[thelist] cheesy javascript not working

OK, first of all, I am a total Javascript dunce. While I know my way 
around HTML well enough to hand code and fix errors and validate and so 
on, I have to depend completely on canned javascript. In this case from 
GoLive 6 - Mac OSX. I have a site that I inherited that was done on 
some WYSIWYG generator and it was a mess. Now most pages are valid 
XHTML and they work pretty well.

Here is the trouble. My client wanted a popup on the first page - one 
that slides in view when the page loads. OK, fine. I had the action in 
GoLive and it works fine in every Mac browser I test it in: IE, 
Mozilla, Safari. But it simply will not work in IE6 Win98 or XP. I have 
rebuilt the page a few times thinking there was some odd glitch but no 

I wish I wasn't such a script moron, but there it is. Any help amongst 
the experts?
