i have been working on a short javascript that works fine when the page is opened by itself, but i intended it to be loaded into an iframe, that is in a layer in another htm doc. the problem is when i use the function when its loaded the way i want it (in the iframe in the layer in the other htm doc) the function executes fine, but leaves the cursor in a waiting state when its over the page/iframe/layer. this happens in IE (tested in version 5.00.3315.1000). it seems to work fine in NN 6.1 of all things. is this just possibly a IE bug of sorts?

here is the script:

function _1974(a,b,c,d,x)
{
document.getElementById(x).src = 'selectionbeadclicked.gif';
{
window.open (a,b,"width="+c+",height="+d+",menubar=0,resizable=0,scrollbars=0,status=1,titlebar=0,toolbar=0,left=0,top=0");
}
}

the x var just changes a small icon on the page to another one so you can track links that have been clicked.

here is how i am calling the function

<a href="javascript:_1974('3dworx/example.htm','Ex1a','640','480','1a');" >
<img id="1a" src="selectionbeadunclicked.gif" width="10" height="18" border="0" ></a>

can someone please check this... i can post an example from my site if that would help

TIA
