Hierarchical Menus Ver. 3 - Addendum VI (v3.06)
fixes and improvements 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 sixth, and hopefully the last, maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3.

This release addresses these Navigator-related issues:

  1. The inability of the script to substitute the second specified menu item font, from a font list, if the first font is not available to the user.

  2. The error generated when the status bar attempts to display the linked-to URL of a menu item, if the URL is a JavaScript URL.

  3. The occasional underlining of menu item text.

This is a maintenance version, so no major features or performance enhancements will be introduced. These have been reserved for version 4, a.k.a the Speed Demon, coming soon.

For the impatient, a beta release of version 4, without the speed enhancements, but with new features, has been posted on HierMenus Central, our mini-site devoted exclusively to the menu script.

Let's start with the font problem.
