    how to prevent internet explorer security warning

    when i put rollover buttons or rolldown menubars in my pages, internet explorer says "to help protect your security, internet explorer restricted this webpage from running scripts of activex controls that could access your computer. click here for options"

    ofcourse, once you click, and allow blocked content, the sit runs smoothly, but when i look at other sites with rollovers or dropdowns, they dont give that warning. whats causing the warning, and how can i prevent it on my sites?

    That's from running js for your rollovers. It should only be a local thing and won't happen when you load the page from the server.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    I can second this. It's a security precaution to stop scripts from running locally on your machine. This will go away once you put it on a server.
    If you need a little more help, I'm available as a Website designer in San Antonio
