Paul Grenier (http://www.endusersharepoint.com/) has a great code snippet using jQuery that you can simply add to a content editor web part. The possibilities are truly endless. This can be used as an alternative to using CSS ( show and hide content ), navigation, or even Connected Web Parts. Check it out: JQuery for Everyone: Preview Pane for Multiple Lists along with JQuery for Everyone: Evolution of the Preview
