Default Rotators interferring with existing 'swap image'

Hi. I found a great tutorial on creating rotating images using the DW 'swap image' feature: http://www.communitymx.com/content/a....cfm?cid=651FF.

Thing is, I already had 'swap image' code in my code for some rollovers.

Now, the rollovers stick - the rotating images work just fine. Is this normal or can somebody suggest a solution?

My code for the script is:

<script type="text/javascript">
function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
  var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
  var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
  var p,i,x;  if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
    d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
  if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
  for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
  if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
  var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
   if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}
// Comma separated list of images to rotate
var imgs = new Array('rotators/bar_1.jpg','rotators/bar_2.jpg','rotators/bar_3.jpg','rotators/bar_4.jpg');
// delay in milliseconds between image swaps 1000 = 1 second
var delay = 500;
var counter = 0;

function preloadImgs(){
  for(var i=0;i<imgs.length;i++){

function randomImages(){
  if(counter == (imgs.length)){
    counter = 0;
  MM_swapImage('rotator', '', imgs[counter++]);
  setTimeout('randomImages()', delay);

And the relevant body code is:

<body onload="preloadImgs();randomImages();">
I deleted all reference to my rollover images in the original body code. I feel I should not have done this? Thing is, everything works, but the rollovers stick.

No worries if you can't help - this probably looks a proper mess to sort out!

Why not use CSS for your rollovers and the javascript for your image rotator? If not check out JQuery framework as an option to keep your code from conflicting.
