Eia -

I can almost guarantee that if you have a javascript clock running in the frame, this is source of your problems.

Check if it has the statment "settimeout=..." in the script. You can find this by pressing F10 in dreamweaver, to see the source, then look for the red highlighted text down the page with <script language="JavaScript"> or <script language="JavaScript1.2"> etc. Sorry if this is dumbed down, but i don't know you level of expertise.

The only way for a clock to keep the current time is with the "settimeout=" part, which basically means that this particular javascript is running itself, not letting the other javascripts run.

I have the best solution for this is to put the clock its own seperate frame, so that it doesn't effect the other scripts.

I hope this helps

Its really hard to answer this question as you haven't given much inforamtion on the problem a copy of the HTML vode as it stands at present would be nice as it would help us a lot more to look at the problem as a whole because we can't see what and how you have tried to place these scripts but just as a guide line here are a few pointers on how to layout you scripts based on the fact that the scripts are being called when the page loads.  Hope this is of some help

In the header write the c script in the following layout:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

function MM_FIRST JAVASRIPT()
coding for javascript goes here.....

function MM_SECOND JAVASCRIPT()
coding for javascript goes here.....

function MM_THIRD JAVASCRIPT()
coding for javascript goes here.....
     
//-->
</script>


THEN in the <Body> Tag place the code in this format:

<Body onLoad="MM_FIRST JAVASCRIPT ();MM_SECOND JAVASCRIPT();MM_THIRD JAVASCRIPT();">
