I need to be graphic.

I am looking for a relatively novel way to display a list and from that list select and display the contents of the choice.
It's a very dry and droll topic and I would like to add some wow factor. The list is even duller.:( Literature references on a professional topic.

I've checked out the standard issues like references as displayed by Microsoft and vertical menus with images included. Pizzazz would be good.

Hi Peter,

I think I've got something very cool for you, but I first want
to know if I understand your question correctly.

- Is the list a text list?
- Would you like a popup graphic to appear when you hover over the text?
- Is the literature reference very long?

Hello Boomer,

Thanks for looking at this for me.

-The list is a mix of PDF and text items ( MS Word). They're all in Thai.
-I think a popup may be OK if it can be held for an extended period and scrolled or expanded into the original form
-Each item in the list is typically one or two pages.
-The titles are reasonably short. (say 30 characters average max)
-The list is dynamic. At this point maybe 45 items. As far as its being dynamic I would be happy to review the additions in batch periodically and have the "new references" say at the end of the list or some other place.

Once again a thank you.

Here's something I did fo you Peter.

I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for, but I think it's
pretty cool. The popups can be larger if you like, and you
can also have text within them.

Hello Boomer,

That's pretty amazing stuff isn't it?

I must say that I'm very grateful that you tailored it in this form for me as I can easily see ways of utilising {not a sp error from where I come from :)}it for the application I have.

I will work with it over the next little while and will keep you posted on outcomes and possibly ply you with questions?

Have a pleasant and enjoyable Christmas Boomer and take care. (Alcohol detox info available 24/7: H2O and acetominophen prophylaxis!)

Simply a side effect. Most sophisticated treatments have their downside :)

Boomer,

Your suggestion of the snap shots works well. The displayed previews are clear and dynamic. The fine tuning is easy and it's needed. The other spin off effect is that the small line of ad at the bottom of the snap shot, displays Synthasite as the number one web-site creator.

Thank you for that.
