Hierarchical Menus Ver. 3 - Addendum VII (v3.07)
two minor fixes for both browsers

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

Welcome to the seventh, and hopefully the last, maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3.
(I seem to recall saying the exact same thing with the previous maintenance release)

This release addresses two issues:

  1. The inability of the script to differentiate between the word "javascript" as an indicator of a JavaScript URL or as part of an http: URL path.

    Thanks to a reader whose name I have lost (send it in again), for submitting this problem.

  2. The occasional error generated when a user gets ridiculously click-happy in a frameset menu environment.

    Thanks to Jason Wong for first submitting this problem and helping with the testing.

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. (really!)

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 javascript problem.
