Re: [vox] [vox-tech] webpage question

This is uncharted territory for me, but if you can do it with
JavaScript then I think it will involve using Layer objects, 
which in turn have the ability to work with background
images.  Perhaps you can set up a timer handler that will, at
each timer event, do one of the following:

(a) change the background image's clipping rectangle, or
(b) change which layer is visible.



Regarding timer stuff, note the setTimeout method of the window object.

Let me know if you get it to work.  :-)
