Default Can Macintosh load <div>?

The following HTML/javascript document illustrates a question I have with client-side Macintosh users. The <div ID="NavBarDiv"> does not load using any of my IE or NN-compatible commands.

Does Macintosh support an equivalent command?
How do I detect Macintosh users?

On a Macintosh computer, notice that the website www.finehomemadesoap.com does not have a navigation bar, because I generate HTML for the navigation bar, and then load it into the <div> block using the script shown below.

Thanks, Daniel

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

    <div ID="NavBarDiv" style="position: relative; left: 10px; top: 0 px;">
    Loading...<br><br>Appologies Macintosh users.<br>If wait is longer than 1 second, loading is unsuccessful.

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
        //document.getElementById('NavBarDiv').innerHTML = "Hello hello hello.";
        var navBarHTML = 'Hello.<br>You have successfully written HTML.' ;
        var documentContainingTag = window.document;
        //writeInnerHTML(documentContainingTag,'NavBarDiv',n avBarHTML)
        function writeInnerHTML(documentContainingTag, tagID, HTML) {
            var htmlElement;
            if (document.layers) { // NN4. Layers are supported.
                htmlElement = documentContainingTag.layers[tagID].document;
            } else if (document.all) { // IE4+.
                htmlElement = documentContainingTag.all[tagID];
                htmlElement.innerHTML = HTML;
            } else if (document.documentElement) { // NN6.
                htmlElement = documentContainingTag.getElementById(tagID);
                htmlElement.innerHTML = HTML;
