Hello there.
Having trouble putting images in carousel. Only seem to have placeholder there. Have checked images but what have I done wrong.Don't even have a carousel moving! What do they mean when they say this?
Create a div with transparent place holder in your html
Thanks, Annette:(





<body onload="Carousel()">
<td><div align="center"><script type="text/javascript">
