I tried playing with z-indexes a few times but it wasn't working
properly (either). Regardless of what you use you really have to
deal with the previous slide instead of just stacking things higher and
higher ... although I didn't ever try multiplying the id * 100 and setting
the z-index to that number. It's possible that would have worked.

Thanks for your help, Tom. Here's the script in action. It's been tested
in Phoenix (linux), Mozilla (1-ish? on Windows2k) and IE6.0 (on windows2k).
I'm going to write a little switcher so that if your browser doesn't
support getElementById all the pictures show up on the page instead of as
a slide show. I've got a few other things I need to get done first though.

curious to see how they turned out.)
