Hi,

A friend of mine is running Win XP and IE6.

I have designed a web site for him which I have emailed to him for proof readings.

Javascript has been used to disguise email addresses and an excel spread sheet is included as a download from a link.

When trying to run the draft website from his machine in IE6 the script doesn't run but there is no security bar at the top of the browser window where you would normally expect to "click" to be able to select the option to allow it to. In his "Internet" and "Intranet" security settings "Active Scripting" is enabled.

When he clicks on the link to download the excel file he gets a message which says something to the effect that "Security Settings will not allow download of this file".

However, for a similar web site which I have designed and is published, which uses javascript for the menus, the menus appear as intended so clearly the script is executing. Further, on this site a word doc downloads with no problem.

I have to confess I am stumped. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks
Derek
