I have recently installed MSIE3.02 (and subsequently the 128 Browser) only to find that at certain sites I receive the "Microsoft JScript Runtime Error" message.  I have removed and reinstalled the application, checked the system calendar, and called AOL Technical Support.  No one has been able to give much help.  What's going on?

MIE 3.02 support only very limited subset of JavaScript 1.0
Meanwhile many pages oriented to browsers which support
JavaScript 1.1 at least, (and it work in MIE4, NN3 and NN4)
and do not take care about MIE3.x users. This isn't your browser problem, but web-programmers innacuracy.
I'd suggest you to install MIE4 instead :)
This one support JavaScript 1.2, as usaul for Microsoft products with some differences from original JavaScript1.2 specifications. But incompatibility will be rare enough with this one.
For my opinion most of the sites do not take care
about JavaScript 1.0 browsers now, since MIE4 and NN4 released
MIE3 already in past.
