I would figure it out shortly after posting. You're using a wide border on the portrait images to hide the landscape background image. I love your CSS stuff...but I'm trying to overcome an issue. I want to display images without specifying whether they are portrait or landscape and I want the first image to display when someone comes to the page. From what I can see, your scripts will do one or the other, but not both. Suggestions? Thanks!

I decided to go with javascript for this particular task. But I'm definitely going to browse your site some more. You have some impressive examples. Thanks!

Stu, Many, many thanks for your help above. Works a treat - and even better, I understand how it works!

I use this album just a few days and it seems that my IE 6.0 does not show images on hover/mouseklick, there is just an empty box only the numberboxes are reacting correctly. Netscape and Firefox work fine.
Any idea?

Anonym, the usual reason for this not working in IE6 is that you are not using a standards compliant doctype.

I use <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "xxxx://">

Is this the reason of the problem? :hover works, but it is not the solution I want to use.
