Text Rollovers: Final Thoughts - Doc JavaScript


A Final Word

In this column we discussed text rollovers, made possible by Internet Explorer 4.0 (and Navigator 4.0x) innovations. Such rollovers are already being used by the Web's most popular sites, including CNET. We showed you how to apply these effects to an entire page, and even to an entire site, without much pain and maintenance. Through the color-changing rollover example, we introduced many new features in Internet Explorer 4.0 and Navigator 4.0x. In this column you have learned:

  1. How to use onMouseOver and onMouseOut with plain text.
  2. How to change a link's color when the user points at it or removes the pointer from it.
  3. How to change a link's text when the user points at it or removes the pointer from it.
  4. How to generate these effects for an entire document.
  5. How to generate these effects for an entire site.
  6. How to provide workarounds for Netscape Navigator 4.0x.
