We'll show you how to dynamically print positioned elements while the page is loading, and how to overcome various undocumented bugs. We'll also explain the theory of pop-out elements. Our pop-out elements work on Navigator 4.0x and Internet Explorer 4.0x. The script also accounts for older browsers, so it is backward compatible. So we've got a cross-browser, backward-compatible script. Wow! You'll learn:

  1. How to define a pop-out element as an instance of an object.
  2. How to define and use a pop-out element's properties.
  3. How to position a pop-out element's tab.
  4. How to position a pop-out element's box.
  5. How to toggle a pop-out element's visibility status.
