page rollover effect
I was just curious to know if anyone knows how to do a page rollover effect. I saw it on a website and that is was real nice but I have no clue how to do it. Any help is appreciated.

I think I know what you're talking about. The Powerpoint-esque page-transition effect things. Nobody likes them and they're generally thought of as being revolting pieces of unneccesary crap... Plus, programs like ``The Proxomitron`` which filter out HTML make it so that we don't have to see them.
Don't use them!

Alexzel, coding programs may offer SOME effects, but most good web designers could still work their magic with Notepad or SimpleText. They just use the coding programs because they're a little faster, but they still know what they're looking at when they view the source code.

Moreover, I would like to clarify a few points. I WAS NOT pointing out that buying Dreamweaver, frontpage and other web designing/dev. programs can turn you overnight into a web designer/developer guru. I was not stating that only people with these programs will be able to come-up with killer websites. It all boils down to both Creativity and Learning. Dreamweaver, Flash, Frontpage, Photoshop etc. can only help as far as building a site but the MAGIC of a site comes from the Spark of one's own creativity.

If a designer wants to code it himself in notepad, there's nothing wrong with that. If he wants to use web designing tools to make his work faster, there's nothing wrong with those either.
I was merely pointing out that web designers nowadays use these tools (Dreamweaver, Frontpage, Illustrator, etc. ) to have a fast pace in production time. BUT I NEVER MEANT that Designers do not employ actual coding anymore.
Yes, I am aware that designers do KNOW what their looking on when they view the source code. I NEVER said that they DON't know anything on the Source codes.

Designers do still employ hand coding but if the bulk of work is pilling-up then these programs come in handy.
I hope this clarifies everything.

All i can say is page rollovers are stupid and should never be used. Just like frames they slow page loading etc!

I've never used rollovers, and don't like them much either. You might just want to stick with a link, or single image -- anything to replace the rollover, because
a) it's easier on the browser (some older browsers might not support rollovers)
b) it's less images for the client to download, which means a faster page load for them
c) it's less load on the server and its network
