Javascript doesn't seem to work in IE

P: 5

I'm trying to change from laying out the pages on my site in html tables to using css and javascript to make them more interactive. I'm working in the dark, pretty much, using snippets of code created by other people, and customising them to fit my site.

I now have a layout that looks and works OK in Safari and Firefox. I'm working on a Mac. I've just checked the sample page in Internet Explorer (5.2 for Mac) and although the layout seems right, the script that pulls content into the middle of the page isn't working properly. It loads the default content OK, but then when you click the other navigation tabs to load the alternative information, it loads it as a separate page, rather than in the container. Then if you use the browser 'back' button to go back to the proper page, the middle area is empty apart from the message " Requesting content..."

This is the url of the page:

The bits of code that are in the source of the page are:
(in the head)
<script type="text/javascript" src="ajaxtabs.js">

Thank you - Do you think it is an IE5 thing? Or a Mac/IE issue?

I've checked my webstats, and about 5% of visitors are using IE5 with a pc, while the number using mac and ie5 is too small to register. So if it is only affecting the page viewed on a mac with ie5, I can live with that, but I wouldn't want to alienate 5% of the visitors...

Thanks again for any more feedback!
