Bad news, the code you are using utilises the old level 0 DOM so is
designed for IE4 and Netscape 4.

IE 5 and 6 are backwardsly compatable with the old IE4 DOM, but no other 
current browser implement either of them (newer version of mozilla 
partially implement the IE4 model, but not fully)

There is a newer and better way that works with all current browsers, 
called the dom level 1 which was standardised by the w3. Basicly the 
script will need to be rewritten for this - mostly in the include file 

shouldn't be too difficult for someone who knows JS. Pain in the arse 
for someone who doesn't :S
