I used the Paint Shop Pro shareware from Jasc Software to create on/off/click text graphic gifs for the bar. When the mouse is off, the text color is white, and when the mouse moves over the graphic, or on, the gif switches to green. When clicked, it lights up. Using compression techniques built in the Paint Shop Pro software, I was able to keep the size of each gif to a few hundred bytes for quicker loading.
I hope this tip is helpful, and you can create something even better on your own Web page. Let me know how it goes.
|Add this <SCRIPT> tag to the top of the
<BODY> section of your page to define and preload the gifs and
describe the functions.
|Put the <TABLE> tags in the
<BODY> section of your page to layout the navbar.
