Just an update that my web site is coming together slowly, could I get some of you to try it out with different browsers if you have them. The likes of Netscape Navigator, opera, IE4 downwards, Mozillla.

I especially need to know if the java script date works in different browsers.

Computer Links (http://liquid2k.com/computerlinks/index.html)

Will be adding more categories and more links soon.

Thanks In advance.

Looks good on MSIE#6 , No script errors, I take it you hand wrote it, found when it validates with (1) HTML tidy, (2) tidy from HTML-kit download from http://www.chami.com/html-kit/ or go to http://validator.w3.org/ and drop you URL in there, then once there are no mistakes, this helps but still there a few things need to be checked out like, Netscape 4.x is the main one,

I just reinstalled windows 98 the other day, so I am still setting things up, and can not check with Netscape just now.

I can't take all credit for writing the script, I got it off the net but changed it slightly that is why I wanted to check it out.

Hey Sam (cool name),
Tried with Opera and looks very clean and tidy, although the green divider (where the date is) does not go right across the page like it does when I view using IE6. Not sure if that is a biggie because I wouldn't have known that it didn't look right until I viewed using IE. Also with Opera the links don't change colour when mouse hovers. Just wondering whether the 'Site of the week' link needs to be image or something. When I first saw it I thought that if was part of the main body text that was somehow right justified.

Looks good, keep up the good work.

Hey sam (it is a cool name isn't it)
Will work on a image for site of the week, did you actually mean an image or just the words 'site of the week' flashed up a bit like the tittle?

Working on one at the moment, will submit a couple in a few days so you guys can give your opinions.

Just tried it on Netscape 6.2 and it worked like a dream.

It is a good looking website I will keep an eye on it in the future.
Well done

Sorry did make my self clear.
What I meant that without actually reading any text and at first glance the words "site of the week" (top right, not bold text lower down) look like they should be part of the main body. Once I looked a little longer it was clear that it was a link. As you are already planning an image there then that wont be a problem once that is done.

I think all the category spelling mistakes are fixed now, or was that catagory??? :):)

I am currently trying to figure out the opera problems, keep an eye out for a huge addition to the online stores page within the next week or two.

Fine looking site. My opinion tho is that it's a shame it is so script heavy, coz it won't work thru my firewall.

There are a few more links that you might like to include on my own site at www.mis.co.nz/links.

Keep up the good work.

(viewed it in Netscape 4.75, and it appeared just fine with f/w switched off)

Hi again Sam H,

Might be a good idea to check this site out:

Thanks for all the help you have been giving me guys, Sam m if you could check the mouse overs with opera again to see if there working now I would appreciate it. Sal, have a look at this HTML forum,

Ask the web design group (http://www.htmlhelp.com/bbs/)

Not sure of any scripting ones, but just do a search on yahoo or google and you should get the results your looking for.

I also found this site with free scripts if any one is interested, I'm currently using their text counter because my previous counter was slowing things up.

Hey guys I've put together a couple of simple site of the week, tell me which one you like best and/or what changes I should make to it.

SOTW pic 1 (http://liquid2k.com/computerlinks/pics/sotw1.gif)

This will go in place of the top right text that says 'site of the week'.
