Well, your javascript-fu is bit better than mine...but are you just
coloring in table elements as big pixels?  I wonder if it would work
if it had to use images...I'm a little wary of doing a whole
pixel-painting-with-table elements for title work, though maybe I'm
just old fashioned like that.

It's the CSS I'm more slow on, come to think of it.  Sometimes I
realize I'm still mentally stuck on those dark ages where everything
kind of had to work on Netscape 4.7 as well....

Manuel, let us know if this perks your interest.
