Carousel widget made for TW frontpage

  1. module width may be flexible but carousel conatiner width needs to be fixed.
  2. control buttons are generated from JS
  3. JS counts position based on item offsetwidth; this widget should be initialized after items are present on stage
  4. orignal YUI carousel lib was too big for frontpage and doesn't cover exactly what we need. the tw carousel js only contains necessary functions and is about 3k after jsMin.
  5. to init: new carousel(moduleId_or_moduleObject [,configobject])
date: 2007
