Hi Shawn,

You'll need to narrow this down a little.

First...I know it's probably a daft question, but are you using XForms?

And if so, which XForms processor are you using in IE6?

I'm assuming you are using a plug-in, but since you refer to 'click'
events, I'm wondering if (a) you are using a scripted library, or (b)
you're actually talking about a problem with some HTML forms.
