Advances to the next slide with a call to changeSlide().

Simulates an onMouseOver event to cause the next unhighlighted image in the slide menu to rollover to the highlighted images. This happens with a call to imageSwap(). Here are lines 200-204.

 
function automate() {
  imageSwap(slideShow[curSlide].name, curSlide, false);
  changeSlide(1);
  imageSwap(slideShow[curSlide].name, curSlide, true);
  }
