I changed the site to use a javascript managed window slide but it relied on frame resizing, and I couldn't stand that. Now it still uses a frame, but it's an inline frame and the hiding is managed by javascript controls on the div tags manipulating the opacity. The biggest trick is trying to guess how it will work in other browsers, so YMMV. I did try to deal with that by handling both opacity and filter settings, and also putting in modifiers to change both the delay between increments of change and degrees of change so hopefully it will work on all browsers ever created. And, if it doesn't, well my site doesn't require javascript, and non-javascript enabled browsers can just use the in page standard html links since the link to use the javascript fading controls is itself reliant on javascript to display.

I can't decide whether to hate or love javascript.
