    I've seen the blacked out spoilers here for a long time and never gave them much thought. Well, now I'm giving them some thought.

    Is there a way to look at these spoilers or are they just a tease. Sometimes I'd REALLY like to see what's under there. ( and I used to hunt for xmas presents that my parents hid from us... to get a preview of them, too.)

    Left click your mouse, hold it down, and scroll.

    Just drag over the black area and highlight the text.

    See, I told you, it works just fine!

    You can also triple-click (left click) anywhere in the text portion of the box, and the entire text will be highlighted.

    Don't worry, Gary. When I encountered these things a few years ago (on one of the Star Wars websites, I think) I didn't know how the hell to look at them either. If I recall, I think I found out how to view them by accident. [​IMG]

    It seems like the triple click on works with IE. It doesn't with Netcape or Opera. In Opera if you hold down you left mouse button and drag across the box it just make the whole box white.
