    They may have applied a brush to an outer stroke of the circle, expanded it, welded it to the inner circle fill (pathfinder unite) then "cleaned it up a bit." Brushes leave a lot of little tiny...

  • trying to install and get jQuery to work...

    I want to play around with some jQuery, but I can't get anything to work. I must be missing something somewhere...I posted my test page below. When I click the link it should fade the red box out, but nothing happens. I don't get any errors in Firebug and I know my path to the javascript file is correct. Any ideas?

    #box {background-color: red; width: 300px; height: 300px;}

    </style>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
    $('a').click(function() {
    $('#box').fadeOut();
    });
    });

      Two quick things:
      1)You should link to jQuery like this:
      Code:
      <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
      That way it's possible the user will have it cached.

      2) you should add return false to the end of any link function that doesn't activate a link
      Code:
      $('a').click(function() {
      $('#box').fadeOut();
      return false;
      });
      This makes sure that the link is not activated by the browser.
