1) Script Title: contentslider.js

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/featuredcontentslider.htm

3) Describe problem:

My URL is: www.coasthigh.com

The content slider Will not work with IE 8 with or without compatibility mode.

When Running IE 8 the content slider images do not show up at all: (just grey space...I receive the following message:
_________________________________________________________________

I also included the override tag:
_________________________________________________________________
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
_________________________________________________________________

The problem with the override tag I believe is that we are using Volusuion. With volusion, the code looks like:

<!--

<!-- Mimic Internet Explorer 7 -->
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" >

Volusion states that you can only use scripts and includes in the <head> section because they dynamically include the meta tags.

I do not have access (volusion does not allow) to the meta tag include files.

Unfortunately the space on the homepage where the slider goes is the largest real estate on that page and now it does not work.

The Dynamic script has been great up until I discovered the issue last night...

I use firefox, to who knows how long it has been like this. LOL

Any suggested fixes are much appreciated.

Thank you
