codes that should work but don't

diegotabakman hello maybe someone can help me please! this code is supposed to reload a page when you hit a link

<A href="JavaScript:window.location.reload()">

it works fine on internet explorer but when included in a compilation it gives me an error message. also this one

<a href="javascript:history.go(-1);">

it is supposed to take you back to the previous page. once again it works fine on the browser but when run from a compilation it takes me back to the first step. what am i doing wrong? do you know any codes that would work fine instead?

i have uploaded a limited example. all files included on it can be found on a zip file at this location


the exe (compiled) file download link is


(it won't take too long for you to figure out how to handle it. the RELOAD link is the word ACTUALIZAR at the page where the image on an applet moves. also at this page you can hit PANTALLA AMPLIADA (extended screen) to see this applet double sized. the X at the top right corner is the BACK link. both work fine on msie but not when included into an ebook like mine) Thank you very much !!!!!

I'm not exactly sure why you are trying to make your code run this way, and it's problematic trying to get Activ E-Book to control the Windows DOM structure.

Activ E-Book has it's own internal navigation system that allows you to move "FORWARD" and "BACK" through your structure. It also has a "REFRESH" command to refresh the current page.
