Oy. I'm stumped. I'm using Included Content for my main menu (java applets providing bells and whistles) and Netscape Nav is hanging up when users access the site. :roll:

Any ideas?

My first idea would be don't use Frontpage! *smiles -- just kidding, but seriously, Frontpage is set up to code for IE, and it really doesn't give a crap about Mozilla-based browsers.

If I had to take a guess, it's probably using the Applet tag. Applet is deprecated, and I'm guessing Netscape doesn't like it any more. Try using Object instead.

Dont listen to him, FrontPage is great once you learn how to master it! I use Frontpage on all my sites and I have never had a complaint yet! (and they all work in all browsers!!)

Java can be tetchy with some users its not just Netscape but yes Netscape is a big pain in the butt when it comes to design. You may be to rethink how your using it in your site now and come up with some alternative ways to do it so its browser friendly to all.

*sticks tongue out at musik. I know Frontpage is good, and so is Dreamweaver....but neither will teach someone to write real code if they use the WYSIWYG features.!

Yeah, they are both very different programs and both offer good and bad bits. Dreamweaver is good if thats your thing, as with FrontPage, it just depends on what your wanting to get out of it :D
