    mouseover coding problems

    I have been building my photography website using Yahoo sitebuilder...I realize this is probably extremely lame to those who are experts at web design but I know very, very little. I've been able to do everything I want to do so far except for how the photos are displayed. What I want are thumbnails where you mouseover and the larger picture pops up. I found some code that allows me to do that but I cannot integrate in properly to work with the existing code. See below link:

    What I want is for the thumbnail picture in the white space at the bottom to be on top of the actual background image. It seems like this is just a matter of positioning it correctly on the page but I am stumped. Any help on this is greatly appreciated as it is the last thing holding me up. Thanks.

    Hello tiafn2,

    Maybe you can use this as an example to follow. View the source to see how it's done.

    What you're trying to build is called a disjointed rollover. If you google that term there are a lot more examples out there.

    I think SiteBuilder is not doing a very good job for you. If you run your code through the validator, see the links about validating in my sig below, you can see there are a few errors.

    Also look at the link in my sig about DocTypes.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
