Welcoming visitors with a sliding message

Let's slide in text from off the page. Text that appears to slide in from the edge of the page no longer takes scads of digital x/y plot points and mathematical algorithms. The Fx.Slide() class takes care of those particulars and allows us to focus on a fancy presentation.
