Smooth and versatile horizontal accordion jQuery script

jQuery_accordion_horizontal Turn an ordinary UL list into a smooth, versatile, and appealing accordion. This is good for showing off new products or featured contents from your site so readers don’t have to dig around for it. LI lists expands sideways on mouse over while contracting its peers. The HTML markup of the accordion can either be defined inline on the page or inside an external file instead. You can also specify which LI you want to have expanded by default and modify it’s appearance to fit your template.

Directions


Step 1:
Under the Layout > Edit HTML tab - insert the following section code below right before the closing head tag – </head>

<link href='haccordion/haccordion.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
<script src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='haccordion.js' type='text/javascript'>

</script>

<style type='text/css'>

/*CSS for example Accordion #hc1*/

#hc1 li{
margin:0 3px 0 0; /*Spacing between each LI container*/
}

#hc1 li .hpanel{
padding: 5px; /*Padding inside each content*/
background: lightblue;
}

/*CSS for example Accordion #hc2*/

#hc2 li{
margin:0 0 0 0; /*Spacing between each LI container*/
border: 12px solid black;
}

#hc2 li .hpanel{
padding: 5px; /*Padding inside each content*/
background: #E2E9FF;
cursor: hand;
cursor: pointer;
}

</style>

<script type='text/javascript'>

haccordion.setup({
    accordionid: &#39;hc1&#39;, //main accordion div id
    paneldimensions: {peekw:&#39;50px&#39;, fullw:&#39;400px&#39;, h:&#39;158px&#39;},
    selectedli: [0, true], //[selectedli_index, persiststate_bool]
    collapsecurrent: false //
})

haccordion.setup({
    accordionid: &#39;hc2&#39;, //main accordion div id
    paneldimensions: {peekw:&#39;30px&#39;, fullw:&#39;450px&#39;, h:&#39;150px&#39;},
    selectedli: [-1, true], //[selectedli_index, persiststate_bool]

hey i tried it and it didn't work.. i tried it with the instructions directly from dynamic drive as well and what i'm having trouble with the part where we're suppose to save the .js documents, do we reupload those somewhere? (blogger doesn't let us directly import it) and in page elements it doesn't let you do an html gadget anymore ):

please help ):
