I have adapted a slideshow script for my web page Which works in all browsers (i think) but only fades in IE 6. Does anybody know of a way to make it fade in Netscape?

Hi jamie,

This is a Dynamic Drive Scripts Help Forum so if this is a Dynamic Drive script, please give us a link to the original code, and please leave the Dynamic Drive credit intact when using it. If this is not a Dynamic Drive script, you are posting in the wrong forum, go to general coding, JavaScript. Anyways, this script looks somewhat familiar and I think it is only intended to fade in IE5+, 'filter="blendTrans' being proprietary to IE5+. There may be a way to adapt it using the -moz-opacity property to fade in NS however, that works differently than blendTrans and may not be adaptable here. I'll get back to you on that once you figure out where this script came from.

PLEASE: Include a link to your page that you want help with.
