Hi, I've added this JavaScript to my site;

http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/backbox/

It's working 100% on Safari, Chrome and Firefox. When I try to run it on Internet Explorer it just doesn't work. I click the image I want to view, a white box comes up with the loading bar, but after 5-10 seconds the loading bar goes and a small white box stays. I've left it for a minute to see if it's downloading any files, but it's not (Tested it on my actual .co.uk site)

If anyone could give me a hand I would be very greatful.

Thanks guys.
John

Well, it doesn't come close to working even on the javascriptkit page in MSIE, so why are you surprised it doesn't work in your pages? I've kind of given up on trying to fix javascriptkit stuff. If I find one that happens to work, joy. If not, I go someplace else.

hmm, ok. What kind of script is that called by the way? A lightbox?

Yep. It's a somewhat inaccurate name, because originally it derived from the physical item that is (was) used to view slides (you know, like 35 mm slides? film? ancient history?), but modern "light boxes" have gone far beyond the early efforts.
