Hiermenus Go Forth, XIV - DHTML Lab
Hiermenus Go Forth*, XIII:
Version 4.0.7 - The Complete Script (Full-Window)
What is it with sixes in version numbers that jinx a release? Navigator 4.6 was a step backwards, since they forgot to include LiveConnect. A few days later they were back on track with 4.61. In the same way HM Version 4.0.6, released only yesterday, inadvertently introduced a problem where no problem existed. Version 4.0.7 fixes the new problem and throws in an old problem fix at no extra charge.
Perhaps Internet Explorer is doing so well because there was never a release with a "6" in it. Hmmm, maybe the new 6.0 beta should be thoroughly tested.
As always, there is no documentation other than that already presented in previous columns.
However, all the parameters used in the script are described in detail.
Just about everything you need to know about using the script has been published in Columns 36 to 42. Additional minor information has been included in the release columns (43 to 49), usually pertaining to a adjustment introduced in the particular release.

But before you click the above link, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING POINTS:
We cannot provide additional instructions at this time. They will be forthcoming, along with detailed discussion of the code once Version 4 is rock-stable.
The menu look and behavior in the download is only one of many possible look-behavior combinations. The parameters discussed in columns 36 --> 42 achieve menu customization. Please familiarize yourself with these.
Several Version 4-related questions have been anticipated in a previous column.
Most of the Version 3-related FAQ apply to Version 4. Please check these for a possible answer to your problem.
I cannot emphasize this enough!
95% of the HM4 problem mail asks questions answered literally years ago in the FAQ. A good 30% of the mail asks FAQ #1. Another 30% asks FAQ #6. Please take the time to peruse the FAQ. You will save your own precious time.
With the volume of mail regarding HM, a reply will probably not be possible. All problems reported, however, will be considered.
Let's look at the 4.0.7 fixes.
