Documentation Spritely is a simple plugin with only two key methods, sprite() and pan() both of which simply animate the background-image css property of an element. The difference between the two is that a 'sprite' image contains two or more 'frames' of animation, whereas a 'pan' image contains a continuous image which pans left or right and then repeats.

Vertical Centering in CSS Yuhu's Definitive Solution with Unknown Height Though there is a CSS property vertical-align, it doesn't work like attribute valign in HTML tables.

Managing Sessions and State with PHP by Brian Fioca 05/18/2006 MVC Frameworks, such as WASP, provide a solid jumping-off point for entry-level programmers to produce strong, well-formed code. The framework simplifies such things as creating a page (using a kind of page object) and creating or searching for data (using database table objects).
