and it has these same problems:

> 1. In IE7 on WinXP the JavaScript jump menu under the navigation
> controls (lower right) pops up when clicked, but as you move the mouse
> to the menu items, it disappears and can't be used. If you're fast
> enough to move and click, it still disappears and the click happens on
> the slide, causing it to advance.
> 2. In Opera 8 and 9 (no earlier versions tested) I only get

<#3 is my own problem for now>

> 4. All the browsers I've tested (last two versions of IE, FF, 
> NN, Opera)
> show a flash of unstyled content before the slideshow is styled.

so once I've really really confirmed that it's the slideshow and not me,
I'll post something on Eric's site and see what we learn.
