Using the F.a.S.T method to produce an image enlarger with CSS3 enhancements.

The above image enlarger does not need each image size specified, and uses the same image for the thumbnails as for the large image. The CSS automatically chooses the correct size to display for the image to fit within the 124px square thumbnail area and also the 416px square large image area.

Browsers that suport CSS3 transitions will see the large image fade in/out when hovering the thumbnails.

Tested and working in IE6, IE7, IE7 emulation, IE8, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC), Chrome, Flock, SeaMonkey, Avant and Maxthon.
