    Is there an issue where mac browsers and win browsers handle JS differently?? The mac IE processes the script but it doesn't go to the the next page. Anybody familiar with this problem?? All help is appreciated.

        Problem on Mac IE 5 only!

        Here is a very Simple test page that works on all browsers on all target platforms except on Mac IE 5. The result on mac ie 5 is a blank html page. Works great on all netscape browsers tested on all platforms tested.

        Can someone please give me help on the differences between IE for windows and mac in relationship to javascript so I can debug.



        here is the html pagecode:

        <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
        <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
        <meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">


        <SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "javascript">
        function openwindow (mywindow){

        <p><a href="javascriptpenwindow('http://www.colsoncaster.com/metric.html')">Test metric converter</a></p>

          If you move your script block inside the <head> tags it works fine.

          This script--

          document.write("Test text">;

          works fine inside the body. It appears that Mac IE is particular about where it looks for functions.
