How do I view javascript errors in Internet Explorer?

P: n/a
I am writing a javascript page. There is an error with the pagee, and
it does not work. Internet Explorer gives a message on the status bar
that there is a javascript error, but it doesn't tell me what the error
is. Is there some setting in IE that allows for more explanation of
whats wrong?
(I also have netscape 6, and it also doesn't tell me whats wrong).

If you double click on that little icon in the status bar, you will
get more details about the error.

Netscape 6 sucks. Upgrade to at least 7. Better yet, upgrade to
Firefox and use its JavaScript console.

Double click the yellow ! and it will show the error.
