Subject: onmouseover routines

I've noticed that if I write a simple "mouseover" routine like this :

<a href="threetop.htm"onmouseover="window.status='Click here to learn more
about the Threetops course';return true">

...  it doesn't always take effect on the first load. For example, if I load
the document directly into Netscape 2.0 (from my hard disk), then the
"onmouseover" links do not work. If, however, I simply hit the "back" button
and then go "forward" again, I get the desired effect.
This happens not only with the "onmouseover" event handler, but with others
as well.

I realize I'm probably missing something obvious.... could someone please
clue me in? Thanks.
