View Full Version : IE 5 (mac) displays scripts as a text list from top left corner- scripts dont work!

08-26-2002, 06:49 PM
In every site I visit that employs some form of
DHTML or Javascript navigation menu, the
text in those menus show up as a long list
aligned to the left of the window and then at
the bottom of the list the actual site appears,
minus the functional scripts. I'm on IE5
for Macintosh and I have scripting enabled,
java, etc...everything seems to be checked
that should be checked in preferences.

Here is a screenshot:


Is this just because IE5 for Macs can't handle
any of these scripts yet? Is there a place (I
checked on dynamicdrive.com and couldn't
seem to find one) that has scripts for functional
navigation menus like this one:


that will work for IE5/Mac?

I appreciate all/any help and I hope I've
provided enough information without boring
everyone! :)

Maybe the Mac guru's don't know what to say. Even with stylesheets OFF, scripting OFF and plugins disabled I can visit ibill.com and surf their site, almost without noticing there's something wrong. I've never seen something like what's on your screenshot. Mac, 8.6, IE 5.
Most dhtml menu's I see function without any errors. They also do in Os 8.1. And I've just no clue what's happening in your Mac. It's not a lack of dhtml support of the browser causing this.

i've even re-installed the browser software,
and i'm on 9.2...i have no idea why it doesn't
work either, and thats what's so frustrating.

thanks for the input though.
