http://www.charlesnypels.nl/authoring.html I stumbled on this site tonight, and I noticed how the background changes automatically, it's very subtle. I think this could be developed to be very interesting. Does anyone have any idea what this site is using to do this? If so are there any tutorials, or information? Thanks Guys!

There's a javascript timer that changes the RGB of the background every 400ms and its a free script that the author has downloaded from someone else.

This is found inside the script

Not bad... (shame about the rollovers) but I don't think it's subtle enough,
Tank Design (http://www.tankdesign.com) do a similar thing with gradients, but they use Flash, much more subtle though.

Yeah... I'm not a fan of the javascript full background color change or the javascript fade in and out of pages...

And making the text of the links that much bigger on rollover? Wow... :eek:
