    Can't see dropdowns (6.0.26)

    When I go to my company website with any of 20 different computers (other than mine and 1 other), there are lists that open as the cursor passes over them. When I go there with mine it won't do it. I have searched on the net and found other sites, Microsoft for example, that it does work on, but not on my company site. Any hints would be deeply appreciated. The company site is Other computers have the same version of Internet explorer as mine & they work. My computer has XP and the other has Millenium.

    I just went to] ....I have WinME, IE6.0 and the only thing that actually worked - so to speak- was a 'popup' about joining the newsletter for postcardmania. Other than that, nothing 'dropped' down when I ran my mouse over anything. Maybe the security settings that I have are set too high or it's my Norton's Firewall or ?????. Sorry, don't know what else to suggest. Perhaps others have something else they know about why this happens?

    For more info, The green horizontal list across the top of the page, where it says things like: >> sample gallery, is the area I am talking about that should show a mouse over list.

    Try putting it in your Trusted Sites zone and see if that fixes it. I think the only thing you need Enabled for the page to work is Active Scripting, but I only reviewed briefly.

    The mouse over works fine on this computer. Below is the code that runs the "mouse over menus" (excuse the length, but this demonstrates how this works). You will note it is using JavaScript and DHTML. I suspect that one would need to have Active Scripting enabled -- at a minimum -- for this to work. You may want to check with Thomas Bratti if you cannot figure out why this does not work for you.
