1) Script Title: DHTML Billboard

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/dhtmlbillboard.htm

3) Describe problem: As in the thread below, it is a little hard to figure out what to do with this script because the example on the page has different content than the example source code:

After seeing the post it took me a few minutes to figure out how it worked (I had to look at the source on the demo page), and then I realized the image was just content in the billboard div. That's easy enough to do, but according to the source written there now it looks like the image is somehow otherwise generated (since the text matches the example).

If this is to prevent hotlinking (just copying the existing course code with dd image), then perhaps a note below the text field saying "and if you want images just add <img> tags to the billboard divs" would be fine.

Hmm to me at least it should all be very clear the moment the user copies/pastes the code offered and runs it. There are no images in that demo, which should tell the user the images they show on the DD script page are just part of some sample content. If this misunderstanding pops up a few times in the forums, then I may be persuaded to think otherwise. :)
