MSIE 4 on the mac (and just version 4, version 3 works fine) does not
support VBScript. And not only do it not support VBScript, but it runs the
irritating alert that you mention when ever a page containing VBScript is
This is mentioned in the Aftershock readme as a known issue, and it
contains a workaround, which is the following - on the Scripting tab, check
the box that allows installation of the ActiveX Control on Internet
Explorer. Then there will be no VBScript, and no alert.
The next version of Aftershock (coming soon) will be able to avoid this
problem by testing for IE4 on the Mac & not writing the VBScript.
