Hi Gene. Chapter 5 is submitted here. After watching the FAQ tutorial crash for an hour (it hid every h2 and answer on opening), I switched to the jQuery library supplied with McFarland's download and the code worked. I had been using the jQuery library from the Google CDN server, version 1.9.1. Someone much smarter will have to explain. Thanks.

@Mike, the links provided by google's CDN server will only work when uploaded to a server. If it didn't work while you were testing on your local computer, that would explain your problem.
To test locally, you could change the link to
Then change it back to the following when you upload to the server

Google's version without the http: protocol prefix allows the browser to choose the protocol, so the same code will also work in an https: secure page. However, when testing locally the browser chooses the file: protocol prefix, which will not reach Google's site.

Hi Gene,

Here are my Chapter 05 exercises:­

The FAQ one had me stymied for a while until I realized that fadein and fadeIn are different and only the later one works! It didn't dawn on me that the function name was case sensitive...

@David @Dennis -- Nice work. Yeah, that's the value of typing this stuff in -- you learn how things work when they don't work.
