3) Describe problem:

I have developed a site that works fine on a windows server. however when transferring to a Unix host, the javascripts do not seem to work. What am I doing wrong? Any advice will be appreciated.

Most likely (as far as javascript goes), the fact that this happens to be a Unix server has nothing to do with it. There could be something else about the server that is different that is causing this and/or there could be something else you are using besides javascript that is supported on the one server (like asp.net or FP extensions) that isn't on the other. You may also just have forgotten to copy all the required files from the 1st server to the second, or made an error in your code, or one may have crept in due to the new locations (absolute paths) that would exist on a different server. If you are referencing files on one server from another, this can (in certain circumstances) cause a browser security violation. It could be something else.

To have a chance at being more specific, we would want a link to a good page on one server and a link to the corresponding bad page on the other server.

The problem seemed to be related to the use of _ and - in the XML file names. Also it seemed to be linked to the use of titlecase naming. But the problem is solved anyway :)
