Ok here is a error that comes up in JavaScript

if you had "and" in  a "if" statement like  example

if (navigator.family == "ie4" *&* navigator.version < 4.1)

like the line above  picks up 2 errors, it wants

if (navigator.family == "ie4" *&amp* navigator.version &lt; 4.1)

By the way maybe I do not need that JavaScript anymore?

all the same I get cheesed off when I can not use my cell phone on a New
Zealand website trademe because it will on display in the lastest mini
Opera version I thought that was the reason for having web sites so ALL web
browsers worked without error.
