    Angry Why does IE have to be so damn popular???

    Im developing a website that provides visitors with downloadable and printable coupons and there is a problem with it in IE

    When a visitor hits a link, I have used some javascript to open the new window in a smaller one that has the coupon that they can print.

    This is the code I have used:

    Code:
    <a href="javascript:location='mens_page.html';window.open('mens_promo.html','Mens Promotional Coupon','height=190,width=520,scrollbars=no,toolbars=no,menubar=yes,location=no,resizeable=no')">
    I use FireFox and this works fine in FF, but when I went to check the look, layout and functionality of the site in IE it doesn't work as needed.

    What happens is that in IE, when the link is clicked it just brings the visitor to the top of the page that the link is located in. I have experimented with many differant alternatives and can't get it to work right in IE.

    Can someone please tell me how I have to change this so it works right in IE, too??

    And for the record - I wish IE would be deprecated ..... I hate it!!!

    Just because you make your site to W3C standards, does not mean it will still work with all browsers. It will be more compatible if it is though. Just validate your site and adjust any html needed.

    I'll have to agree with you with the FireFox issue, I like it more than IE also, even when I did use M$ XP.

    Honestly I wasn't even worrying about W3C standards.

    I just wanted to know how I get this to work in IE, I know some browsers parse the code differantly and I don't know how to re-adjust my code so It works in IE too.

    for examle: in IE you only need <img src="c:/***/***.jpg">, whereas you need <img src="file://c:/***/***.jpg"> in Firefox. Many people wouldn't know this and it is not blatantly obvious. What I don't know is how I have to change this code so it works in IE as IE is so damn popular.

    Its not even live yet ..... I have alot more work to do on it .........
