Of course, all the effects are cumulative, so a given DOM node can have as many effects as wanted (though good taste will probably limit the number of effects :-)
The first effect I am publishing is a fading effect, where a given node's opacity changes smoothly from one minimum value to a maximum value and back. Since opacity is unfortunately not handled in a standard way by the web browsers yet, only IE and Mozilla (Firefox, etc...) browsers have been fully tested. If you experience problems with this effect, please contact me with details.
Note: For opacity to work in Internet Explorer, it is necessary to set either "position: absolute" or a "float" value. If other positioning attributes are used, the opacity settings are ignored by IE. Firefox, however, doesn't have this limitation. That can be a real bother!
