Thanks, Josh, for your reply.

> why not use Flash? It'd be a snap to create a fade in slide show...
I've never been too keen on Flash, but my reasoning may be out of  
date now. I personally hate the idea of waiting for Flash to load on  
a home page. I wouldn't mind any comments on this, as things may be  
different now. I guess it always depends on how large the file is etc...

It is just a series of photos, which from time to time will be  
changed to a new series (another reason I didn't think that the Flash  
option was suitable). I have two projects that require this feature.

In the meantime, with some help off-list, I've managed to work  
through the problems with the javascript solutions, and it is working  
fine now.
