I just need a nice, easy script that will let me name four or five images and rotate through them when the page loads. Anybody got one they can recommend?

Since I made the leap from the dreaded IE years ago and switched to Firefox as my main browser (back when it was still called Firebird or something like that), I've been coding for standards-compliant browsers and then tweaking things to get IE to work. As a non-designer, the tweaking part has always been a real hassle for me, but I've always found that if a page works in FF, it's going to work in Opera, Chrome, and Safari (for Windows, at any rate).
So I coded up this page. It's a very straightforward (and not all that pretty) design, intended to emulate a client's current site but taking it out of tables and using valid code. I checked it for valid HTML 4.01 Strict and the only errors involved the presence of Google Analytics code. I tried it out in FF and IE 8, and everything was fine. It wasn't until after I added the slide show to one of the pages that I tested it in Opera, Safari and Chrome, and it didn't work in Chrome! I had to futz around and specify the width of a block-level element that should have inherited its width from its parent (and does in other browsers).
So that's fixed, although it's not clear to me why it was necessary to fix it in Chrome if it worked everywhere else, but there's still a problem with Chrome. The CSS of the site contains the following:
Simple, right? All of the text on the page uses the same sans-serif font (although colors and sizes differ for various elements). But in Chrome, the page (and not just the page containing the slide show) has all Serif fonts. I had to go into the browser's font setting and set the default Serif font to Verdana -- a sans-serif font -- in order to get it to display properly, and I can't very well put a note on the site telling all Chrome users to do the same.
What could be causing this?

Running the CSS through W3C validation does give one warning:
"Family names containing whitespace should be quoted. If quoting is omitted, any whitespace characters before and after the name are ignored and any sequence of whitespace characters inside the name is converted to a single space."
So, have you tried quoting the "sans-serif 76%" to see if Chrome is just picky on that?

Anyway, thanks. One less reason to yank out my hair.
