the following slideshow works in all browsers as far as switching images,
but it is supposed to have a fade from image to image.

it works in IE8, but not Chrome, Safari, Opera, FireFox

anyone know how to fix that?

As far as I can tell, 'filter' is an IE only property.  Most slideshows use jQuery to create transitions in slideshows.  A lot of people use this one: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm
