Good Afternoon, everyone. I am new to this forum so I honestly don't know what to expect. But I wanted to see if I could get some help here with a project that I am working on (No! it is NOT homework). Without giving all the specifies, which would take to much time up, I would like to jump in and give you the details of what I am trying to do.

This application I am going to be showing off some of my work with a slide show of sort with a slide effect. In the click event handler for the links in the 'work list', I wanted to use a slide effect to hide the description (text) of the current work over a duration of one-half second. Trying to use the direction option to slide the description to the right. Here is what my index.html code looks like (the text isn't anything more than Lorem Ispum, right now until I get it working):

                    teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, 
                    dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how 
                    to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there 
                    anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally 
                    circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, 
                    which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who 
                    has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, 
                    or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?"</p>

                    so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they 
                    cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail 
                    in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. 
                    These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is 
                    untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be 
                    welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the 
                    obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances 
                    accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects 
                    pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains."</p>

I have searched the internet with maybe some examples that I could follow but with no luck. I even went to codecanyon.net because I know they usually have some good examples on their I could follow.

I am not confident in jQuery, first and foremost, I was just trying to figure out how to insert some slide animation into my script. I hope I explained myself right. Any help would be appreciated, I have the code down to thus far I am just stuck.
