Topic: Clock Widget Fails to Open With Internet Explorer 6, but FireFox2 OK

I uploaded your widget to a site and it opens fine using FireFox 2, however it fails to open when viewing the site with Internet Explorer 6.  I've temporarily removed the link back to this site until I get the issue resolved.

Any ideas guys???

Edit:  Forgot to mention it works fine in both browsers locally (off line), but when I download it to the site it fails to display when using IE only.

Hello,

Please give us the link to that clock which doesnt work on IE6 so we can find the solution to your problem.

Hi Admin.

This problem wasn't associated with your clock, rather all the conditions required to make it functional in a forum not wanting to cooperate, along with different browsers interpretation of the script.  But, in the end I was able to embed it to a forum that wasn't fully compliant.

Here is the skinny.  The forum did not allow uploaded files.  Furthermore, when posting, the forum 'munged' the code, i.e. html references were automatically changed to a href="html........., resulting in invalid url references.

Workarounds were necessary:

1) Uploaded all files to my site
2) Use an HTML iframe on the forum site to reference remote clock files
3) Since iframes included a url, I had to encode the HTML iframe along with parameters, as Javascript Encoded HTML (the forum doesn't modify this format, leaving inks intact).
4) AVG was the only virus scanner that raised an alert (as it turned out, a False Positive).  On further testing, I found it necessary to encode all except the </iframe> closing tag which had to remain as HTML.  AVG was happy with this.

Note:   AVG interpreted the iframe as a Virus when full iframe script including opening and closing tags were encoded.

Maybe you have other suggestions to simplify the process.......
