Hello,

I could really use some direction please. I'd been trying to solve the problem I introduced in an earlier post. I just discovered conditional comments and had great hope that it would help with my iframe problem by allowing me to use the iframe Table of Contents for non-IE browsers, but just provide a link to the TOC in IE and browsers that can't handle iframes.

Problem now: Firefox won't show the iframe and validate, and it also shows what is within the IE conditional statement in a sliding box behind the iframe. (And I'd still prefer to have the table of contents external file show up in the menu in IE, if at all possible.)

Validates, but iframe doesn't show up in firefox:
