Hello experts.

The prototype samples are very good but i have problems that i describe here:http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_23514497.html.
Any help?

Line 4 is NOT a linked file. It's just a line of text that has no impact on the programming logic. It's no different from writing "Hello Stranger". The code below worked for me. Notice that I left line 4 intact. The only thing I did difference is that I linked the stylesheets directly to http://prototype-window.xilinus.com.

It seems you have copied the javscript files and the stylesheet files, but not sure if you copied the images that the stylesheets are referencing. You need to look at the stylesheets, figure out what images it's using and copy them to your server. If needed, you may have to adjust the path to your images, depending on where you save them.

That link has examples. Most likely you are not linking the files correctly. If the browser cannot locate your source files, then it will not behave as you expect. Do you have url for your page?
