    The filter attribute is a proprietary one, I believe. It allows you to do a bunch of graphical effects on the page/element. I believe it is IE6 only.

    Anywho, here are the options for the filter attribute:

    Alpha(Opacity=?, FinishOpacity=?, Style=?, StartX=?, StartY=?, FinishX=?, FinishY=?)

    BlendTrans(Duration=?)

    Blur(Add=?, Direction=?, Strength=?)

    Chroma(Color=?)

    DropShadow(Color=?, OffX=?, OffY=?, Positive=?)

    FlipH

    FlipV

    Glow(Color=?, Strength=?)

    Gray

    Invert

    Light

    Mask(Color=?)

    RevealTrans(Duration=?, Transition=?)

    Shadow(Color=?, Direction=?)

    Wave(Add=?, Freq=?, LightStrength=?, Phase=?, Strength=?)

    Xray


    Most of them should be self explanatory. Do note that they are very slow, very very very slow, if you use it for a full page. I'm on a P4 1.6 and using Blur makes it garbage slow.

    Flash files seem to get messed up with the Flip Operations. Not sure about image maps but since those are done in IE, it will prolly work correctly.

    Note that using Flip V also inverts your scrolling

    Anyways, If someone wants to crack something up with these, here it is. And if you can turn it into more than a cheap gimmick, I bow down.

    I’ve found them too clunky to be of any practical use. The alpha filter can be useful, but I would rather have proper support for PNG.

    dropshadow also causes havoc with Windows XP's cleartype--a shame because ClearType looks great. Allusion is pretty much right IMHO; you should stick to graphics instead of filters especially for browser compatility (the filters are for only IE).

    with mozilla, they have a replacement for alpha which is:

    Code:
    -moz-opacity:0.5;
    the entire css block wouldlook like:

    Code:
    .whatevah{-moz-opacity:0.5;}

    i'm not sure about the rest.

    What are the units for durations? Do you write [minicode]style: ...(duration=500ms)[/minicode]? I need samples!

    Oooh, this page look good http://www.webreference.com/js/column68/. Apparently you're supposed to add filter: progid : DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Opacity before your filter names.
    This has a list of parameters http://webdevelopers.hypermart.net/b...es/filters.htm.

    One the best quick references for filters with full code examples is this site:

    Well, I've used many of these in style sheets [usually blurs, filters, etc for hovers] mind you the opacity, etc is great for tables on images! In style sheets, I usually use:

    #namehere{
    filter:alpha(opacity=60, style=0);}

    or something along those lines

    I'd recommend not using them because...

    1) They do not work on other browsers

    2) The are very slow to render

    3) Some effect, like glow, are poorly over used, and, as such, appear unprofessional to most users

    4) Any decent paint program will do most of the image effects. If you want, an image with a shadow, just making the image 10x10 bigger and draw a shadow

    5) Using proprietary technologies only leads to the proliferation of them, which hurts standards all around

    just my thoughts, no offence to those who use them
