Cut & Paste Fade-in-Fade-out background
Credit: Dave Methvin, Windows Magazine

Description: Creates a beautiful fading of color, from black to white, in this case, as someone enters the page.

Example: You just saw it! If not, reload this page to see it again.

Directions: Simply cut and paste the script into the <HEAD> section of your webpage. You may increase the speed of the fading by changing 50 to a lesser positive number (ie: 20). You may change the fade-from and fade-to color by entering new hex values for the two colors, the (00,00,00) being the fade-from color, the others being the fade-to color.
