Hi All...
           Can anyone help me on this issue. I m working on JavaScript and in case of JavaScript alert messages its title is shown as "Microsoft Internet Explorer" as I m using IE5 as my browser. I want to give my own title in the alert meassage. Is it possible?? If yes then write me how. Waiting for your reply..
