Hi there,

No that's the strange thing.  I have written several websites for him which
all work fine, this new website is in development and works fine on the 2
PC's here and 3 friends in the UK it's only on HIS machine that this doesn't
work.  And that's what's odd, I am using the same PHP display engine for the
new website as the other websites which work fine.

He sent me a screengrab with what happens on the menu page on the left, it
tries to open the page for about an hour, then says there is an error and it
can't be opened - but it can be here on both machines (Both my dev and my
wifes) and is fine on 3 PC's in the UK (I'm in Orlando, FL) so I can't see
it being anything wrong with the code, but then why would it not work for
him when the other sites which use the same PHP menu code do?

Oh and he's using IE 6 the same as me on Windows XP - the only difference is
I use XP Pro for dev work.

Very odd.
