Just click the arrow button to rotate the set of images anti-clockwise. The images will wrap around to the begining again and the rotation will repeat. The image at the top in the black frame will enlarge and be shown in the center of the circle.

Works by using an overlay of links and the general sibling selector to control the size, position and opacity of the images.

IE will see an instant jump in the position of the images, but all other browsers will see these animate to their new positions. Hopefully IE10 will also see the animation when it is finally released.

IE7 and IE8 require the single javascript line in the body tag to force a refresh when using :active with the adjacent and general sibling selectors.
