Trouble with frames and slideshow script

Hello,

I am implementing the Milonic DHTML menu on a not-for-profit site that I maintain. I am using frames on this site and have been able to get the Milonic menu to work in most situations by relying upon the example from the Milonic website.

Unfortunately, it appears that the menu code breaks on pages that use a "conveyor belt" slideshow script that I found (and modified) from DynamicDrive.com. On those pages, the menus do not appear in the frame body, the headers just highlight helplessly.

I am not knowledgeable enough about javascript in order to fix this issue (if indeed it can be fixed). I would really prefer not to give up the frames if at all possible. I have been able to show that the Milonic menu and the slideshow script can operate together quite nicely when everything is on the same page (thus it is only due to the frames arrangement that things break down). I've also tried a variety of other slideshow scripts from DynamicDrive in the hopes that they would not conflict with the frames version of the Milonic menu. Unfortunately, all of the slideshow scripts cause the menus to break.

I've looked all over this help forum for postings of this nature and could not find anything. I would really appreciate any help that can be provided.

I've set up a version of my site that you should be able to access to see the problems:

The pages that break are on the "Connect" menu. Go to the actual "photo album" page links that are on the submenu (beginning with "Brunch"). Whereas all other pages show the menus in the frame body, the pages with the slide show do not.

Many thanks in advance,

Jonathan
