ImageReady Animated GIFs

This version utilizes frames so pop-up "display_window" stays in "focus" with thumbnail table. By replacing "main_image" in pop-up window, images do NOT have to be separate URL/html pages (which is a big objection to frame-set and image-map layouts for this type of slide-show).

<iFrame> An in-line or floating frame</iFrame> is a possible solution, but, like so many Web possibilities, browser support is flaky.

Frames (<FRAMESET></FRAMESET> or <iFRAME></iFRAME>), while specified in HTML4, remain controversial.

MACs mess this up — NN4 especially, which does not support <DIV> tags </DIV>. NN4 MACS won't even let Display Window (which is specified as "scrollbars=auto, resizable=yes") resize! We tried using our CSS ".box" class, but that was worse. A variation of JavaScript Unleashed's (Chap. 20 and 23) scripts on layers/divs also didn't solve the NN4 problem. Using deprecated <CENTER> tags </CENTER> did not help. Using depreciated ALIGN attribute of IMG SRC <img src="../move/cats.gif" ALIGN="CENTER" name="main_image" width="200" height="300" border="0"> also did not work. We even tried HSPACE and VSPACE attributes of IMG SRC. The CLEAR attribute of HTML <BR> tag (= left, right or all) and/or CSS IMG class (:left, right, both or none) does not fix NN4 MAC problem. We tried not to resort to using a table format, but it was either that or: "To hell with MACs and NN4!"
