    Hot spots and Open Browser Window

    para-pete
      I have created a site see www.blingbongs.com...

      At the bottom right of the screen it says "meet the Crew" which is a jpeg, with a hotspot over the top. I hae then asigned a Java action of "Open Browser Window" using the attribute "On Mouse Click", in the link box there is a #. As ar as I am aware this should work on all browsers, but it doesn't. We have two machines, both installed with exactly the same version of I.E6 yet on one of the machines it is just not working, the browser window doesn't open and in fact nothing seems to happen. It doen't seem to work on Firefox either.

      I need a reliable open browser window script that doesn't get blocked - is it the hotspot or the java that is causing this problem, or is it the combination of the two. Is there another form of open browser window that we can use, or is the day of a static html page beforea flash page out!

      Is this just another case of Microsft being buggers - please help - I don't know what to do? :(

      Thanks

          It's user error. Please show me your code, and I'll explain.

                  Right - sorry for overlooking that.

                  You have this error in your code -

                  </map>!-- Start of StatCounter Code -->

                  it should be -

                  </map><!-- Start of StatCounter Code -->

                  As it stands, the code seems to work for me in IE6. It is possible that a
                  pop-up blocker is preventing it from happening for you.

                  Firefox is not recognizing that as a link at all, although as far as I know,
                  it should. Try this markup, though -

                  <area shape="rect" coords="637,467,779,495"
                  href="javascript:MM_openBrWindow('bb_4.swf','','width=806,height=547')" />
