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}

John R, glad you are enjoying yourself. The he\ight:0; is an Internet Explorer hack.
* html (target IE only) #info a {
height:112px; (for all versions of IE to correct the faulty box model in IE5.01 and IE5.5)
he\ight:0; (for IE6 only to feed the correct value. IE5.01 and IE5.5 will ignore this)

Hope this clarifies the hack.

Re. The Mantis Image Map.

I'd like to at some point use this as a skeleton for a kind of "Interactive Map".

Is this OK. I'd give you proper credit

Hi Stu,

I would like to get permission to use your Mantis map for a website I am creating. Obviously I am going to change the labels / background pic of the Praying Mantis. I love this design and I'd be grateful if you would allow me to make use of it.

Btw, what part of Bristol are you from? I am from Thornbury... but now live in Beijing.

Stuart, you have my permission to use this menu on your web site (a mention in the style sheet would be nice ;o)
My childhood was spent in Knowle West.... yes I know.... but I now live in K. e. y. n. s. h. a. m. for all of you who remember Radio Luxembourg and Horrace Bachelor.

John B:-

I would like to use your image map menu on my website. I would like to use the design as-is (including your mantis critter temporarily)except for the menu titles.

I would be happy to include credit lines in the css file, and would also provide acknowledgment somewhere on the site. If there's something specific you'd like, let me know.

Your site is among the most imaginative ones I've visited concerning use of CSS. I enjoy browsing the site just to see what you've come up with.

John B, you have permission to copy the menu 'as is'. I would ask that you place a credit in the CSS.
You may have a problem though in changing the list titles as these include parts of the mantis image.

Greetings Stu,

I was pointed to your site for this mapping illustation the other day from the other day.

Since then I have been trying to adapt your code for a page I'm working on...but am not being so very successful.

I would be willing to reimburse you for your time if you would be so kind as to look at the code I have and then let me know what I am doing wrong.

Thank you for your time in adavace--Lorena
