Hello,
I am troubleshooting a problem with Netscape 4.x. Our web designer created a rollover swap bar to replace small pictures and show larger ones with a bio. It works great in IE5.x but not at all in Netscape4.x The original rollover and behaviours were created with fireworks 3 and then imported into dreamweaver3 . We are now at the current version of dw/fw 4. How can I correct this problems?

It might be that image swap onMouseOver have been added to the image tag instead of the <a href> Tag. Perhaps(?) this happens if you've choosen to show behaviours for IE 5.

If it looks like this on your page (in the code)

<a href="somelink.htm"><img src="myImage.gif" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage... some code here" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()"></a>

Then you change the code so it will look like this:

<a href="somelink.htm" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage... some code here" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()"><img src="myImage.gif" ></a>

The onMouseOver and OnMouseOut must be inside the <a href> Tag.

Hope that will help you

Thanks all. Actually. I have to look at the code itself to see what the solution was. I contacted Macromedia. They recommended that I add a "#" to the properties Link field in the Graphics editor. This solved the problem. I am not sure why though? points for the reason.

I would assume that the reason is the same as a blank <TD>

Netscape expects to have a value in a <TD> as it expects to have a value with swapimage because swapimage is usually used for navbars.  As with a <TD> Netscape ignores the coding if it expects data and the data is not there

Word on the street was not to use the swap image restore part of the behavior at all, because of Netscape. Just swap it back on mouse out (or whatever event).

Also, "#" can shoot you to the top of the page. Javascript null (not sure of syntax off hand) doesn't do that.
