Works fine for me.

You could also supress those errors.

window.onerror = null

or if you need something a little stronger

window.onerror = doNothing

function doNothing() {return true} // Or is it return false?

u guys totally lost me...

before the page loads, while on the right there is still the Loading... please wait message, quickly place the mouse over the menu in the middle and click one of the links...
u will notice that the page freezes... if you do not click on the menu, the page works fine, on the contrary, if you do click on one of the links... ERROR!!!
the error is quite obvious, the scroll script does not initialise quickly enough...
i tried to hide everything and add an onLoad show everything, but i didn't quite make it work...
i was thinking about moving the layers off screen and making them move in place onLoad...
anyone here know a script that does this?
icklepix once used a script like that on his site, if i remember it right...

anyway... help!!! please!

You could try the above suggestions and/or you could build some error checking into the scripts to check for page objects.

ie check to make sure that the objects exist before initialising scroll. I had the same problem with a script which used two frames. mouse over a link in one frame would give a description in the other. I just used something like

if (parent.navFrame.document.getElementById('info')!=null) {
//The script here
}

to check that the div layer 'info' existed before trying to write to it.

placing the script after the </body> did not help...

andy_j
could u try and explain to me exactly how to do that... ??? because i get the idea, but i do not know enough code in order to write it by myself...
so could u take a look at the page's code and tell me how to modify it?

please...
