Hi All

I did meet a probleme too with netscape 6 
I was loading a function in the body tag with the onload="" and ns6 wasn't
doing anything I did lost a day, before I found what was wrong 
the trick to solve that was to call my function like that

if (bw.ns6&&bw.mac){
ps: that bug was only on ns6 mac

Of course I forgot to add the solution: first change the overflow to visible

or hidden, then change the display, then change back the overflow.
