    error from a script, yet, i don't see any error in the script

    alright, here's my problem
    i created a script, but when ever i put this script in, i gett eh error icon in the bottom left hand corner of my browser (IE) yet i can't seem to find the error in my script, nor can any or my other friends
    this script was made to replace the main top tables of a Proboards remotely hosted forum
    this is the URL to my forums, where the script is curently being used
    http://hokuro.proboards19.com/index.cgi
    now, what i'm guessing could be the problem aera is the rollover image mapping, yet i don't see any mistake >_<!!
    if i could recieve some assitance with what my problem could be, i'd much appreciate it!
    thanks you
    here is the script (i bold'ed is the rollover mapping)
    <Script Language="JavaScript">

    Double click on the error icon and will give you the details of the error.

    The errors I'm getting are:
    Code:
    Error: A[a].href has no properties
    Source File: http://hokuro.proboards19.com/index.cgi
    Line: 775
    And also...
    Code:
    Error: document.body.createTextRange is not a function
    Source File: http://hokuro.proboards19.com/index.cgi
    Line: 1292
    The first may be something to look into. Although JavaScript is case-sensitive, using A and a as variables might not be the best idea.

    For the second, I'm not too sure about createTextRange(). Is that proprietary-IE or is it part of the real W3C specification? Assuming it's a valid W3C function, you might try using document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].createTextRange();

    Hope this helps!

    TextRange is IE-proprietary, and created by elementObj.createTextRange(). Range is W3C, and created by document.createRange().

    Hope that helps!

    Happy coding!

    well thing is, i took out all IE only properties, so i could be viewed on mozzila and such, so i have no clue where that document.body.createTextRange came from in that error...

    but when i get my error message, it says the cuase is a "unterminated string constant"
    yet i have no clue what they mean by that, and where it is in the coding...

    thanks for the help ^_^

    Unterminated string constant I believe is the same thing as unterminated string literal. An example would be something like this:

    Code:
    var s = "My name is Larry; //this will produce an error, because the string literal is unterminated;
    Most likely, somewhere in that very large string of yours you made a mistake with your quotation marks, both single and double. Consider separating the whole string into many additions, using the add-by-value (+=) operator. It would be easy, I imagine, to get lost in such a big, endless string.

    You might even want to consider an alternative way of doing this, as appending a giant string of HTML with JavaScript isn't very practical.

    Hope that helps!

    Happy coding!

    but, all my strings are terminated, everything has been ended perfectly, or else the coding wouldn't work rather than just a error message, and i checked it over too


    this is so weird....
