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}

Roo, can you email me the url of your page. I may be able to spot the problem. It will have to be tomorrow though as it's midnight here and I'm off to bed after a 14 hour working day.

Oooh, and I just copied the validation tags from this page (should have thought of that before, sleepy) but to no avail.

Ah-ha, it works in IE7 (gosh it's ugly) beta 2!!

Although the CSS layer I'm using is still shifted towards the top of the browser window, which isn't your concern I suppose :)

And I've just fixed that, still no joy in IE6 though.

Erm.. Sleep tight.

great work on you css code.
I have been trying to do something similar but I have been unable to get my medium sized images to hover over the smaller ones. Even when I copy your code they a still under half the smaller pictures

Congratulations to photo gallery Mk 3.
I've edited this gallery in such a way that an additional descriptive text is displayed immediately right of the big image. I think this enhancement makes it more useable.
I want to use it for my private art-gallery and therefore i ask for your permission to do so. If you can give the permission I will donate, a back-link to your site is already present. Please have a peek and visit my (at this stage unofficial and hidden) gallery at ""
Recent art-homepage is at "".
I'm a evening artist and hope to attract the eyes of future visitors with this gallery.
best regards
Wolfgang Holba
ps: There are 2 small mistakes in your files:
1)In lightbox3.css you define "font-family:verdana, arail, sans-serif;" which should be " verdana, ARIAL, sans-serif;". 2)At bottom of the HTML-file you noted "<div class="clear">&nbsp;</div>" , but there is no declaration in any of the css-files...
pps: If you could give me a hint, how i'm able to center the small images in ie I would be deeply grateful.

Wolfgang, you have my permission.
The centering of the small images in ie is all down to the values of width and padding in the
.menu ul li:hover ul li style.
decrease the width and increase the padding.
It may require a hack to serve this up to ie as it may affect other browsers and also the large popup image.

Thanks! The CSS in your gallery helped me to overcome a problem I was having with z-index for hovered elements in IE.

Ultimately, it inspired a more robust, 3rd version of my "Photo-caption Zoom" (PZ3).

Stu:- it took me a little while to figure out the answer to this problem and I am glad that it helped you with your photo-caption-zoom project.

I'm going to use this type of gallery for my personal web site. Your works are excellent!
Your work will be credited, of course!

This gallery is great! A nice addition would be a link/arrow at the bottom of the big picture frame to the next big picture so you could scan all big pictures without going back to the small images. How/where could that be done?
