Hi. On my web site I allow the user to find text in the main frame. That is, search for text and if found, scroll it into view. For IE, I use the following:

if (IE) {
txt = win.document.body.createTextRange();
// Find the nth match from the top of the page.
found = txt.findText(str)
for (i = 0 ; i < n && found ; i++) {
txt.moveStart("character", 1);
txt.moveEnd("textedit");
found = txt.findText(str)
}
// If found, mark it and scroll it into view.
if (found) {
txt.select();
txt.scrollIntoView();
n++ ; return true
}
}

For Netscape 4 users, win.find() in a while loop works perfectly. But Netscape 6 doesn't have find(). Question. Is there a NS6 equalvalent to find()? Or there a DOMII equalvalent to findText/MoveStart?

Any advice would be appreciated...Dennis
