Right, the thing that isn't working about it is that it is supposed  
to show different images than the ones it does - the ones that it  
looks up with the sparql queries.
The alerts it pops up are there on purpose, though perhaps I should  
remove them. The intention was to show what the queries and responses  
were.

The place where it is dying is on the eval of the json results. Json  
comes back as a string (seen in the 3rd and 4th alerts), and you call  
the javascript function "eval" to turn the string into a data  
structure. For some reason this works in Safari but fails in the  
other browsers.

If it was working correctly you would see two black expression  
images, instead of one stained and one expression image.
