I am developing a jquery slide show at www.mauitradewinds.com/Cycle
Since the images are large, and may take a few moments to load, I decided to use the first image as a backgound for the slide show div. I thought that would fill the space until the dynamic elements have loaded. To test this, I removed the slide show images from the div, expecting to see just the static backgdound image. But it doesn't appear. What is wrong?
