    Apparently NS 4.72 is different in some substantial way from NS 4.75, or maybe NT is a good deal crankier than Win98, because the JavaScript I use to detect browser version crashes NS 4.72 on NT (at other locations) but works fine for NS 4.75 on Win98SE (at my location). All I'm picking up is the major version number: 4. Any idea why this should cause a conniption on NT?

    Hiya

    Do you have all the Windows Updates for NT as you may have for 98? If you're not sure, go here and click on Product Updates:

    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

    Also, have you tried any of the latest versions? It goes up to 6, or are you talking about Communicator, which the latest is 4.79?

    Regards

    Thanks, I figured out the needed change to JavaScript; can't remember exactly what it was, but something like a dangling else clause that NS4.75 didn't care about on Win98SE, but NS4.72 couldn't handle on NT4. Now the JavaScript picks correctly among IE5+, NS4+, and NS6+, and doesn't crash any of them.
