Try clicking on the 'location:   ' field at the top of the navigator and
hitting [ENTER].  This should force the new code to be excecuted.

If you're careful and keep on top of the bugs, there's no reason you can't
implement JS in commercial sites.  Right now, I have the luxury of
developing an INTRAnet for a company that has a site liscence for Netscape
2.0.  I get to do my coding with the knowledge that everybody has the same
platform and browser. <g> Without doing server side browser detects (for AOL
and such), it might be a gamble to use too much JS for a while.
