Two questions please.

I've changed the flying planes script to fly my own image at a varied speed with just the one plane however the plane flys behind a slideshow that I have on the page.

Is there anyway that I can change it so the plane flys in the front?

The other question is that I've noticed that its compatiable with FireFox 1+ but it doesn't work on Version 2, is this likely to change in the future.

Thanks

Jac

The answer to your first question depends upon what type of slideshow you've got. If it is a DHTML (meaning, in this case, it uses HTML, javascript and style) slide show and is actually on the same page, then probably giving the planes a higher z-index will take care of that (from the script, addition red):


document.write('<img id="si'+i+'" src="'+rndPic+'" style="z-index:100000;position:absolute;top:0px;left:0px">');

If it is a Flash slide show, its wmode param and attribute need to be transparent. For other types of slide shows, there may be no solution.

I have no idea about problems with FF 2, if there really are any, or when they might be addressed if they do exist.
