Modifications to existing DD scripts for bugs or additional features.
The Sticky Tooltip script has some room for updating as I've outlined here:
Sticky Tooltip script - not sticky
Sticky Tooltip script - no dock in IE 7- for image map
In those threads I offer piecemeal solutions, the first of which above is the most problematic:

There are actually 4 css selectors that can figure in this. Only three of them really matter. If you only have one show on your page, you only need to think about the last two. The selectors are:
The id of the show, #fadeshow1, for example.
.fadeslidedescdiv - the class for all description containers.
.descpanelbg - the class for all description backgrounds.
.descpanelfg - the class for all description foregrounds.
I've found that this actually can work. It makes an interesting use of the slide show's undocumented oninit feature, and how well the slide show is written visa vis jQuery's No Conflict mode. I would generally advise using two scripts which work off of the same script library, rather than two different script libraries. However, in this case both scripts are so robust, who can resist?
That said, all you need to do to set up a demo is to follow the instructions for Ultimate Fade

I just wanted to Blog this info to make it easy to find. It regards the Swiss Army Slide Show script:
Because many people want even more flexibility than it originally provided, I've updated it (script only, right click 'save as'):
This is a drop in replacement for swissarmy.js and requires no changes in the on page code
