Review this "show/hide layers" script for errors and cross browser compatibility
Thank you very much for your time, I am self taught and trying to finish this page of my project site quickly. Your help is very much appreciated!
Permissions issues like that arise for two reasons:
(1) You are doing something that violates the browser's sense of security. Typically, trying to access something like an ActiveX component (IE only) or Java component.
(2) You run an HTML page in the browser using the *FILENAME* and *not* using a web server. That is, "c:\test\foo.html" or "file://c:\test\foo.html". When you do that, you *automatically* bypass the normal permission checks so IE first asks you if you are sure you want to take a chance on what, for all IE knows, was a virus page you downloaded from the 'net and are now trying to run as "trusted". [You can avoid seeing this message by running IIS web server on your machine and then using "http://localhost/foo.html"--when using the http protocol, the normal browser safety mechanisms kick in.]
