Weird image-notes bug -- framing offset Answered

A user posted a Question about how to have the image notes box show a different image than what it outlined on the original picture.  His question was inspired by one of the Lego iPod docks, which does indeed appear to have this effect on all of its image notes.

The effect isn't actually to show a different image.  Rather what appears to be happening is that when the image note is hovered over, a piece of the picture offset vertically (about 1.5 cm) below the box is displayed in place.  It's almost as though the JavaScript that does the work has a positioning offset, for each of the image notes in this I'ble.

Some differences in OS:  Using Firefox 3.6.3, I see the effect with MacOSX 10.5.8, but NachoMahma does not see it with Windows XP.


.  Either they fixed it or it's browser/OS-specific - I just went to the iPod dock link you provided and didn't see the effect.
.  WinXP Pro SP3, FF 3.6.3

FF 3.6.3 on MacOSX 10.5.8 does show the effect.  Interesting.

.  Steve Jobs is The Antichrist!  heehee
.  Just checked again and no problems. I'll keep my eyes open and report if I see it.

How can you be so sure?  There seem to be an awful lot of candidates for that post.

.  Jan Brewer? Sarah Palin? Hillary Clinton? Egads! The Antichrist is a she! <snicker>

FF 3.6.3 under Ubuntu 10.04 doesn't seem to have this bug.

This has been happening for at least a month now.

I don't mind, I kind of like it!
