    Hi
    For some reason this page won't work on Vista/XP ONLY ON WINDOWS 7 & MAC Its the intro page so to speak of a website and I can't link the rest of the site to it until I can get it working cross browser. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Many Thanks in anticipation. This is the url http://www.cliftonkarate.co.uk/NewSite/index.html

    It works fine for me on XP with Firefox 18 and Safari. IE7 throws an error so it is a browser rather than an OS issue. You need to check your code is compatible with early versions of IE or advise your visitors to use alternative browsers.

    On my XP the page loads and the doors open and close and I can click on the adults and juniors and get the js popup in both Firefox and Safari but in IE the browser throws an error. There fore it is code incompatibility which is well known for IE the least standards compliant browser of all.

    Love your graphic effects and Colin is right about MSIE non conforming, particularly the early versions, but also look at how MSIE is handling your javascript.
    Just a hint, but you may want to centre your page - it shows aligned left by default. Here's a nice snippet about how to centre your page:)

    Here's a good start (blew up in IE 7 and 8, worked fine in IE 9 and chrome.

    Code:
    SCRIPT438: Object doesn't support property or method 'play' 
    index.html, line 87 character 13
    SCRIPT438: Object doesn't support property or method 'play' 
    index.html, line 92 character 13
    I would start by commenting those functions and debug from there. By the way, I like the effects also.
