Move your mouse over an image to see the description. Works on IE 4+, Netscape 3+ and newer, Firefox, Mozilla, and Opera.

This example does several tricks. It preloads images for a faster button-switching experience. It switches images to make the buttons look pressed. It switches images to put an image-based description between the buttons. It changes the text in the box for a text-based description. It also writes a description to the window's statusbar.

If you want more ways to display text in the status bar that are a bit more decorative, check out the Great JavaScript Marquee Generator.
