jwenting wrote:P.S. what do you think of the book? Haven't read anything by Leen Ameraal in nearly a decade because I wasn't impressed with his writings in the mid 1990s (note, he used to write for Sybex at the time, who were at the far bottom of the quality pile at the time).
From Amazon's mixed bag of reviews little can be gauged except that people think the price is a bit steep

An applet could be used to provide animation.
jwenting wrote:An applet would certainly do the trick, but then the web application is no longer thin client.
jwenting wrote:true. And no image format in the world will give you animation like that.
Unless you're going to render an animated gif out of a few dozen frames created out of the same source data but rotated slightly for each frame, and in that case the animation won't be user controlled but a predetermined cycle.
