Thanx. Have you see the examples i provided? I like the way the images are never off screen, even if you scroll or make your browser short. Any ideas?

Hi engineroom,

The examples you provided use a script from here:

http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/simpleimagetrail.shtml

It is implemented on monstertemplates.com like this ... HTML:

<IMG SRC="http://images.templatemonster.com/screenshots/13400/13414-m.jpg" border=0  border=1 style="border-color: 777777"             
   onmouseover="showtrail('http://images.templatemonster.com/screenshots/13400/13414-bswi.jpg ','Template 13414',430,419)"
   onmouseout="hidetrail()">

Peace and joy.  mvan
