FYI: Unable to view your work normally.
I'm only able to see the thumbnails. When  I click on a thumb nail the full size image flickers for just a split  second, but won't stay onscreen.
I'm on a MAC with the latest everything updated.
It works fine in all browsers under Windows

I'm trying it using Safari 4 beta for Mac and I get the same as the sender of the e-mail. Have you actually tried Safari on Windows Jim?

FWIW, I have just noticed that (with both your and the demo sites) the image stays on screen for as long as the mouse button is held down.

@Be3G
That seems to be a problem with a Mac and the href="#nogo function but I haven't found a reason or a workaround yet

Hi Jim, this is a 'feature' of the Mac mouse. It only registers the mouse click when the button is held down.

Re: Can Mac users check this site

Works fine on Camino 1.6 (uses the same engine as Firefox), but doesn't work in Safari 3, like others have said. Looked at the code, and I have to confess it doesn't look like a standard code - not that I'm an expert, just dabble with the coding side really. I don't understand how it's done, but it certainly looks messy to me.
Would this kind of effect not be better achieved by using Javascript to change the images? Dreamweaver has a useful Swap Image behaviour that should do this kind of thing.
BTW: Your other example again works on Camino but doesn't on Safari, so it doesn't appear that you've done anything to the code - it's just that it's not compatible with certain browsers. Safari is one of the most strict browsers on sticking to web standards, which is probably why a lot of the sites "tweaked" to make them work on Internet Explorer on Windows don't always work as expected. The problem is really Internet Explorer, of course, but the trouble is a good percentage of people use it - rightly or wrongly!

Not sure if this helps you, but Dreamweaver's code validation reported these issues that need addressing...
