excellent. i think i can just rattle off what is going on : onclick establishes a string variable that is passed into the function, which was set up to take in a parameter, and the parameter is the string variable, and the function manipulates the properties associated with the parameter named object (getting info from it and placing that info in the divs).
sounds like what you said.
you know, i think if yesterday i had seen that excellent link you just sent me, that i could have figured most of it out by myself. as it was i thought i was about ready for the bughouse.
now i am going to study that Mozilla source site, and get more comfortable with what you did.
then it is on to your second code.
thank you sir. being that this is my first excursion into CodingForums.com, i will ask you a question as to the normal procedure here. there are 2 things i don't understand ; this official thanking procedure (when it is normal to use it), and is there a way to label my thread as solved ?
