Menu bound to a table and Netscape 4.X shows a blank page

I have a menu working in all browsers and being bound to a cell of a table with the Placemenu function.

The problem is that Netscape 4.7x displays a blank page, view source option shows all the HTML. If I remove the place menu call the page is displayed, without the menu.

Source for the palce menu call is :

<table bgcolor="#000000" width="687" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<td width="16"><img src="images/space.gif" width="16" height="20" alt=""></td>
<td width="21" bgcolor="#cccccc"><img src="images/space.gif" width="21" height="1" alt=""></td>
<td width="634" bgcolor="#cccccc" align="left"><TABLE valign="634" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><TR><TD><script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">PlaceMenu("mainmenu");</script>&nbsp;</TD></TR></TABLE></td>
<td width="16"><img src="images/space.gif" width="16" height="1" alt=""></td>

I have also tried having no widths applied to the hosting TD and table, but that does not seem to work.

Any suggestions/help is appreciated.

I think the problem may be unrelated to the menus. That version of NS is finicky about closing HTML tags. Look at your page overall and see if there might be a missing </DIV> or </TABLE> or other structural end-tag. NS will just sit there showing a blank screen in this case, even though you can see your entire page when you View>Source.


same problem

I get the same problem as the person in the first post. I did miss a couple tags so now i can see my content, however, now i cant see the menu in NS 4.79...all other browsers work fine, and when i viewed source, everything was present.

Can you post a URL so we can see what's happening and try to figure it out?
