1) Script Title: Swissarmy Slide show

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/swissarmy/index.htm

3) Describe problem: On the show I'm trying to implement it seems like only every other image is doing the fade/blend thing http://olliebox.com/_indexss.php to have a look. THis is just preliminary and the images aren't finalized so please... no flames. Any ideas why this might be happening? IE 7 is the browser.

Your page had a couple of heads, titles and bodies, and meta tags out of place, all not technically allowed. But the main problem appears to be that you are allowing IE to parse the page in quirks mode. To prevent that use at least a:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">


I cleaned up your page a bit, but it probably still has some technical errors:

<BLOCKQUOTE>Do you <STRONG>still</STRONG> start your races with a shotgun, cannon, horn or whistle? How frightfully crude. Re-enter civilized society. Get yourself an <STRONG>Ollie Wallock Race Start Machine</STRONG>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>The<STRONG><FONT size = +2> OLLIE</FONT></STRONG> is the first name in automated race start timers. It has been around for twelve years or so. The original idea of a <FONT size = +1>completely enclosed and portable unit</FONT> has never changed. Although the appearance hasn't changed much the implemention of the idea has gone through several iterations in order to make the best possible <STRONG><FONT size = +2> OLLIE</FONT></STRONG> that I can make with off the shelf parts. My competitors ( PRO REGATTA GUN, AUTOHOOT etc. ) came later and the rest is history.

Outstanding! Just the ticket, I inherited the code and didn't even think to check for those errors. Once the tags were straightened out, your Swiss Army knife worked flawlessly. Thanks for pointing out the errors!!!
