Hi Colin,

Looking at your code, the first thing I notice is all the nested
tables...  Netscape 4.x *hates* nested tables, more than 2-deep and
you're in big trouble.  (and I can see sections that seem to go 4- or

Also within your fnChange() function, you've not allowed for NS4.x's
DOM...  (although maybe that's been removed cos you're redirecting these
users anyway?)  but doc.getElementById & doc.all won't work in NS4.x

The page looks lovely in Netscape 6.2 & Mozilla though...  maybe you
should change your "best viewed in IE..." to include these?
