Front Page Hover Buttons and Windows XP

When we add a hover button from Front Page none of our XP machines can view them, however our Win98 machines can.  Any ideas?

This could be caused by one of the updated IE 6 security features related to Windows XP SP2.  Is it possible to post a link to your website or at least the section of html code that specifies the hover button?

It may also be a matter of making sure Java is enabled in IE on your XP browsers (if the FP feature uses Java, which I suspect it does - not certain though, as I don't use FP myself).

Or more accurately:
"Hover buttons require Java Virtual Machine which can be downloaded from http://java.sun.com.  However, most people have quit using Hover Buttons because windows XP / IE6 no longer come with JVM installed."

You can also get JVM at www.virtualmachine.tk, but remember that if this is a public website, your XP/IE6 users won't necessarily know this, so you may want to consider using something other than hover buttons.
