Hi,

Sorry, but your description is a bit too vague to help us help you :>) What, exactly, do you mean by "not work anymore"? What did you change? Do you have a URL or some code? That would help us out immensely. You really need to provide a bit more info.

This is what I can tell you, which would be about as basic as it can get: A common mistake is to forget quotation marks and/or semicolons at the end of each line. Go back and check to see that whatever needs to be in quotes is in quotes, and vice versa.

Also check to make sure each line end with a semicolon. Also, make sure you put the scripts correctly in your <body>.

Good luck on your project. If you need more help, though, just be sure to include more info.

Hi

no, not the "Link names" as you say, made it go away from your page. It seems, it is the way you have implemented the menu in the page

The menu is placed in a table, so please study this:
