I had done a feedback page in ASP. The tabs are working fine in IE but not so in Google Chrome or Mozilla. What should be done to make those work also?

Are you talking about the browser tabs themselves? If so, I'm lost.

Or are you talking about some sort of scripted (usually javascript) navigation type of tabs that appear on the page?

If it's the latter it's probably a coding thing. IE is a lot more forgiving of coding errors than are Mozilla/Firefox or Safari/Chrome.

Sorry I did not mention correctly. I was talking about the Tab Key in the keyword which are used for navigation to next field in a feedback form. Is it to do with code or manually altering certain properties in other browsers?

ohhhh! Boy my guess was way out in left field, hunh? giggle.gif

What are you using exactly? I use the good old tabindex=1, tabindex=2, etc on a most of my contact forms and it seems to work in all the browsers.

Just to add on this, the tabs working now with the code given. There is a similar issue with regard to ALT tags. I had created ALT tags for an image in html page. The pop ups work in IE but I am not getting it in Firefox. Is there a separate Tag for including it.

I'm confused again.

The ALT attribute has nothing to do with opening a popup window or using the old (and depreciated though I still have it in code on some of my sites) target="_blank" attribute that would attempt to open a full sized browser window. Both of those calls would normally come as part of your <a href tag, not an <img alt=.

The popup would require a javascript function that then got referenced in an onclick event of the <a href tag. The target="_blank" attribute would simply be added to the <a href tag.

I'm guessing popup equals tool tip, Randy?

Internet Explorer, as far as I know, is the only browser that uses the ALT attribute to create tool tips. All other browsers use the TITLE attribute of a tag (not to be confused with the TITLE tag).
