Version 3.3 19.9 kB Works with Firefox 12.0 and later

Version 3.3 contains two minor changes:
1) The failure of Firefox 17 to update the image viewing container was circumvented by changing its position from 'fixed' to 'absolute'.
2) floor(*) is now computed with *|0 rather than ~~*.

Version 2.1 15.4 kB Works with Firefox 12.0 and later

Version 2.1 contains the following improvements:
1) The range of the different states is now enforced so as to prevent errors and loss of backward compatibility (bug fix).
2) The scroll position is now always rounded for 'scroll mode: stepped' and never for 'scroll mode: normal' (bug fix).
3) An error in a test which should ascertain a dark background color for the reader buttons was corrected (bug fix).
4) The color of the background and masks is now also differentiated in case no color scheme is set.
5) Darkening and lightening were made more or less each others inverses in order to make usage more intuitive.
6) The line between columns for 'layout: scroll' was made much thinner.
