    Sourc code:

    this file was originally written in reply to a question in alt.html to
    demonstrate that the use of EVIL frames or EVIL pop-ups are not required
    to display thumbnail images and their larger counterparts.

    * search engine friendly URIs.
    * cache friendly.
    * 5 colors.
    * 3 styles including a plain text version for crappy browsers
    if that browser doesn't allow CSS to be turned off or the user
    doesn't know how. media="all" hack is used for NS4.x

    /* return a 304 if the same page is requested again so the browser
    retrieves the page from its cache rather than the server having
    to generate and send the same page again. it will depend on the
    browser and/or its cache settings if it bothers to check to see
    if the file its requesting has changed from the one in its cache.
    $if_modified_since = preg_replace('/;.*$/', '', $HTTP_IF_MODIFIED_SINCE);
    $mtime = filemtime($SCRIPT_FILENAME);
    $gmdate_mod = gmdate('D, d M Y H:i:s', $mtime) . ' GMT';
    if ($if_modified_since == $gmdate_mod) {
    header('HTTP/1.1 304 Not Modified');
    } // exit here after 304 is sent.

    // if not a 304 continue ...

    // gzip pages

    // headers to be sent with the pages
    header('Author: brucie © 2003');
    header('Content-Language: en');

    $abspath=''; // absolute path
    $imgpath='images/'; // path to the images
    $thisfile='butterflies'; // name of the script file

    if the above isn't used the URIs would look like (example):

    which should be fine but some search engines may choke on
    the '.' in the URI. (google did a few years ago)

    because $PATH_INFO is used to pass the variables absolute URIs need to be
    throughout the markup. if they weren't relative URIs would end up looking


    and just get worse each time a link is clicked



    // if $PATH_INFO contains goodies seperate them into the style, color and
    list($style,$color,$butterfly)=explode('/', substr($PATH_INFO,1));}

    // if the $PATH_INFO doesn't contain goodies use these:
    $style=01; // slant style
    $color=01; // pink
    $butterfly=00;} // the intro image

    // display appropriate intro image for the color selected
    case 1: $introimage='intro01.png'; break; // pink

    case 5: $introimage='intro05.png'; break; // red
