Help! Netscape Trouble with Javascript

Hi,

I hope this problem I ran into has an easy fix.

I created a menu bar for my page using Sothink DHTML Menu 4.1 which
created javascript file. I also add a small slide show on the page
using javascript and the javascript is embedded in this page's HTML.

Everything works perfectly with IE. However, Netscape (4, 6, 7) can't
see the menu bar created in DHTML when the slideshow javascript is
present.

If I just have the menu bar or slideshow alone on the page, Netscape can
see it, but it seems that Netscape always ignores the DHTML script when
both javascripts are present. Not sure what is going.

I have tried to put the slideshow javascript in the .js file that has
the DHTML code for menu bar, but it didn't work either.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Terry

Sounds like conflicting variables or perhaps the files are named the
same...

However, it's all only guessing unless you supply a URL.

The answer is simple, my young apprentice.

The Javascript object "filters" is not supported by Netscape. In fact,
"filters" is IE only. If you plan on using it, you're going to have to
disable it for non IE browsers. Netscape sees this unknown object and
barfs, causing your menu to stop functioning as well.


Is "barfs" a technical term?
