IE 6.0 vs Opera

I have converted to Menu V5.0 and am now having problems with IE 6.0 getting error messages and not in other browsers.

My url is http:///

The index loads fine. But when I go to the "Rules and Forms" menu and then to the sub-menu "Legion" I get an error. Not in Opera. The error message states line 11, character 12, expected ";". I do not know what file is the problem, since it works fine in Opera.

Just 2 // in your link - /// makes it a bit tough on the browser... :)

What exactly are you doing with this...
<!--var baseurl="";

Whatever, I don't believe that syntax is correct.

Also, technically, the aI statements should look like this...
aI("text=Legion;url=/alb_rules.htm;status=2003 Rules;separatorsize=1;");

Note you are missing 2 ; at the end.

I don't have IE6 to look at your page, but the specific error you mentioned is running fine in OS X/Safari (as is everything else).

BTW, thank you for licensing the menu!

Hey Bob,

Nice to visit the ol' American Legion Baseball site again... you're just a menu monger aren't you!

I think that the problem is not with the menu, but with that particular page itself. The ab_rules.htm file has a minor error on line 10. Change
// **


and see if that fixes it.

Hope that helps,

Thanks for your input. The "baseurl" was commented out. It was a hold over from the old Ver 3 menu.

The problem existed within the "Comments". Not the correct syntax for comments. IE Browser thought they were some type of commands. Opera did not care and ignored.

Things are back to normal.
