I've only been on the list a couple of weeks, and already learnt heaps
from all you helpful people.

I'm hoping someone can solve this problem.

I'm creating a site using Dreamweaver's swap image feature. There is a long
menu on the homepage with each item needing a bit of explanation, so I
thought "swap image' would be ideal. Point your mouse to an item and a
graphic appears with more info, and is replaced with another graphic when
you move to the next item. To complicate things, when you aren't pointing
at any item there is an animation. I am happy with the way it works in
Netscape 4 (although I would love to know if  there is something I could do
to make the animation *start* spinning more quickly when you first
download). But in IE 5 it is a mess. The previous image often runs into the
following one. Is it the animation that is causing the problem?

This is the site http://www.nzchinasociety.org.nz

Hoping i'm not going to have to start again from scratch :-)
