I am experiencing severe errors on some of my html pages e.g. http://library.gmit.ie/screens/databasesbus.html created with dreamweaver using CSS The error is big flashing letters when you hover over the tabs and there are no behaviours in the code associated with hovering! I think it may be related to a JavaScript but I'm no Java expert so I'm hoping that someone out there has a clue as to how to rectify this. We has a full system upgrade recently and new files were added which may have affected our web pages in this way. The Errors vary between IE6, IE7 and FireFox and do not relate to all tabs or all pages Help!!

Hi MauraBear,

This is definitely a javascript and CSS issue but what exactly is causing it I cannot say.  

>> here are no behaviours in the code associated with hovering!

Look through common.js

In http://library.gmit.ie/screens/styles.css you have a piece of CSS that sets your font-size to 100em which is causing your large text problem.
div.DisplayBoxContent div a:hover {
 
	text-decoration:underline;
	font-weight:bold;
	outline:none;
	font-size: 100em;
}

Open in new window

Edit your styles.css.  

If you don't want anything to happen when you hover over just delete the part of the code.
