Can't use layers?  I don't know of any other solution aside from layers
(aside from Flash, which I don't know).

Don't WANT to use frames?  I don't know how you COULD accomplish this with
frames.  (Could be there is a way that I am not aware of--I am not an expert
on frames).

If you want an animated slide, you are talking about DHTML.  My advice is to
go straight to DynAPI 2 and take a look around.  The DynAPI has tools to do
precisely what you describe.  (Yes, I am a big fan of DynAPI and have
recommended it before on this list).
