Object Required Error

Hi, great menu! I am receiving a small problem though when users come in through a link other than the menu. When this happens, they receive an error (at http://www.sqlservercentral.com):

Line 16
Object Required

Any ideas? My code looks like this:
<head>
<!--Start menu jscript-->

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="/include/milonic_src.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<script language=JavaScript>
if(ns4)_d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=/include/mmenuns4.js><\/scr"+"ipt>");
else _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=/include/mmenudom.js><\/scr"+"ipt>");
</script>
</head>

<!--Inside the table-->
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="/include/menu_data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<!--end menu jscript-->

<!--Start left menu jscript-->
<script>
with(milonic=new menuname("Main Menu")){
style=menuStyle;
top=155;
left=200;
alwaysvisible=1;
orientation="vertical";
overfilter="";
position="relative";
aI("text=Home;url=http://www.sqlservercentral.com/;status=Back To Home Page;");
aI("text=Resources;showmenu=Resources;");
aI("text=Articles;showmenu=Articles;");
aI("text=About Us;showmenu=About Us;");
aI("text=My Account;showmenu=My Account;");
aI("text=Search;url=http://www.sqlservercentral.com/siteSearch/search.asp;status=Search;");
}
drawMenus();

</script>
<!--end menu jscript-->

I am quite confused by...

What, exactly, do you mean, and what is the error they get?

Also, a few minor things...

You didn't close the <td> that has the Main Menu script in it (that actually might not be so minor depending on the browser).

A little below the script you have &nbsp&nbsp, rather than &nbsp;&nbsp;.

Seeing it as an Error alert popup. I have Visual Studio installed and when I choose
debug it points to

_h=_gm.offsetHeight

in the last (really long unwrapped line) in mmenudom.js


Fixed the lack of </TD> issue. It also appears to only be appearing in the registered version. I have downloaded it prior to this and the demo version didn't have this issue.

Also, scratch the comment "I am receiving a small problem though when users come in through a link other than the menu.". It seems to be happening anytime. WHen I refresh, it goes away for that one page and session.

Sorry, I loaded the demo version back up again and still having the problem. That clue was a false-positive.

I think I have it fixed! It seems like this statement was a requirement and it would throw the error otherwise.

The <div> is not a requirement, but...

Not too much to ask.

Did you try placing in the body instead of the head?
It looks like html, if it was xhtml then use CDATA, I put a copy of it in the bug section.

Also the script should go in body.

If that doesn't work, there is another post of a table where she put the submenu before the menu. Not sure what thats about, but your submenus are going under a layer.
