    Ever wondered what the view is like from the ISS?

    Note: You must use IE for this to work, Mozilla (and other Gecko based browsers) has an outstanding bug which prevents the effect on this page from working and Netscape 4 is basically a worthless browser for doing "cool" things.

    I've done some crazy stuff with SVG and DOM2, but naturally IE does not support any DOM2 or SVG without a plugin.

    With simple XHTML markup though, once again some crazy stuff with DOM2, but once again IE sucking prevents it from working it it.

    Roy, which bug # in BugZilla are you talking about? "Outstanding" bugs are few and far in between in the Gecko codebase, and I'd like to know which one you are referring to.

    The absolute coolest thing... I'd say my Dynamic Tables code
    Next coolest goes to my Tooltips - works in both IE5.0+ and Gekko browsers. It took way more effort to make them work in IE though since MS does not support the DOM2 Event Model...

    I have a hard time find the bug number but the reason it's unresolved is that I set it with a low priority when I reported it. Mine is the only script I know of experiencing the problem and frankly it's not that useful a script so I couldn't justify giving it more than a really low priority. I suspect it'll get fixed some day as a consequence of fixing some other bug or an update to some subsystem.

    i'm quite proud of this (also IE5 only, due to another unsolved bug in mozilla, namely events don't pass through clipped regions)

    Just a *bit* selfrighteous, don't you think?

    Wow, that's all really cool stuff. I like the sun going in and out of the clouds like that and that satelite view of the Earth ownz. The 'clean-looking' tables were cool too.

    You guys rule.
