This is a test of Cool Javascript Slideshow with Crossfade Picasa Edition. An easy way to do a slideshow without using flash. The other nice thing about it is you don't have to specify absolute coordinates for the top and left corner of the DIV's that hold the images. Instead the DIV can fall nicely into the document.

This technique uses two "absolute" positioned IMGs inside of one "relative" positioned DIV. That way the two images that are being used for the crossfade effect are positioned at the top left corner of the "relative" positioned DIV. Some other crossfade javascript scripts require that you use DIV's that are "absolute" positioned. This is a demo of the Picasa Web Albums (PWA) version of Cool Slideshow
