I tried this and nothing happens. This seems to be a very common
problem for me. The code seems to want to produce a javascript
pop-up window and this doesn't work on my machine. It doesn't
work in IE 5.5 or Netscape 4.72 (and yes I have javascript enabled).

Does anyone know whether Netscape uses Microsoft's Java and/or Javascript?
(or the other way around)?

Is there a javascript test suite that anyone knows of that you can
use to test these things?

Is there any other browser available that has independent support
for javascript?
