Can't get Anything Slider to work locally or remotely even though it's working on jsFiddle

Hi,
I've got this slider on the homepage. I was having problems and got an answer on CSS-tricks.com. My hero got it working in jsFiddle, but when I load the same code, I'm not getting any action on the slider.

Can someone tell me what I'm missing. The fellow at CSS-tricks.com is puzzled as well.

It seems that the code in jsFiddle is missing the doctype, so the page is running in quirks mode. As a result, a certain JavaScript error is being silently corrected (an ID is being used as a global variable).

Change
				      buildComplete: function() {
				        splash.find('li.slide-closed div').css('display', 'none');
				        splash.find('li.slide-open div').fadeIn();
				      },

Open in new window

to
				      buildComplete: function() {
				        var splash=$('#splash');
				        splash.find('li.slide-closed div').css('display', 'none');
				        splash.find('li.slide-open div').fadeIn();
				      },

Woot Woot!!!
This worked. I had to change the $ to jQuery for no conflict. My slider is working!
You, sir, rock once again!

Thank you!
