   #img1 {z-index:999}
 <script src=""></script>

<div id="container">
 <img id="img0" />
 <img id="img1" />

var image1 = '';
var image2 = '';
var image3 = '';

var imgArray = new Array(image1,image2,image3);
var imgCount = 0;
var e = 0;
var fadeSpeed = 2000;

function slideShow() {
	if(e == 2) {e = 0;}
	if(imgCount == imgArray.length) {imgCount = 0;}
	document.getElementById('img'+e).src = imgArray[imgCount];
	setTimeout("slideShow()", 5000);


I enjoy being challanged on a daily basis. I love all aspects of technology and business.

Thank you for your contributions! Definately a great job on your updated verions, especicallythe second version...I have quite a bit to learn to get to that level of JavaScript mastery.

would be interesting to see if anyone else can modify either version to further reduce/simplify the script..

After this thread becomes stale, we'll vote on the final version so that others can benefit from this simple slideshow. Sometimes, you just need a simple solution!
