    any advice on this script?

    Hi
    I recently acquired a free website template off the net to use. However it came with a little bit of javascript in the code, and frankly I'm not sure what its purpose is, or if its important. Would someone be good enough to tell me if I can safely remove it?
    Thanks
    this is it - <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    function MM_reloadPage(init) { //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
    if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
    else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();
    }
    MM_reloadPage(true);
    // -->
    </script>

    That's Dreamweaver code (tip: the MM_ in the function name does not stand for Mickey Mouse ).

    It's sort of a legacy feature that reloads the page for Netscape 4 browsers. This type of browser had an annoying bug that caused it not to redraw the layout if the browser had been resized under certain (don't ask me which) circumstances. Usually a reload was a counter-measure.

    If you don't target NN4, then you can safely remove this code snippet.
