$('ul.slideshow li').css({opacity: 0.0});

//Get the first image and display it (set it to full opacity)
$('ul.slideshow li:first').css({opacity: 1.0});

//Get the caption of the first image from REL attribute and display it
$('#slideshow-caption h3').html($('ul.slideshow a:first').find('img').attr('title'));
$('#slideshow-caption p').html($('ul.slideshow a:first').find('img').attr('alt'));

function gallery() {

//if no IMGs have the show class, grab the first image
var current = ($('ul.slideshow li.show')?  $('ul.slideshow li.show') : $('#ul.slideshow li:first'));

//Get next image, if it reached the end of the slideshow, rotate it back to the first image
