hidden/visible divs

okay ive been working at this for probably 4 hours now, and I (not to
mention my boss) am pretty upset.

function show0(){
document.getEle mentByID('shift ').style.visibi lity = 'visible';
function hide0(){
document.getEle mentByID('shift ').style.visibi lity = 'hidden';
function show1(){
document.getEle mentByID('flash ').style.visibi lity = 'visible';
function hide1(){
document.getEle mentByID('flash ').style.visibi lity = 'hidden';
function doTimer() {
var timeout
timeout = setTimeout("sho w1();hide0();", 30000);

function changePic(newCo ntent) {
document.images['main'].src = newContent;
window.cleartim out(timeout)

<div style="position :absolute;top:0 px;left:0px;vis ibility:hidden; "
id="shift"> <img src="pics/dvd.jpg" width="300" height="220"
name="main"> </div>
<div style="position :absolute;top:0 px;left:0px;vis ibility:visible ;"
<object classid="clsid: D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://download.macrom edia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#ver sion=6,0,29,0"
width="300" height="220">

"bgcolor", "#FFFFFF" , "src", "shift" , "width", "300" , "height",
"220" , "name" , "shift", "id", "shift");

The function is called from a parent frame. When a user clicks on a
thumbnail, the shift.swf (rollover animation) movie is supposed to
become invisible and the new image should take its place. After 30
seconds, it should revert back to the way it was until another change
function is called.

Its really depressing cause i know the fix is going to be something
very simple.

The function
Which function? (I see six, and two imported JS files (presumably full
of functions themselves)).
is called from a parent frame.
So there is more HTML and script that is not shown. That means that
this cannot be tested to determine how it behaves in any environment.
Though it probably could not be tested anyway as the swf files, images
and eternal javascript files would be needed to do that. This is
probably a case where providing the URL on an online example of this
problem would be most appropriate.

That is what it is supposed to do, but what does it actually do? Are any
errors generated?

No reproducible demonstration of the issue, no description of symptoms.
The best responses you are likely to get will be random wild guesses;
mine is javascript pseudo-protocol HREFs. Simple to fix but an example
of pure coincidence if they are even relevant ;-)

getElementByID should be getElementById note the lowercase D in Id. I
also change visibility to display note the differences. Here is some
very simple code that works after 3 seconds but only once...

<script type="text/javascript">

function HideIt(){
document.getEle mentById('shift ').style.displa y = 'inline';
document.getEle mentById('flash ').style.displa y = 'none';

function ShowIt() {
document.getEle mentById('shift ').style.displa y = 'inline';
document.getEle mentById('flash ').style.displa y = 'none';

function doTimer() {
var timeout
timeout = setTimeout("Sho wIt();", 3000);

<body onload=doTimer( )>
<div style="display: none;" id="shift">SHIF T</div>
<div style="display: inline;" id="flash">FLAS H</div>

yeah....i knew this would be something simple. Lower case D. Thats
all it took. Works exactly how i wanted it to...now to add netscape
and older IE versions.

I guess ive just typed it so many times that when i copy and pasted it
5 times it should have been right the next 5 times. I know this
mistake wont happen again...

Thanks for the help. :)
