DOM Image Annotation

A new script and description: DOM Image Annotation. This describes how to achieve Flickr’s neat trick of annotating bits of an image with a box and a tooltip through simple unobtrusive DHTML.
This is a minor celebratory script, since I have now (wait for it, wait for it) finished writing the book! Well, nearly all; I’ve done all the technical bits. The introduction and stuff remains to be done, but all the hard and useful stuff is out the way. No, I still don’t know a publish date. But this script came to mind in an instant after reading about Gina’s image annotation, and so I put it together.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
