Hi there
The following input button works in IE
<input type="SUBMIT" VALUE="Print this Page" onclick="print()">
When viewing the page with NS it does not show up!
How can I make it for NS, IE, and other possible browsers.

The button MUST be placed in a form for it to work in NS  - <form><input type="button" VALUE="Print this Page" onclick="print()"></form>

Also notice I've changed it to type="button" since you are not submitting a form.

Initially I had the <form></form> tags. When I tested it locally the computer crashed badly... so I removed it again. On the web it seems to work fine... may be I am just inpatient when testing!!
But doesn't the "form" tag require the "ACTION" attribute.
Does NS not worry about these sort of errors.

In Netscape, the <FORM></FORM> tag is required. If not used, none of the form elements (like inputbox, button, checkbox) would be displayed.

Thanks ahosang for your speedy reply. After uploading the pages and rebooting it worked fine... never mind about the "action" tag... ;-)
