Why does ie give me an 'object expected' error when I use the window.open() function?

P: 5
I am using the window.open() function to open a music player from my website. It works perfectly in firefox and chrome but ie is giving me an 'object expected' error.

Here's my code, and you can access it at
www.oceanmanmusic.com/audio.html

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript1.2">
function openwindow1()
{
window.open("triparoundtheworld.html","mywindow",
"menubar=1,resizable=1,width=333,height=333");
}
</SCRIPT>

<a href="javascript: openwindow1()">
<img src="images/photos/triparoundtheworld.gif"/>
</a>

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,
Brad

I did some testing on my machine, and the reason is because of the <object> tag.

Any reason you're using this in the first place? It's not a widely supported element, and typically only works in IE. At any rate, your structuring of the element is incorrect.

Check out this site: ->here<-

I'd remove the <object> tags all together. You shouldn't notice any difference at all.
