Default Ch. 18-4 IE7 solution??

Hi--
I've installed apache on my XP machine and it's serving up the Ex. 18-4 dinner menu page, but not applying the IE7 Javascript fixes for me. Ugh. Looks great in Firefox, but I need to make happen in IE6. What am I doing wrong? I hid the print and handheld stylesheets in their own directory.

Really like the book--I think it's the definitive text for the beginner.
thanks,

--CR

Hi,

Sorry for the belated response! It'd help me to troubleshoot better if I had a URL. If you've installed this on your home PC I might be able to look at it via your IP address.

Otherwise, which version of IE7 did you use? Are you able to pull up the IE7 test page? That's the test.html file in the IE7 install directory.

When you pull up the dinner menu, what is the URL that you use? For example, it'll look something like: http://localhost/dinner_menu.html

What is the IE7 install directory?
For example, http://localhost/ie7/test.html

And what does the source code pointing to IE7 look like?
For example:
Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 7]>
        <script src="/ie7/ie7-standard-p.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <![endif]-->

Regards,
Rich

Thanks for your response--I just got back in town myself. The fix is using the right directory name--Duh! I'm using the IE7.0.9 release, so the source should read:

 <script src="/ie7_0_9/ie7-standard-p.js" type="text/javascript">

 Nice to know you are keeping up with it.
