Thanks to the help of several contributors, the simple standards-based slide show system I put into public beta status, and which I may well end up calling S5, is almost ready to go final. At its core, it seems to work consistently in Internet Explorer (both platforms), Firefox 0.9, and Safari 1.2. I’ve also scripted things so that the system works in Opera 6 and up, basically allowing those browsers to fall back to using Opera Show. This allows the slide show’s behavior to be consistent with what Opera Show users already expect, which seems like a good thing.
(Update: if you downloaded the archive between 1421 EDT and 1504EDT, grab it again. I initially forgot to update it with the new files. Sorry! It’s fixed now.)
