Hierarchical Menus Ver. 3 - Addendum VIIIa (v3.08a)
changes to the conditional loading of the external scripts

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 eighth and a half maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3.

This release addresses two issues, both connected with the in-page conditional-loading-of-external-scripts script:

  1. Compatibility with Navigator versions 4.0, 4.01 and 4.01a

  2. Compatibility with Active Server Pages

The hierMenus.js external script is not affected. Only the in-page <SCRIPT> tags are changed.

First, let's make the HM script compatible with the little-used-but-still-out-there initial releases of Navigator 4.
