What is Page Transitions or Special Effects
As most of you know, Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape Navigator
4 introduced Dynamic HTML capabilities to the two major Browsers.
Dynamic HTML along with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) makes Animation
and Interactive input capabilities possible on your Web Site.
These advanced capabilities were defined by the WC3 (World Wide
Web) to ensure that they are compatible across all Browsers.
In addition to the Dynamic HTML capabilities supported by all conforming
Browsers, there are several additional Special Effects that are
only supported by Internet Explorer. Implementing these Special
Effects can be quick and easy provided you are aware that they may
not work for all visitors to your site.
The following Effects are available for Internet Explorer only.
This effect will fix the background in place as you scroll the
foreground. Enter GProperties="Fixed" into the Body tag.
Dynamic Scrolling: Internet Explorer only. This effect will automatically
scroll the screen to keep an Object in view. Call the script function
'object.ScrollintoView()' using the id of the object.
These effects will use a transition as you enter and exit a page.
Add the Meta Tags:
Duration = transition time in seconds.
Tansition = a transition effect from 0 through 23. Possible effects
