From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-ac2 i686; en-US; 0.8.1)
BuildID:    2001040409

The JavaScript driven menu at http://www.musicplay.de/ doesn't load. It keeps on
displaying that it is loading but nothing happens.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Surf to http://www.musicplay.de/



Actual Results:  Menu at the left side isn't loaded (keeps on showing "Lade
Menü..").

Expected Results:  Menu should be loaded (works perfect with Netscape 4.7x).

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['men'].innerHTML=code;
  }
  else
  {
    x=document.layers.men_layer.document;
    x.open();
    x.write(code);
    x.close();
  }

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)
{
    document.getElementById('men').innerHTML=code;
}

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

Indeed the company has gone out of business - like so many in the past few month
unfortunately. :(
invalid then (fixed is kinda futile if the site is dead).

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
sell/provide.

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