    Horizontal scolling bug (6.0 and earlier)

    (Edited by Leif to make link live - see the quick guide)

    My Web page reveals an apparent bug in Internet Explorer. The page uses links from a small index graphic to another which is too large to fit on the computer screen, slicing the larger graphic so each section can have a different bookmark to which to go (and so the slices, which are transparent GIFs, can have different background colors as a navigation aid). Then the larger image has links back to the smaller one so the user can get back to it. Vertical scolling and scrolling to the right to a bookmark work OK in IE but scrolling back to the left to a bookmark does not. The smaller image is left partway off the left side of the screen. What's to do about this? All the scrolling works perfectly in Netscape Navigator 4.72.

    Re: Horizontal scolling bug (6.0 and earlier)

    I noticed that links back to the lower half of the small map - bookmarked 'smallmap2' - seem to work OK.
    Links back to the top half - bookmarked 'smallmap1' - do not.
    So, I downloaded the main page and had a quick look using FrontPage and according to it you have TWO bookmarks named 'smallmap1'
    Could that have something to do with it?<blockquote><hr>

    <FONT size=4>Click in the <font color=red><A name=smallmap1>small keymap below</A></font color=red> or on links in the text of the <A
    href="">Guide to the
    Map</A> to view the corresponding part of the full-scale map. Your
    browser may take you only to the target row; then scroll to the
    right using the keyboard or mouse. <A
    href="">Click here for more
    complete instructions</A>, especially if the background of the maps
    does not have pink, yellow, green and blue panels or if the map
    displays very slowly when scrolling. <A
    href="">An alternate version of
    this page with maps that have plain white backgrounds</A> is
    available if you prefer.
