Thanks, Yeah that's what I figured, something that occurs on the backend. If you notice, when you hover over it, it changes what's in the URL, so perhaps it's simpler, maybe it just calls different CSS stylesheets based on what is on the URL...who knows....

FYI ... screen readers don't see anything that's inside JS at all.
Thanks for the compliments on the butterfly theme. I actually did that one for my son. It's his favorite one.
Yeah, I can post the codes for the pagination for you tomorrow some time. Is this for the MyISAM db? If so, it'll work just fine because it's what I'm using the codes in as well.
[EDIT]= sorry, I didn't answer this question ...
No, I don't use anything like that at all. I write all of my code myself by hand one line at a time. I use editPad. It's the only thing I've ever used.
Well I like the color blue, that's probably why I liked the butterfly theme, but the butterfly looks nice too...
Feel free to provide the pagination OR breadcrumbs code whenever you have time. For me, I would probably use a pagination script that works with my mySQL DB, and for the breadcrumbs, I'm still trying to figure out how it all works, still reading that link you sent me.
I'm really amazed at how many people handcode their web designs. Makes me feel like I am cheating with Dreamweaver.
Don't get me wrong, I do a ton of hand coding, but I use DW to create the quick and dirty layout so I can visually see how I am going to lay out my site, then I go in with the PHP and start hacking away the HTML and mixing it in with PHP. It's always worked well for me, but you know what, I am finding that the more advanced PHP programmers just simply don't use any fancy tool at all...
I haven't heard of editPad, but I have heard of Notepad++, I hear that's pretty popular too....
Funny, back in 2000 when I started coding, UltraEdit was "the" tool to use, and for whatever reason, it seems to have dropped off the map, but I love using it...
EDIT: BTW, I've had the same AOL account for 15 years!!!
