This is partly an IE and partly an frontpage question:
On this page www.ddl.org/forening.htm the client with frontpage cant see the green buttons - Actually; she cant see any of the buttons on the whole site.
Other clients without frontpage2000 can see it !

The IE v6 is update.

What else can be wrong ?

Is she using FP to look at the site? What version? What browser? What platform?

The hover buttons are java applets -- if she has java turned off or has a very old machine that doesn't support it, she won't get anything.

It is a brand new Fujitsu-Siemens computer with windows XP, IE6 and fp2000. - And java turned on ! - The page was actually made in FP - but not on her machine.

I have frontpage 2000, ie 6.0, and I can view it.  

There are several frontpage plugins that run java unsupported by the default microsoft settings and you need sun's java plugin to run them properly.

To make sure your java is properly enabled for i.e. 6.0 goto http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/ and
download the latest version and run the installer.

Then in ie, click tools > options > advanced.  
Browsing > Enable 3rd party extensions > Click/On
Java Sun Plug-in > Click/ON
Microsoft VM > Java console enabled > Unclick/Off

Close IE and restart machine.

Please pass this information on, I answer this question about java and ie 6.0 on almost a daily basis as by default a lot of pages viewable in ie 5.5 arent viewable by default in ie 6.0 because of the enable 3rd party extensions by default is not clicked.  If you upgrade to i.e. 6.0 and your google toolbar disappear, this is the reason why...

The other problem, if you are using a webfilter (webwasher) or a firewall, make sure the settings allow java applets to run.  Norton utilities and webwasher have java disallowed by default.

eWhisper, if you would have read the full thread, you would have seen that java is enabled -- that was asked already.

While you may well be right, you don't know FOR SURE -- and you've done this on a number of questions.

I have solved the problem - The user did say no, when IE asked if it should download the java plugin, so I have downloaded it from the microsoft.com site !
