I see you have discussed this problem a few times already, but I did not understand how to solve it from the previous postings, so I will have to post a query myself.

I have TagEditor 6.5.5.441 - (Build 441) and Office 2000, with Win XP.

When I try to preview I get the script error message for line 20 and the error is that an object is expected. Other translators are working on the same project and have not complained, so it may be my settings.
The preview used Internet Explorer, but my system uses Mozilla Firefox, could that be the problem?

On what I judge is line 20 these characters appear, are they normal or could I edit them somehow to solve the problem. It is a big project I am working on and I need to preview to be able to make sure everything looks right.




Hopefully yours
Anette

IE issue Oct 6, 2005

The problem is in Internet Explorer. You can try to disable the error messages in Tools - Internet Options - Advanced - Browsing - Display a notification about every script error (I hope the strings are correct, I use a Czech version of MSIE). You can also "Save Target as..." from TagEditor and preview the file in Firefox.

Line 20 refers to the source HTML code, not to line 20 in TagEditor.

Thank you for your reply Hynek, and for the tip about viewing in Firefox,which I had not thought about. A good workaround!
The box for displaying notifications was already disabled, and I have now set IE as the standard web browser and restarted the computer but the problem remains. I still cannot preview, as it is a large project with many small files, this would be the best option obviously. If you have any other ideas please let me know.

Thanks again

Anette

Workaround Oct 6, 2005

I don't know... There is a chance that you are translating parts of code that are not previewable at all. But if it's possible to open the cleaned file in Firefox, you could make a final check after translating and cleaning all the files. To make it easier, you could create a simple HTML page to open the source and target files in one frameset side by side. Something like this:

Left column:
link to file 1
link to file 2
link to file 3
etc.

Middle and right column:
source file and target file

The file list can be created from a simple directory listing. But it's a bit technical.
