Javascript DHTML Menu with Error: Object Expected??

Hi
Here is the link to the page login is Admin Admin (temporarily) http://www.lgpartnersinc.com/Services.asp



When you hover over my menu you get an error on the page Code: 0 Error: Object Expected.
It may seem like a lame question to most here but what is the object thats expected. I have looked at my code to no success.

Here is the code where the error is
      <tr>
        <td width="10" height="19" align="left" bgcolor="#990000">&nbsp;</td>
        <td width="63" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Services.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.Aboutus,0)" onmouseover="showLayer('Aboutus'), hilite(document.AboutUs,1)">About Us</a></td>
        <td width="43" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" width="12" height="12" border="0"><a class="menu" href="IPO-Market-Report.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.products,1)" onmouseover="showLayer('Products'), hilite(document.products,1)">News</a></td>
        <td width="125" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Previous-Reccommendations.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.Recommends,2)" onmouseover="showLayer('Recommends'), hilite(document.Recommends,2)">Research & Strategy</a></td>
        <td width="112" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Becoming-a-Client.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.support,3)" onmouseover="showLayer('Support'), hilite(document.support,3)">Becoming a Client</a></td>
        <td width="119" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Markets-Research.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.Client,4)" onmouseover="showLayer('Client'), hilite(document.Client,4)">Market & Research</a></td>
        <td width="122" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Disclaimer.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.Disclaim,5)" onmouseover="showLayer('Disclaim'), hilite(document.Disclaim,5)">Disclaimer </a></td>
      </tr>


 Though is does not appear detrimental to my pages I don't think an error on the page looks very professional.


Hope someone can help.

To make things easier maybe here is  one line of the code for one of the dropdown menu items

  <td width="63" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Services.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(document.Aboutus,0)" onmouseover="showLayer('Aboutus'), hilite(document.AboutUs,1)">About Us</a></td>

hi mknight9,

so, i don't see your page, but here an example:

<script>
var ll;
function btnTimer()
{
      ll.style.display="none"
}

function hilite(obj,st)
{
      if(st==1)
      {
            obj.style.backgroundColor="red"
      }
      else
      {
            obj.style.backgroundColor="ffffff"
      }
}

function showLayer(divID)
{
      ll=document.getElementById(divID);
      ll.style.display=""
}


</script>
<td width="63" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="../Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12">
<a class="menu" href="Services.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer(), hilite(this,0)"
onmouseover="showLayer('Aboutus'), hilite(this,1)">About Us</a></td>

<div id=Aboutus style=display:none>

</div>

Hi,

="btnTimer(), hilite(document.Aboutus,0)"

for starters: that comma -- btnTimer(), -- should be a semi-colon

'object expected' errors usually imply that a function is trying to access an object that hasn't been created -- eg if your menu is trying to set a div with content before the browser has had time to read the line that contains the div.

Also, you don't have a function called hilite() on the page.

It works if you change the block of code to this:

        <td width="63" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Services.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer();" onmouseover="showLayer('Aboutus');">About Us</a></td>
        <td width="43" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="Images/line-space.gif" width="12" height="12" border="0"><a class="menu" href="IPO-Market-Report.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer()" onmouseover="showLayer('Products');">News</a></td>
        <td width="125" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Previous-Reccommendations.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer()" onmouseover="showLayer('Recommends')">Research & Strategy</a></td>
        <td width="112" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Becoming-Client.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer()" onmouseover="showLayer('Support')">Becoming a Client</a></td>
        <td width="119" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Markets-Research.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer()" onmouseover="showLayer('Client')">Market & Research</a></td>
        <td width="77" valign="bottom" bgcolor="#990000"> <img src="Images/line-space.gif" border="0" width="12" height="12"><a class="menu" href="Disclaimer.asp" onmouseout="btnTimer()" onmouseover="showLayer('Disclaim')">Disclaimer </a></td>
