I couldn't get my slideshow to work in Wordpress using Atahualpa theme but it worked when I created a simple webpage in Notepad.
So I copied the code from the Wordpress page and went through it line by line to see what might be the problem.
It turned out that when I removed the very first line, the one containing DOCTYPE, it started working.
As you can see from the source of these two pages the only difference is that in the one where the slideshow is working I have removed the first line of code. Apart from that they are identical:
I used a validator tool to check the page and it reported no errors.
Any ideas why this is happening? Is there anything I can do about it?
(Note: There is an extra line in the working one at the top i.e.
but this isn't in the original, it appears only when displayed in a browser window).
