Default Why won't Mac's play ball

We built this calendar application that displays a calendar; well, I say we built it, we 'borrowed the code'. However, we discovered that it didn't work in Mozilla browsers, only IE so that taught us a lesson not to 'borrow code'.

So we re-built it ourselves and now it works fine in IE and Mozilla. The only thing is, it doesn't work on a Mac!!! I know Mac's have their purpose and they are useful machines, but why won't they display certain kinds of scripting (javascript in this instance). Is there a way round this inherent problem?

thanks

Adam

Well which browser, IE on Mac or something else?
What error do you get or is it a display problem?

Richard, you mean you can't diagnose the problem? Shame on you! I propose immediate expulsion from the Mind Readers and Psychics Guild.

It seems the spiritual realm doesn't care for the problems with Macs and JavaScript errors.

This one I'm typing on now, I get nothing unless it's got the magic crystal inserted. See there, is your magic crystal properly mounted?

Geesh, these n00bs!

Rich
