Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

the problem is the way you are referencing the div tag in your javascript

there is several ways to do it, but all only work with some browsers and not others

document.getElementById(‘hpcmenu’).style.visibility=”” works for newer versions of most browsers

document.hpcmenu.style.visibility=”” will work for ie 4x onwards

if you do a test for browser version, you should be able to select between the statements so that it will work in all browsers
