Just a demonstrations of the little used 'clip' style to produce a vertical strip of each photograph including its border.

Click on any vertical strip to get the full photograph and if you are using IE then click off the photograph to collapse the image back to a vetical strip.

This also shows a bug in Firefox, which acts the same way as Opera (and probably Safari) in that the focus state is not held once the mouse button is released. Firefox should keep the full size image on screen until the mouse button is clicked again but it doesn't. However if you click on an image then drag the mouse a fraction then the image is kept active.

It also shows that IE6 gets it wrong with its clip style. If you use comma separators as per the specification then the clip doesn't work. But if you use space separators as is normal for padding, margin and borders then IE6 gets it right. Firefox doesn't mind either way.

I think that in this case the spec. is wrong and spaces should be used.
