    I am using a very simple DHTML code to retrieve the navigation for all my pages, it's great.

    It looks like this:

    <object type="text/x-scriptlet" width="100" height="250" data="data.htm">
    </object>

    But it doesn't show the content in NS. Do any of you know where I could get/edit a code that is cross browser?
    Or should I just put a label on my site saying: "Doesn't work in Netscape, download Internet Explorer!"

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> Oh, you don't really want to do that, now do you? It's probably just the frustration talking. Probably the best thing is to find a script that is cross browser compatible.

    Netscape doesn't support scriplets of any kind. It just isn't in its vocabulary. Even the code is cross-browser compatible it won't work in Netscape. You need to either link it in properly or insert the code within the page.

    If it isn't cross-browser then you can find some at one of many cut and paste javascript sites including www.dynamicdrive.com/.

    I really hope in the near future Netscape will do something about this. Oh, yeah I found the script at dynamic drive and there weren't others. Why don't people just use the best browsing software? Instead of protesting by using Netscape.

    Uhm... There are people who use Linux (like myself) and Netscape is the only real (free) browser for this OS.

    Yeah, it does the same as SSI's. Should I use a .Js file instead? Or doesn't that work either in Netscape?

    Going back to my original response. Yes you need to link it in as a .js file if you want Netscape to see it.
