Okay so I know that the browsers are supposed to be standards compliant and we all know this is a load of nonsense.

Does anyone know where I can get the object models for different browsers ie Netscape, IE etc.

The reason I ask is because I have a really cool javascript but the error messages getting returned are extremely vague. So i have a hunch about something but this can only be confirmed by looking at the model.

I don't need the API just the interface for javascript proccessing and object's available to js.

Any ref's would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I can't give you any url's, but I swear by the O'reilly definitive guide. It's probably the best Javascript reference book out there IMO. And it's huge! Iit's got all the functions, standard and browser-specific, with details on browser version support. Definately worth a look if you intend to do any javascript. Personnally I have found all of the O'Reilly books I have looked at to be good, but this one particularly so.

(I know the UK amazon is no use to you, but thats what's in my favourites).

Maybe someone could help if you post some code and/or the errors?

No I don't think anyone can help - sniff,sniff

Just found out that Netscape 6 and higher don't support the Layer object and that is why I am getting the error message.

Thanks for the input I will def go and check it out.

Online resources would be better though if anyone else knows any?

Books are freaking expensive this side of the world. Take what you would pay for it and multiple it by twelve and then add a 100% markup to it :x
