Selection of this option shows a small percentage of the actual tree, then sends the browser into a very tight cpu loop. i have to cancel it using task manager. this happens both at my local machine and at the server.

Comment Can't seem to reproduce, even with a July copy of your templates-- can you please email a zip of your latest .stml files to surfer@ieinc.com?

No need for the database, we already have that.

If we can't reproduce with current build, will advise you of which file to download.

Comment templates sent via "reply", so they went to surfer@screensurfer.com - if that's not good, let me know and i'll re-send. database was included, as changes have been made since last time.

Comment This was being caused by the sending of a table that was 24 tables deep (the unformatted screen recognition section with 23 AND's).

Netscape 4 broke (IE4 survived).

You should get the source code for Netscape and fix it.

Just kidding...to avoid this from happening, we've added some kinky logic that combines more than 4 AND's into a single cell-- the vertical "FALSE" line on the left gets much longer than it needs to, but you no longer have severely nested tables, and it no longer breaks NS4.

Fixed in ftp://ftp.ieinc2.com/pub/surfer/t1_3_23c.zip
