Thnaks very much Ian and xag for replying to my problem.

Ian, I downloaded the updates andit includes a lot or js files, one of which is the spryutils.js however I have absolutley no idea as to how to use thie beyond including the javascript code into my web page. Am I suppsed to lado all the include files in the downlaod into the corresponding folders in my dreamweaver installation? I used the dreamweaver update.mxp file but nothing seem to have changed. The other problem is that according to another forum post I read, they say we must use the spry.utils.cookie.js function but the contents of my spryutils.js has no reference to cookies whatsoever and appears to refer to some type of form.. I have included the spryutils file hereunder so you can see (sorry chaps but am a total newbie on this type of programming). I am using dreamweaver data form, buttons etc..does this make a difference when using spry or must I use the built in spry data management forms etc..
Thanks very much for your time

Ian... I have perused the links and theya re helpful but likewise the file I have does not seem to correspond with what peole are saying about the javascript file....
