If you had the 2.9.1 beta version and upgraded to 2.9.1 non beta then the transition and other attributes spoken here no longer work. If you don't know what level you have you may click here and retro back to the 2.9.1 beta level. The beta browser minor version of 2.9.1 is 16416 and the upgraded browser minor version is 16421 which is also displayed in the above site made by JD Vortex.

Transition In E-mail Using 2.9 or 2.9.1 beta
With the addition of the 2.9 upgrade or 2.9.1 beta a transition can be seen in an e-mail when said e-mail is opened and also the logo attribute usually associated with the body tag as well as address, credits and instructions. <display: transition="type goes here" logo="image URL here"> is the syntax used within the signature box used anywhere after the body tag and is a separate tag not associated with the standard body tag. When using raw HTML within an e-mail message the transition precedent is that of what is in the signature ergo using a different transition remove the signature. The image logo will be seen either by tapping the "Recent" key or the "Info" key. The attributes of address, instructions and credits may be used within the display tag.
Transition For A Web Page
Transition is an attribute of the body tag just like bgcolor or text is. Transition is a WTV only attribute and not seen by computers. All WTV boxes can see transition on a web page as you saw, "slideup", when this page was opened. The old Classic box can see transition in an email or a news group post if the other persons, the sender, signature is embedded. An embedded signature means that all of the codes, most at any rate, are programmed at a file server and that URL is embedded in the signature box thereby enabling all boxes to send transition. There are fourteen different transitions. The transition of "spinoutin" and "blackfade" can not be seen by the old Classic box and numbers 9, 10, 11 and 12 transitions can not be seen in email or posts, embedded or not, by the old Classic box. Below are the transitions with a hyperlink to see all of them including "slideright" which you saw when this page was opened. Example of the code usage:
<body bgcolor="you_pick" text="you_pick" transition="you_pick">. You can add the attribute of transition="type here" to an anchor tag which will override an existing transition of that page. Example:
<a href="URL here" transition="slidedown">
click here</a> and remember this is a WTV only attribute and has recently been nuked by the WTV aka MSN TV. The body tag is used only once and all attributes go within this tag. If you embed your signature then the same bgcolor and text colors used in your file server programming should be the same colors as you put in you signature box. There are more body attributes, WTV only, that can be seen here plus a page that the Internet Explorer browser can use for transitions so click here and also see below.
For computer users to see transition, at least for the IE browser, the below commands should be put after the <head> tag. You can change the Transition=23 to another number, 0 to 23, and see the effect when you enter and leave the page. This page uses the below.
<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="RevealTrans(Duration=4,Transition=23)">
<meta http-equiv="Page-Exit" content="RevealTrans(Duration=4,Transition=23)">
Below are the different numbers, their effect and where they came from plus a great page on using both WTV and PC transitions together in a random method here.
