Guys my wife keeps getting a runtime error on her PC whenever she opens IE - home page is Orange [ thats the BB provider ]

She gets about 10-12 messages boxes which quote line numbers and "syntax" error or "expected ';'"

Any ideas how to solve ?

The Orange web portal home page is broken - everybody gets these errors.

She can't get rid of the errors, but she can stop them from popping up alert boxes by unticking the "Display a notification about every script error" box in Internet Options/Advanced within Internet Explorer.

Alternatively she could change her home page to something that isn't broken.

Obligatory: Install Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/) :banana:

(Ignoring the fact that the site will probably break even more, if they can't be bothered to get the home page JavaScript working correctly in IE... :eyes )

too much purple or brown - don't you do one in a nice relaxing green or blue ?

Green is quite sickly though....

The next one that is likely to go up will likely be blacks and browns, suppose i could request green in there as well....

I know it needs updating, just not got round to it yet.

It's w3C compliant though so who cares :)

There is an xhtml one that is half done waiting to go live, just need time to finish it all off.

Semantic HTML my friend!

But all your HTML is written by those "highly standards-compliant" .NET web controls, with the help of the semantic Viewstate. :D

You can make .Net applications fully standards compliant.

And even the build in controls are pretty standards complaint, when theres an issue you can create a control adapter to render correct markup.

Lots of time, effort and fuss when a copy of notepad will usually suffice :)

But it doesn't have a spell checker :spel

On a serious note I looked at your site and there are a number of spelling mistakes; this does not portray a very professional image. Look at the "Dedicated Server" information as a starting point.

I shall slap the person responsible straight away and get it updated later on today.

Spell check in the new backend should fix that in the future.

BTW you are the only person in 4 years to notice that and tell me :eek: I guess not many people read it :frown
