Special Effects

As most of you know, Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape
Navigator 4 introduced Dynamic HTML capabilities to the two
major Browsers. Dynamic HTML along with Cascading Style
Sheets (CSS) makes Animation and Interactive input
capabilities possible on your Web Site. These advanced
capabilities were defined by the WC3 (World Wide Web) to
ensure that they are compatible across all Browsers.

In addition to the Dynamic HTML capabilities supported by
all conforming Browsers, there are several additional
Special Effects that are only supported by Internet
Explorer. Implementing these Special Effects can be quick
and easy provided you are aware that they may not work for
all visitors to your site. The following Effects are
available for Internet Explorer only and may be viewed at:

Fixed Background: This effect will fix the background in
place as you scroll the foreground. Enter
GProperties="Fixed" into the Body tag.

Dynamic Scrolling: Internet Explorer only. This effect will
automatically scroll the screen to keep an Object in view.
Call the script function 'object.ScrollintoView()' using
the id of the object.

Transition Effects: These effects will use a transition as
you enter and exit a page. Add the Meta Tags:

Duration= transition time in seconds.
Tansition= a transition effect from 0 through 23. Possible
effects are:
0 box in
1 box out
2 circle in
3 circle out
4 wipe up
5 wipe down
