I copy & pasted it into my page (in a table cell) and it looks great. I click on one of the images & it takes me to the page that I linked it to. All great... up until that point.
It is when i hit the back button on my browser to return to the homepage when all heck lets loose. The slideshow starts to wig out on me and eventually crashes my browser (and even my system one time).
I am on a Mac OS 9.2 testing in IE 5.
I also tested this in OSX and it did the same thing.
THEN I tested on a PC, and the slideshow did not appear at all. It was just white space where my image should have been.
Now I am new to DHTML in general, so I don't know how to go about fixing this. Is there extra code that I should be adding to my document to make it work? Or is this code just buggy? Or does anybody else have any tried & true code for this type of activity that I could use?
What should I do? My client really wants this drop-in slideshow image rotator.
Here is what my code looks like. I just changed the variables that it told me to (height & width, images & links). I placed it in my default.asp (my homepage) inside of a table cell.

var slideshow_width='460px' //SET SLIDESHOW WIDTH (set to largest image's width if multiple dimensions exist)
var slideshow_height='260px' //SET SLIDESHOW HEIGHT (set to largest image's height if multiple dimensions exist)
var pause=3000 //SET PAUSE BETWEEN SLIDE (2000=2 seconds)
var dropimages=new Array()
//SET IMAGE PATHS. Extend or contract array as needed
