I have created a page in the the  evaluation version of Dreamweaver MX. The page has a layer of text that shows two two other layers onmouserover, and hides the other two layers onmouseout. When viewed in IE 6.2, it appears to work as intended, but generates the following error message:

Line: 158
Char: 1
Error: Object Expected
Code: 0

Here is the Dreamweaver generated code assocoiated with the error message:

158 <div id="Text6" class="Main2" onMouseOver="return Text6_onMouseOver()" onMouseOut="return Text6_onMouseOut()"><font color="#444444" size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">

159    <font size="2">H</font>EALTH <font size="2">C</font>ARE <font size="2">B</font>UYER</font></div>

Since I know nothing about code, I don't see anything wrong with it. The URL for the page is:
www.stonepcworks.com/vitality1.asp

All help is appreciated. Thanks, Bill

hi westone,

I have checked the code and corresponding page. Everything else seems to be fine but the initial div tag in the beginning of the font tag is extra. If you remove it everything works fine. Instead of it being what it is that is:

157 : <div id="Layer6" style="position:absolute; width:163px; height:16px; z-index:7; left: 10px; top: 320px;" onMouseOver="MM_showHideLayers('Layer12','','show','Layer13','','show')" onMouseOut="MM_showHideLayers('Layer12','','hide','Layer13','','hide')" class="Main2">
158 : <div id="Text6" class="Main2" onMouseOver="return Text6_onMouseOver()" onMouseOut="return Text6_onMouseOut()"><font color="#444444" size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
159 : <font size="2">H</font>EALTH <font size="2">C</font>ARE <font size="2">B</font>UYER</font></div>
160 : </div>

just remove the code as I have and everything will work fine. Here is how the code looks like after removing the extra code.

157 : <div id="Layer6" style="position:absolute; width:163px; height:16px; z-index:7; left: 10px; top: 320px;" onMouseOver="MM_showHideLayers('Layer12','','show','Layer13','','show')" onMouseOut="MM_showHideLayers('Layer12','','hide','Layer13','','hide')" class="Main2">
158 : <font color="#444444" size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
159 : <font size="2">H</font>EALTH <font size="2">C</font>ARE <font size="2">B</font>UYER</font>
160 : </div>

Similarly if you would remoe the extra <DIV> tag from in front of the text or font tag the error will disappear.

Hope this solves your problem.

TAKE CARE.

Thank you very much! Dreamweaver generated all the code and I was clueless about the problem. Removing that extra stuff eliminated the error. Thanks again!

You are most welcome.

Dreamweaver many times does that. With more and more experience you will be able to decide which is necesary and which is not. Actually having knowledge of Javascript will also help you decide which code to keep and which code to do away with.

Chalo that will be all for now. TAKE CARE.
