I cannot solve the problem with my scrolling message - works perfectly at home but no joy when uploaded to osprey. I have the following code in the <Head> section:

var msg = "Welcome to Steve's Assignment Two Web Page.........."
function showMsg()
window.status = msg
msg = msg.substring(1, msg.length) + msg.substring(0,1)
scrollmsgID = setTimeout("showMsg()",150)

and the following in the <body>

<body onLoad = "showMsg()">

Comments, particularly any that would make it work would be appreciated

I think you missed the hint in assignment2.pdf:

NB: After you uploaded your assignment you may find that your scrolling message no longer works. Your scrolling message will work on the osprey server when viewed using IE7 but you have to put its security settings to medium and not medium high. It also works in Firefox provided you go to the settings and for JavaScript advanced check the box that says allow "change status bar text"


works fine for me using IE7
