Maybe it would be a nice idea to first remove the CSS errors and the js
errors too.

The Magic 8-Ball^W^W^W JavaScript Console says: "You are not declaring your
variables. You should declare them using the `var' keyword."

<URL:http://jibbering.com/faq/#FAQ4_43>

"Does not work" is a useless error description [psf 4.11]. And I am not
particularly inclined to help someone who is abusing IANA's[1] example.com
domain anyway; sending mail to ab***@individual.net is something that
crosses my mind instead.

"but not in Explorer" isn't enough information for me to want to bother to
look
at it. Can you do better?


yes, sorry, okay here we go:
The image changes its size when resizing the browser good in Firefox but not
in IE. In IE there's just no image displayed, why not? Thank you!

Okay, I removed the CSS and HTML ones but I'm looking for the Javascript
ones, that's why I asked my question...

Hm, it returns only css errors but
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/v...usermedium=all
shows that everything is okay so I don't really know if I can trust this
'Javascript' Console...

It works (means it displays the same layout) under FF 1.5 and IE 6.0

Did you fix it? Or what exactly your problem?

P.S. Also why do you need images for such plain buttons? You could use
styling right on links. Just a suggestion.

OK, here is one:

If jigsaw doesn't report an error.
Mozilla reports an error.

Trust Mozilla. After all, it is the one that has to *display* the
document and if it says it doesn't like something, then bet it doesn't
like it.
Thank you!


Welcome.
Besides, what does "not in IE" mean? Explain the error because saying it
"doesn't work" is about as useful towards finding a solution as me
saying "It's in your code" is useful as an answer.

No, see the image on the right side (the gradient) in FF 1.5? it is gonns be
resized if you're resizing your browser window... but IE 6.0 doesn't show
it at all... :(

P.S. Also why do you need images for such plain buttons? You could use
styling right on links. Just a suggestion.


No, I can't, check what it's doing when you press the mouse button...how
could I do that with CSS?

But I can't really read it, it says like:

if I enter [http://www.inetgate.ch/design.htm] and press [Evaluate]
it shows:
syntax error
http://www.inetgate.ch/design.htm
http://www.inetgate.ch/design.htm

what does that mean???
Thank you!

Well, yes, okay i have some buttons and on the right hand side of these
there is a gradient from blue to white (in FF) which reses itself when
resizing the window but only in FF, IE doesn't display it at all... :(
Why not?

Did you bother reading the URL I posted? It explains, quite well, that
IE does not support the PNG Format and that is why you do not see the
image in IE.

<url: http://www.petitiononline.com/msiepng/ >
<quote>
The PNG image format was designed to be a replacement for the GIF
format, due to both copyright and design problems with GIF. However, the
latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) still does not have
full and proper support for the image format

What 'doesn't work'? Are you referring to the blue line on the top
right after the 'contact' link that in Firefox extends to the right but
doesn't in IE?

Have a look at the HTML generated for right.png by a script element and
document.write. It generates (in IE):

<IMG height=20 alt=right src="images/right.png" width=NaN>
Note that the width attribute has an invalid value. In Firefox (for me)
it generates:

<img src="images/right.png" alt="right" height="20" width="418">
I think the real issue is trying to use JavaScript to do what should be
done with CSS. Ask in comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets to
get help with that.

Yes, correct...

why NaN?

in Firefox it's running cleanly 'n correctly, like excpected

I can try, asking there... But I'm interested in the IE issue anyway, I'd
appreciate if you'd be able to help me!
Thank you!
