Sounds like you are describing Thickbox. This is not a new window, it all happens in the same browser window.

Is that how this would have been done Dom?


Click on one of the tabs, then click on the site example to see a zoomed version. I mean that part that appears once you click the image of the site.

Yes, it's thickbox or a similar app, there's a few out there, greybox etc.
Funny yo should pull up that website. I have alot of respect for Headscape and their involvement in the web dev community. Love the boagworld podcast

Yeah I listen to the podcast have done for ages, very good.

They're doing some of the best stuff out there in my opinion, when it comes to accessible CSS type sites anyway.

what type of technology is thickbox, is it code you can edit, how easy / hard is it use

Very easy, it's a little js app built upon the jQuery javascript framework. Some member here have already used it successfully I think

No only joking I'll have a look into it.
