    Over the years I've seen this message occasionally on downloaded Internet pages. It appears as a little yellow Triangle in the lower right corner status bar of Internet explorer.

    Yet I've never found anything that didn't seem to work (a thumbnail, a link, etc.)

    Does the message mean anything, that something can be done about, or is it just more litter on the Info Hiway?

    It usually indicates an error with the Javascript code in the page. For the most part this is of no consequence to the user. However, if some automated form fails to work properly or certain buttons don't take you where they should have, that's the likely culprit.

    Thanks!

    I sometimes wondered if it was from the kind of site where I have ocasionally had Malicious script attacks, tho I'm not really sure what that means either, but no harm has ever been incurred. [​IMG]
