Hierarchical Menus Ver. 3 - Addendum IV (v3.04)
two fixes for Navigator

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 problems with the Hierarchical Menus Version 3 script, when executed in Navigator 4. You must be familiar with the script to appreciate the discussion.

Welcome to the fourth maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3, hot on the heels of the previous one. Your feedback is really keeping me on my toes.(drum roll)

This release addresses two issues:

  1. The eval() problem in Navigator 4.5. Yes, it is the same one discussed in version 3.03. A more elegant fix has been proposed and since it applies to all scripts developed for NS4.5, we will adopt it as the better solution.

  2. The NS4 occasional crash-upon-mousemove-after-navigation-to-a-new-page-in-non-frameset-menus problem. This particular annoyance was inadvertantly introduced in version 3.02, and still persists.

As this is a maintenance version, no new features or performance enhancements will be introduced. These have been reserved for version 4, coming soon.

So let's first take another look at Navigator 4.5 eval() bug.
