CSS DEMOSMapping the British Isles & Ireland

Date : 20th April 2006

For all modern browsers


Back to the simple stuff.

This is a simple method of adding interest to a map of the British Isles & Ireland.

Hover the mouse over the black squares to see a pop-up information box about the particular place of interest. The pop-up box is styled to look as though an arrow is pointing from the place of interest to the photograph and descriptive text.

This works in IE5.5, IE6, IE7, Firefox, Opera etc.

Hacks have been added to make it work in IE5.5 for people browsing using the standalone version. Strictly speaking IE5.5 should have it's own CSS loaded using a conditional comment.
