Yeah i understand that, i agree totally. One member said create a scrolling block with CSS for users that have JS disabled. I said that wouldn't be ideal. I only want to serve up large quanitites of images to users that have JS enabled. If i server up large quantities when JS isn't enabled then

The non-js version could also hold all the images and the css overflow property could be used to force a little scroll bar to scroll through them, almost re-creating the effect your going for. JS would step in to improve... What your saying is fine too. Joseph R. B. Taylor /Designer /

I considered the using CSS to recreate the effect for users without Javascript enabled, but if i use CSS that will mean that users without CSS will get a bunch of images in a list, which may not be relevant to them. Im assuming (only assuming) that the majority of visitors that will visit the site

Hi James, I think Joe's suggestion is what you are looking for. To be a little more explicit, use a nested div where the outermost div is just wide enough to hold 3 images. This will be your viewport. The inner div will hold all of the images: style .viewport { width: 300px; /* wide

An example? Text-only browsers. No visual styles! However, a list of images is exactly what you're serving to the visitor, right? Ugly, yes. Semantically correct? Quite. Furthermore, I'm willing to bet that plenty of text-only users frequently encounter lists of images and wouldn't be

I'll chime in to mention that people who intentionally turn off CSS, or use their own specific styles to override defaults represent a TINY percentage of users. TINY. For me personally, testing without CSS is a mute point since I spend a fair amount of time creating a nice naked document to
