For some strange reason the script has to be the first thing below 
<body>, so I've put it in leftright_top. Furthermore, the js files must 
be placed in the apache document root dir, not in the interchange pages. 
Learning all the time, but sometimes its rather frustrating losing so 
much time on such a trivial thing ;)
Thanks for sharing your thoughts though.
