1) Script Title:
Chrome CSS Drop Down Menu (v2.01)

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/chrome/index.htm

3) Describe problem:
I was wondering if someone can help with this error message from blogger.com:
[WXP2, FF2, Blogger.com (layouts) > My Blog=http://funtools.blogspot.com/]
I received the error message immediately after trying to save the template changes to include the 'Chrome CSS Drop Down Menu v2.01' script.

Hmmm I don't use Blogger, but in general, it shouldn't matter. Make sure you're not pasting the entire source code of the script (like above) into your template, just the references to them in the HEAD section of demo.htm (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/chrome/demo.htm), so:


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="chrometheme/chromestyle.css" />

<script type="text/javascript" src="chromejs/chrome.js">

/***********************************************
* Chrome CSS Drop Down Menu- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code
***********************************************/

</script>

Obviously you also need to upload the .js and .css files to chromejs/ as referenced above.
