NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

From The Developers...
One thing you should know about the animator is that it can take a long time to load. (It does have to load several images!) We recommend that you experiment, but we've found that it operates best when you have a 100Mz computer or faster with a T1 connection or better.


The Animation Feature
WW2010 Current Weather Products

When you choose to animate a product, you will always see a button-bar that looks like this:
