Hello! I'm a beginner in Javascript and am currently including the lightbox code (from Dynamic drive) on a page that also runs a smooth navigational code but for some reason the .gif arrows that are supposed to show in my navigation to let the user know that it is a drop down menu do not show when effects.js is enabled. If I comment effects.js out in my html, then the arrows appear in my navigation. Suggestions are most appreciated!! Here is the navigational code:


//** Smooth Navigational Menu- By Dynamic Drive DHTML code library: http://www.dynamicdrive.com
//** Script Download/ instructions page: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddlevelsmenu/
//** Menu created: Nov 12, 2008

//** Dec 12th, 08" (v1.01): Fixed Shadow issue when multiple LIs within the same UL (level) contain sub menus: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/s...ghlight=smooth

//** Feb 11th, 09" (v1.02): The currently active main menu item (LI A) now gets a CSS class of ".selected", including sub menu items.

//** May 1st, 09" (v1.3):
//** 1) Now supports vertical (side bar) menu mode- set "orientation" to 'v'
//** 2) In IE6, shadows are now always disabled

//** July 27th, 09" (v1.31): Fixed bug so shadows can be disabled if desired.


var ddsmoothmenu={

//Specify full URL to down and right arrow images (23 is padding-right added to top level LIs with drop downs):
arrowimages: {down:['downarrowclass', 'http://www.mysite.net/sandbox/images/down.gif', 23], right:['rightarrowclass', 'http://www.mysite.net/sandbox/images/right.gif']},

transition: {overtime:300, outtime:300}, //duration of slide in/ out animation, in milliseconds
shadow: {enable:true, offsetx:5, offsety:5},
