[thelist] Photo layout

I agree.  This looks fine.  You could load all of them in using JavaScript,
and then dynamically change the content of the text area to show what you

But I don't see the point.  It does what you need it to do here, and I am
sure the user won't mind waiting a short while as the image loads.

They'd have to wait anyway if you did it with JavaScript - unless you load
them all at once which would take a LONG time I am guessing.

Seems fine to me.

OK, so, what's wrong with what you have, besides the page flash and
reloading of pages for each image?

Maybe an array of image with text and label attached.

Code rips through array, pulls out "names" and lists them.

Hit a name and code then pull sout text and URL to image and sticks it in
predefined regions.

No flash

No page change.

Is that more of what your looking for?
