Trying to get TimelineLite to work but receive the following error: ReferenceError: TimelineLite is not defined.  Here's my script:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

        <script type="text/javascript" src="../assets_shared/scripts/jQuery/jquery-1.7.2.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../assets_shared/scripts/jQuery/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../assets_shared/scripts/gsap/TimelineLite.min.js"></script>

        <script type='text/javascript'>
            // Set all navigation switches to false on page entry

            // Set Navigation switch(es) for this page
            parent.bIsMAIPage = true;
            parent.nInteractions = 6;
            parent.sReqClick = 'a,b,c,d,e,f';

//alert("TimelineLite.version = " + TimelineLite.version);
            var tl = new TimelineLite();


The error triggers on the last line.  I'm using:

downloaded this morning.  No 404 errors   Firebug response header shows:


Accept-Ranges bytes Content-Encoding gzip Content-Length 4224 Content-Type application/x-javascript Date Fri, 06 Dec 2013 19:11:18 GMT Etag "0ccd7ee38e6ce1:0" Last-Modified Wed, 20 Nov 2013 21:39:04 GMT Server Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Vary Accept-Encoding X-Powered-By ASP.NET


Any reasons why I'm getting this error?


Thanks, Ray
