Run the javascript through JSLint.

This is an amazing tool which will analyse your JavaScript and tell you how to clean up the code. Using this tool ends up generating code that is compatible across browsers.

As for doctype errors, there's a chance that your errors are coming from how you are linking in the JavaScript into your page not being compatible with the doctype used. I suggest looking at W3Schools DOCTYPE for more information.

this is needed for the scrip to work and i think its the reason its messing up with the doctype

<body onLoad="javascript:attach_file( 'mysql_insert.php' ) ; show_status('Ready...'); "> <!--atach my php file so its ready for later -->

what i had to do is just edit the doctype like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC >

IE needed a doctype to center the website
but firefox was not likeing the full doctype so the edited one works with both browsers and also now my java script is working :)
