First of all that script is a bit outdated, use this version:


<script type="text/javascript">

var trans_width='140px' //slideshow width
var trans_height='225px' //slideshow height
var pause=3000 //SET PAUSE BETWEEN SLIDE (3000=3 seconds)
var degree=10 //animation speed. Greater is faster.

var slideshowcontent=new Array()
//Define slideshow contents: [image URL, OPTIONAL LINK, OPTIONAL LINK TARGET]
slideshowcontent[0]=["photo1.jpg", "http://www.cnn.com", "_new"]
slideshowcontent[1]=["photo2.jpg", "", ""]

window.addEventListener("load", startit, false)

To center it, wrap it in a division:


<div style="width: 140px; height: 225px; margin: 0 auto;">
<script type="text/javascript">

/***********************************************

***********************************************/

var trans_width='140px' //slideshow width
var trans_height='225px' //slideshow height
var pause=3000 //SET PAUSE BETWEEN SLIDE (3000=3 seconds)
var degree=10 //animation speed. Greater is faster.

var slideshowcontent=new Array()
//Define slideshow contents: [image URL, OPTIONAL LINK, OPTIONAL LINK TARGET]
slideshowcontent[0]=["photo1.jpg", "http://www.cnn.com", "_new"]
slideshowcontent[1]=["photo2.jpg", "", ""]
slideshowcontent[2]=["photo3.jpg", "http://w . . .

. . . else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent("onload", startit)
else if (ie4||dom||document.layers)
window.onload=startit

</script>
</div>

Set the width and height (red) to the same values as in the script.

In IE this also requires that the page have a valid URL DOCTYPE or the HTML 5 DOCTYPE.
