[thelist] Page freezes in Safari?

My experience is it depends on what version of Safari and what OS, the newer
versions behave better. That said, it looks like it is probably bombing on
adding the imagae via innerhtml. Try putting an empty gif image then
changing it's src property instead: for example:

<script language="Javascript">
function showImage(sImage) {
    sImage = sImage.replace("/", "/stilllife/");
     document.getElementById("divImagePlaceHolder").src = sImage;

            	<img src="some_spacer_gif.gif" alt="" border="0"

Subject: [thelist] Page freezes in Safari?

   I'm doing a lightbox feature on a client's website (sure there are some
prefab scripts for this, but ignore that for a moment), and while everything
seems fine in IE and FF, my graphic designer is reporting problems in
Safari; apparently the page just never finishes loading.

   If you have a moment, please take a look at http://tinyurl.com/f4gqq

be appreciated.



P.S.  The images for this account are a bit large -- not representative of
what will actually be presented here -- so ignore the jumping around that
happens once the page loads.
