    Default I owe NOF an apology

    I have been noticing two strings of JS code in my published pages. I just
    assumed NOF was generating this mystery code on publish. The annoying
    thing is that this mystery code lacks a "type attribute" and it appears
    after the </html> tag so it's not valid markup. And when I run my pages
    through Tidy, they throw warnings about this.

    Here's what it looks like:

    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--

    function SymError()
    {
    return true;
    }

    window.onerror = SymError;

    var SymRealWinOpen = window.open;

    function SymWinOpen(url, name, attributes)
    {
    return (new Object());
    }

    window.open = SymWinOpen;

    //-->
    </script>
    -------------------
    <body> page content here </body>
    </html>
    -----------------
    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    var SymRealOnLoad;
    var SymRealOnUnload;

    function SymOnUnload()
    {
    window.open = SymWinOpen;
    if(SymRealOnUnload != null)
    SymRealOnUnload();
    }

    function SymOnLoad()
    {
    if(SymRealOnLoad != null)
    SymRealOnLoad();
    window.open = SymRealWinOpen;
    SymRealOnUnload = window.onunload;
    window.onunload = SymOnUnload;
    }

    SymRealOnLoad = window.onload;
    window.onload = SymOnLoad;

    //-->
    </script>


    For other users who might be interested, I just learned this code isn't
    being generated by NOF. It isn't coming from my servers either. It's
    called SymRealWinOpen and it's generated by my system's Norton Pop-up
    blocker. So I owe NOF an apology. Sorry.

    I have had more problems from antivirus programs than any virus, Norton
    being the biggest offender.

    If you use Windows platform IMHO IE7 has its own popup blocker which works
    petty good and does no harm...

    I use Mcafee Virusscan and this only. All other stuff from their package I
    disabled because it only caused nuissance.

    I'm a big fan of AVG. Works well, and is free!
