it is relatively easy to implement, nothing magic. But it is certainly nice
to have in practice.

I would suggest that you have a look at the two examples and the tests for
the following days. Then as you get more experienced, you can help me with
the testing infrastructure.

trust me, it is quite easy.
When you say JQuery, do you mean <http://www.jquery.com/>? If so, it

I watched some of the examples here: <http://

I will post some examples over the next days.

there is a jquery book, have a look at their site.

Yes it does - I'm sold :) I have a few other things to get out of

that's great, if you need help just ask!
