Mac Safari and Flash Not Ouputting Proper Url

MAC Safari does not work with the following code:

_root["menuName"+i].onRelease = function() {
                  getURL(this.recentBroadcast_txt.link+"/index.cfm?r=orlive", "_blank");
            };


When clicking on link in Safari, it gives the following results:

http://www.healthcast-live.com/medtronic/1214%09%09%09%09%09/index.cfm?r=orlive

However, every other browser works fine.  Is there a solution for this type of anomaly?

Thanks,

Terry

Just click on any of the links under recent broadcasts.

Terry,

Do you have any special character within the recentBroadcast_txt.link?

I think is that kind of problem, but... how to solve? any other experts know??

Hi Vicker,

When trying to use Safari 1.0 (v85), it causes the browser to throw an error.  However, when using the latest Safari, the link works, but it removes: /index.cfm?r=orlive

NOTE: I use the /index.cfm?r=orlive to collect referrer info because IE does not allow HTTP_REFERRER

This is only the begining of my problem with Safari...  Now external jpgs are not loading into Safari.  When thumbnails are rolled over a larger image should show up, but it does not (www.or-live.com).  When examining the activity log from Safari, it tries to load a non-existant image.  Somehow Safari is reading a different XML node: thumbnailLabel as opposed to thumbnail

I am truly baffled why this is occuring and swf works in every other MAC and pc browser except Safari.

Any ideas/ comments/ solutions are appreciated.

Terry

Another insteresting observation is when viewing swf only in Safari - everything works fine.  I would have to assume there may be an issue with the embed tag?  Anybody have an idea of the proper syntax of the embed tag of Mac Safari?

I have figured out the that Flash appends 09%09%09%09%09 after each element when creating an array.  I am not sure why this occurrs, but it does.  It appears to be a bug in Flash.  The solution is to trim the array variable, then append url variable.  Please refund points and delete question!
