Want to add a cool (albeit IE-only) effect to your ASP.NET 2.0 Web pages? If so, add the following statement to the <head> element of the site’s master page:

<meta http-equiv=”Page-Exit” content=”progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Fade(duration=.5)” />

Then watch what happens as you navigate between pages.

DXImageTransform is old news in a way; it’s been around in one form or another since IE 4.0. You can use it to create some pretty garish Web pages, but used judiciously, it can add some welcome spice to a Web site. For more information, see Introduction to Filters and Transitions on MSDN’s Web site.
