OK, I do web design at work. Dreamweaver/Fireworks, simple HTML/CSS.

Lately, some sites have been doing a nifty little trick. Text scrolls, then breaks and there is a static pic, then more scrolling text, then a static pic.

Some of them get hyper fancy and the pics either fade or actually scroll horizontally by.

What is this style even called!?

Here a simple example:

Ah, that's step one.

Step two. Is there a tool to create it? I doubt everyone out there is hand coding this.
