Hierarchical Menus Ver. 3 - Addendum III (v3.03)
menus for Communicator/Navigator 4.5

This column introduces a new version of the hierarchical menu script. All information is valid at the time of writing. New browser versions released after publication may not behave as outlined. The script is constantly under revision, with new features added, problems fixed and new browser versions addressed.
Read this column, and future columns, to learn how we built the menu script.
Use the most recent version of the script, always available in HierMenus Central.

This addendum addresses and fixes a problem with the Hierarchical Menus Version 3 script, when executed in Navigator 4.5. You must be familiar with the script to appreciate the discussion.

Welcome to the third maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3. Admittedly, it has been late in arriving, due mostly to personal time constraints. Our apologies.

Thanks to all who sent mail to inform, assist, or badger me regarding the failure of the menu script in Navigator 4.5.

Special thanks to those who sent "fixes." All fix variations work, oddly enough, but we'll incorporate and discuss the simplest, the one that requires the least modification to the code. Which means that very special thanks go to Jeff Sheffield, a webmaster at Tivoli Systems Intranet, who was first on the block with this particular fix.

Therefore version 3.03 involves only the fix for Navigator 4.5. New features and performance improvement have been reserved for version 4, coming soon.

So let's look at why Navigator 4.5 did not like the menu script.
