displaying blow-up image using only CSS

Hello,

In the link I listed there is a black swatch rectangle. I am trying to use only CSS and XHTML to display a larger image when the mouse rolls over the swatch image. The swatch image you can see is 225px, and I want to also let the user see a larger image either with a popup or with a rollover, but I can't use javascript. Or if you have another idea that would be cool too.

Thanks!

Did you change the HTML to use the CSS?

I'm using a shopping cart that supports CSS (aspdotnetstorefront). I don't think it supports your code. We aren't going to use a popup. Thank you for helping me out.

Good link though!

Thanks again,

Bob

I'm sure this is long since closed and gone, but I was able to get the code at the link working in AspDotNetStorefront.  Brilliant!  Thanks, Wod!
