    		GetElements.sP=function(x,y){this.style.right=x;this.style.top=y;};
    		GetElements.x = Xloc;
    		GetElements.y = ns ? pageYOffset + innerHeight : document.body.scrollTop + document.body.clientHeight;
    		GetElements.y -= Yloc;
    		return GetElements;
    	}
    	window.LoCate_XY=function()
    	{
    		var pY = ns ? pageYOffset + innerHeight : document.body.scrollTop + document.body.clientHeight;
    		ftlObj.y += (pY - Yloc - ftlObj.y)/15;
    		ftlObj.sP(ftlObj.x, ftlObj.y);
    		setTimeout("LoCate_XY()", 10);
    	}
    	ftlObj = SetMenu("Floater");
    	LoCate_XY();

    layers don't validate in html4-try an html3 doctype, or leave it off if you insist on them.
    Somebody must still be using Netscape 4...

    I found that doctype tag awhile ago and had too much trouble with it.

    I only start with this now;
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

    Using a full valid doctype (which btw ruben you aren't) you must use units when specifying values such as top, left, height, and width.

    Well, seeing as I saw that menu script on another site (can't find it now) and they had thier own copyright info on it, and the script is obviously copied and slightly modified version of the DD script I am not sure how you can call it "my floating menu".

    Anyway, seeing as that is a way old script and one I no longer promote, here is a fix :-
    Change this line
    Code:
    GetElements.y = ns ? pageYOffset + innerHeight : document.body.scrollTop + document.body.clientHeight;
    to this
    Code:
    GetElements.y = ns ? pageYOffset + innerHeight  : document.documentElement && document.documentElement.scrollTop ? 
    		document.documentElement.scrollTop  + document.documentElement.clientHeight  : document.body.scrollTop + document.body.clientHeight;

    OK, I found that the menu comes from here so I guess you got a web templeate from them ?
    http://www.allwebco-templates.com/su...t_floating.htm

    You might want to contact them with the updated Float Menu script that now works with DOCTYPE.
