Other browsers will degrade gracefully. Example 1 The first popeye-box uses the standard options: it floats to the left and opens to the right, its navigation and caption show on mouseover. By placing the navigation inside the stage area (where the image is displayed), we can get it to hover above the image. No need to read this, just dummy text ;-) Vivamus ut nisi id libero interdum pretium. View HTML code used in this example Example 2 The second popeye-box has the following user-defined options: direction: 'left' - open to the left. caption: false - do not display captions (even though the images have alt tags with text). navigation: 'permanent' - the navigation is always visible. The navigation stays fixed to the right of the image. View HTML code used in this example Donate
