Hi all,

Just been on my online banking and was checking out their new site design, right clicked and viewed one of the curved boxes on the page to see what kind of method they were using and was presented with a whole host of images that were entitled sprites?

the link to the images is link (http://nationwide.co.uk/homepages/_images/hp-sprites.gif)

i was just wondering how these work?
