    Please check this page: The pop up images (when you hover over the thumnails) are showing up HORRIBLY in IE (of course). I'm trying to fixed it so that the pop-up image is displayed close to the main image. I don't know what I'm doing. Help!

    I know you just want to get what you have to work.

    However, this isn't the standard "stupid CSS tricks" that are more code than common sense -- we're talking visual merchandising here.

    Check out something similar I did adapting a CSSplay example.

    First, this won't give you huge problems when trying to integrate it into a layout. Then, it allows both images and copy to work together. You can have basic body copy below the image (a mouse hover won't shove the text or layout further down), and then callouts for specific points of interest.

    Even it you get this to work, figure out why not how. I know many designers have absolutely no clue about writing effective copy -- it's time designers get a clue. Images and copy work best together.

    Graphic design isn't visual merchandising. Figuring out the code is in no way, shape or form going to help figure out the user psychology about what converts best. None of the stupid CSS trick scripts have a lick of sense about visual merchandising or the reason why behind the code.

    If this is what you want, okay. Don't limit yourself to what you can just about figure out what to do with markup. For all the "ooh" and "ahh," you might actually decrease sales. Really a proper designer should test a couple different approaches, and see what converts best.


    CSS Play Image Callouts You might find the original example more interesting and understandable, as I simplified and changed mine around a bit.

    Remove the top and left from the style sections, those properties are menu properties only. Then you need to add name= along with the id= in your images for the popup.
    <img src="b_listen.png" id="listen" name="listen"
    and so on. I just tested it on my desktop and it works fine [except for the dojo thing for which it keeps looking
    Hope this helps.
