Yeah, I read few posts about the issue from this forum, but didn't quite figure out how to fix this annoyance.

I'm building a e-commerce site with shopping carts etc and if user wants to have some additional info about some product he/she can open a popup which contains pictures etc and "add to shopping cart"-button.

UserID is kept in a session but the problem is that when using the application with IE6, the UserID-session does not get transmitted to the popup (just gives NULL when trying to retrieve it) ..

Am I supposed to be using encodeURL()-method and if yes, why doesn't this work ?



Thanks.

Oh, thank you very much for your most helpful reply !

I've been always using alternative browsers but the sad thing is that 95% (?) of the target users of my application are not.

Adeel, while I will agree that it is galling to have to deal with IE's foibles, the fact is that it is still the majority browser out there and those of us writing web apps for other than our own use must make our apps work in that environment. I'd please ask you to refrain from making comments that are not helpful to that end.

Your reply would have been appropriate for a question such as "which browser should I use?", but was not helpful for a "how do I get such and such to work?" question.

thanks,

Sorry mates I have deleted my post.
I didn't think that it would become so serious.

Bear,
Thanks for your helpful suggestion. I'll do care in future.

thanks.
