The problem here is the way the menu is written.
Html for the menu is generated and then written using the following:
(It's near the end of the showMenu function in menu.js if you're interested)

  if (document.all)

document.all will be false for mozlla, and so document.layers is used, which is
what the standards contain, (and not what mozilla uses).
The page will work if this is added before the 'else':
else if (document.getElementById)

Oops. I missed out a 'not' in my previous comment.
I should have said that document.layers is not what the standards contain.

Thanks for the detailed information! :) I'll try to contact the webmaster of the

site seems dead
Comment 9 User image Matthias Dahl 2001-09-28 12:24:48 PDT
Indeed the company has gone out of business - like so many in the past few month
unfortunately. :(
Comment 10 User image Doron Rosenberg (IBM) 2001-09-29 10:06:08 PDT
invalid then (fixed is kinda futile if the site is dead).
Comment 11 User image z-aillon.c-obsolete2 2001-09-29 11:15:01 PDT
See what happens when people don't use standards compliant pages?  Less people
are able to access their site and spend money on all the web goodies they

I wonder if we can market that for our evangelism campaign...  heh :)

Verifying INVALID - site doesn't exist.
