Did you ever get a response to this post or figure this out. I need to be able to do the same thing. Thanks.

Hi John,


With your help and my somewhat knowledge of javascript, I was able to add this script to my actual Navigation by calling up the js onMouseover and still call up the click to go to a specific web page. Thanks so much.

Thanks for the great demo. However, there's a strange behavior in the way the next, prev buttoms work vs the go to specific slide buttoms work. When you click the prev or next buttons, it's stops the show. However, when you click the specific slide buttoms, it does not (or restarts it if the show is stopped). How do I fix this? Thanks in advance.
