    Exclamation This Script is causing an Error on IE 6/7. Help?

    When I removed this script from my site, the "Object Required" Error on Page message disappeared. IE says the error is on line 5, char 11... but that doesn't make sense to me. any pointers??

    If it helps, this code was something i found to help a CSS dropdown menu function properly.

    startList = function() {
    if (document.all&&document.getElementById) {
    navRoot = document.getElementById("ulnav");
    for (i=0; i<navRoot.childNodes.length; i++) {
    node = navRoot.childNodes[i];
    if (node.nodeName=="LI") {
    node.onmouseover=function() {
    this.className+=" over";
      node.onmouseout=function() {
      this.className=this.className.replace(" over", "");

    At a first glance:
    if (document.all&&document.getElementById)
    That will exclude all the browsers except IE. That means I doubt that code works in any browser at all, if you say IE won't run it. You don't need that condition. All the browsers on use now knows what document.getElementById means

    I'm not sure exactly why it was there in the first place... when the script is removed, the site still functions correctly in IE 6&7.

    so, thanks!
