Hi all. I have this scroller and when the user rolls over the image a caption appears below it. I'd like to have a default caption for the middle image visible on page load. Not sure how to go about this. test.zip

Use z-index which specifies how items are stacked on the page.  An element with greater stack order is always in front of an element with a lower stack order.

I couldn't get z-index to work in this instance.

Can you include a sample of the code that you're trying to get working?

Thanks.

I downloaded  test.zip that you initially sent.  It initially didn't show the images.  But I moved the images folder from inside the CSS folder to be at the same level add the CSS folder.  Then everything else worked without a problem on both IE9 & Google Chrome.  

What browser are you using?

Yes, everything works. However, my original  question is how do I get a default caption to appear on page load.

Sorry for the delay in responding and for not reading your post properly.  What is causing the text now to show is : visibility:hidden; in the #home li div a span  style element.  I am looking for a way to change that to visible when the slide is loaded.
