thanks for the reply. so you're saying that flash/java could be used.. hmmm
but flash would have to be loaded on the user/client system/browser.. for
that matter, so would java..

do both these approaches allow a user to 'interact' with the
app/matrix/image, so i can determine where the user is pointing/clicking
within the 'image of dots'?

When I worked in a perception laboratory, I used Flash to publish web
versions of our experiments (for demonstration purposes). You could do
it with Javascript, but I think using Flash or Java would present much
fewer headaches, especially in trying to control browser differences
(which, if you are actually doing an experiment, would be important to
avoid problems with external validity).
