    I'm creating a web page using some JavaScript in it. I load the page in IE and it works and looks fine but when i load the page in Netscape it searches for all the images and everything and says "Document: Done" but nothing is there.

    What could be causing this problem. I'm pretty sure it isn't coding errors since it works in IE.

    Thanks,
    Cody

    <<< ~Cody~ Better response for JavaScript questions in the Client Side Scripting Forum - moved from Web Page Design...WebKat, Senior Advisor>>>


    BTW - What's the URL for the page that you are having problems with? Would help to see the script to see if it is just another Netscape incompatibility or something else to consider...

    Hi bigscripts,

    I've only glanced at the url, but...

    Just because something works in one browser does not guarantee that it will work in another.

    For example, <IFRAME> is microsoft's answer to netscape's <LAYER>/<ILAYER> tags, which means any code that uses it will never work for netscape

    If I get a chance, I'll look at it more closely later this weekend. In the meantime, you can try isolating the problem code by inserting <!-- --> comment tags around blocks of code. Eventually something will pop up and whatever is inside the comment tags is causing the problem.

    Is there a limit in Netscape on how many JavaScripts can be on a page?

    I thought maybe if you put too many on a page it wouldn't work.

    Anyway, I tried redoing the whole code and now it works. Thanks for your help.

    Just a side note on this...

    Frequently when you see a page apparently loading in Netscape, but then get a blank or incomplete page, the problem is Netscape's intolerance of improperly paired, nested, or unclosed <table> or <div> tags.

    Whilst IE will cheerfully accept such errors and display the page anyway, Netscape will generally balk.
