-STAR RATING-
-------------

==========================
=== Script information ===

--- Functions ---

The following script has five functions:

createStarRating(ratingName) - This function creates the starrating, please note that you need to enter the name that you use
to retrieve to value (1,2,3,4,5) of the starrating. This must be in a form in order to be able to retrieve the value using
for example a PHP form handling script

changeStars(starId) - This function is activated by the onmouseover event and changes the source of the 5 star images depending on
what star the mouse is

fadeStars(starId2) - This function sets all the stars not selected (the StarOutSrc) and is activated by the onmouseout event

selectStars(starId3) - This function sets the star sources depending on which star has been clicked. It also set the selectedStarRating[x]
to true so that fadeStars() and changeStars() will not be activated onmouseout/onmouseover

strlen(string) - This function returns the length of a string

--- How to use this script ---

This script needs to be implemented inside a form to be used, 
you are able to give the name that you want by filling in the name. 

Example of the usage of this script (please note that the < is replaced with [ 
and the > with ], THIS IS ONLY BECAUSE ELSE THE SCRIPT WILL BE INTERRUPTED, 
the script will not work if you also add the [] instead of <>):

<form action="" method="post" name="myForm">
<embed src="musicVideo001.mpeg" />
[script type="text/javascript"]
createStarRating("musicVideo001Rating");
[/script]
</form>

--- Variables ---

The following you are able to change:

starOutSrc - This contains the source of the image where your starOn is located on the server/your computer
starOnSrc - This contains the source of the image where your starOut is located on the server/your computer
