I am trying to make a Floating div visible in both I.E. and Firefox. I can only get it to work in i.e. it works in I.e. when I put the code in the <HEAD> tag however not in Firefox. I can get it to work for both if I put the code outside of the HTML tags altogher however If it works in both it justifies my web page to the left in i.e. I have inserted every possible tag possible to center the page but it is still justifying the page to the left. Whats more is the code is a mixture of includes, css, and asp. The script that I am using for the "visibility" is as follows:

<script type="text/javascript">

// shows the pop up div

function showObject(e, element) {

document.getElementById(element.id).style.visibility = "visible";

document.getElementById(element.id).style.top = e.clientY;


// hides to pop up div

function hideObject(element) {

document.getElementById(element.id).style.visibility = "hidden";

Welcome aboard Taggert, without running the code, where does "clientY" come from?

Also, what does your FireFox error console have to say about it?
