We're using the September 2000 release.

In templates/edit.tmpl there's some JavaScript which breaks for us in IE 5 and doesn't seem to do anything in Linux NS 4. The code is:

function initForm() {
	document.main.text.focus();
}
It seems like the point is to set the focus to the <TEXTAREA> element of the form. If this is the case, then perhaps it should be this:
function initForm() {
  document.forms["main"].elements["info"].focus();
}
This works very well for us under IE 5 and Linux NS 4.

However, this (01 Dec 2000) release doesn't seem to exhibit the problem.

I checked the JavaScript documentation, document.main.text.focus(); is a valid statement. The docs say: [window.]document.formName.fieldName.method(). In TWiki, main is the name of the form, text is the name of the <TEXTAREA> element. So it looks OK to me. The version before 01 Dec 2000 had the =<FORM> element incorrectly placed between =<TABLE> and =<TR>, that might have confused IE 5.

OK, thanks Peter, I'll check it out.
