Hello everyone,

I have a very simple DHTML test page. Basically there is a table cell
setup so that when I mouseover it, a previously hidden <DIV> section
becomes visible. This div section has a link on it to
This setup works just fine on Netscape 7.1 and IE 6 for Windows, but
does NOT work on Netscape 7.1 on Redhat Linux 9, or Mozilla 1.5 on the
same system. By NOT working I mean that the division does become
visible, and mousing over the link does cause the address to show up
on the status bar, but clicking on just hides the division, and does
NOT activate the link to google. The code is included below. Any help
you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Sina Tootoonian

2. Problem with NS 7 - Layout works in IE6, Opera 7 and NS 6


I did a HTML site validating HTML 4.01. The layout works alright in Internet
Explorer 6, Opera 7 and Netscape 6 but it does not display correctly in
Netscape 7 and Mozilla 1.5.
Spaces beetween table rows and within table cells are not correct and I dont
seem to find a failure in my code.
