I'm a heavy 2002 user and the only slide show I can think of is the insert/
photo gallery/ slide show style.
where is the one you used located? I quickly glanced your page and in the
general area I was looking for I saw applet this and applet that, plus that
"grey box" is a giveaway.
You mentioned the reluctance to use flash because of people having to
download the viewer. Let me say this:
Even with the "no flash viewer" on the users computer you're better off
making them do that than getting a jvm to see the applet. Many users don't
have the ability to view applets and if you somehow make a link to a source
for one it's a big download. Some people have their jvm turned off on
With the flash show a good flash editor will output a page with the proper
html and base url for the viewer, etc. all you have to do is do an include
page into one of your table cells and browse to this html page your flash
program spit out. I've also found that it's quite easy to edit the actual
html page outputted by a flash maker with FrontPage to get rid of the
default stuff they sometimes put there.
