It looks like both #wrapper and #copy_wide need to be made wider.

Also you may want to replace the "height:100%" declarations with "height:261px".

The slideshow doesn't seem to load in Firefox for me. It looks like some of the XHTML errors might be the cause.

P.S. Is it really necessary to use empty paragraphs as spacers?

I increased width of wrapper and that helped a bit to move animation up and changed the height to 261px.  However, it is still very low on page.  The software generated the following pages.   Where did you find all the empy paragraphs used as spacers?

The empty paragraphs are in gallery_testslideshow.html (which is the only file they're likely to be in).

Try replacing the "CU3OX" section with this one:
<!-- Start CU3OX.com BODY section -->
<script language="JavaScript" src="swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<div style="width:640px;height:261px;margin:0 auto;">
  <div id ="cu3ox"></div>
  <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    swfobject.createSWF(
      {data:"cu3ox.swf", width:"100%", height:"100%" },
      {menu:true, allowFullScreen:false, allowScriptAccess:'sameDomain', wmode:"transparent", bgcolor:'#FFFFFF', 
       devicefont:false, scale:'noscale', loop:true, play:true, quality:'high'}, "cu3ox");
  </script><a style="display:none" href="http://cu3ox.com">Flash Rotating Banner by cu3ox.com v1.1</a><noscript>
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" 
      codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0" 
      width="100%" height="261">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
    <param name="movie" value="cu3ox.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high"/><param name="scale" value="noscale"/>
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />	
    <embed src="cu3ox.swf" quality="high" scale="noscale" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="100%" height="261" name="cu3ox" wmode="transparent"
      align="left" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" 
      pluginspage="http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/" />
    </object></noscript>
</div>
<!-- End CU3OX.com BODY section -->

Well that kinda fixed it.  Software vendor contends that the program is cross compliant.  Can you tell me the version FF you use and what version Flash Player so I can try and figure this out

thanks

You're welcome.

It works in Firefox now. The XHTML errors that I corrected in the "CU3OX" section I posted above seem to have solved the problem. (This is one of the reasons that fixing errors is so important -- an error might not break things in all browsers.)

It still doesn't work on my pc with FF or Opera.  Maybe it is a cache issue.  

By the way, when I looked at the original code that the software provided using dreamweaver, there were no extra spaces.  I am not sure where you saw those so that I can remove them for future use.

Yeah, it's probably a caching issue, because it seems fine here in Firefox 3.6 and 3.0 and Opera 10.5 (I haven't installed 10.6 yet).

The empty paragraphs seem to be gone now. They were immediately under the main nav.
