How do I use DHTML and Javascript on same page?

DHTML scripts stops JS from working...

I am using this javascript [ukhotmovies.com] to slide-in some text from the side of the screen on my webpages e.g. the gif image which says 'Reviews' at the top of this page [ukhotmovies.com].

I am trying to use DHTML scripts to create pop-ups because more and more people are using pop-up killers; I have heard that such DHTML pop-ups are not blocked by these pop-up killers.

The scripts work fine on pages without the javascript I mentioned above, but when I use them on pages with the script, it shows the DHTML pop-up but not the image sliding in from the side of the browser. An example is on this test page [ukhotmovies.com].

I have tried to use various DHTML scripts, but they all disable my slide-in javascript. Ones I've used include this [dynamicdrive.com], this [joetec.net] and this [dynamicdrive.com].

Is there a reason why the slide-in javascript doesn't work when I add DHTML pop-ups?

How can I resolve this issue please? I'd like to be able to use both the JS and the DHTML.

Thank you.

DHTML and "normal" JS should work just fine together. Maybe you have conflicting function names?

dhtml and javascript are the same thing ... there is something wrong with your "cut" and "pasting" : )

Thank you guys. Was an onload conflict.

I appreciate the advice.

Two more points:

(1) Anybody got a pop-up killer installed? Do you see the drop-in box on this page [ukhotmovies.com]? Can you click on the ad and go the relevant page OK?

(2) How would I add a thin black border to the DHTML drop-in code? I have tried various permutations of the border command to no avail. Here's the line I need to add to:

<div id="dropin" style="position:absolute;visibility:hidden;left:350px;top:500px;width:328px;height:275px;background-color:#1D418B;">
