Hi all,

I found what was causing the problem. I'm still in the learning process
for web development, so I don't really understand why it was an issue 
to start with...

It appears the name I gave for the checkout menubar button 
<img .... name="checkout" .....> so that I could onmouseover/out 
caused the rest of the page to not work properly. I changed it to
and everything works smooth now. Here's the lines:

<a href="[area ord/checkout]"
<img alt="[L]Check Out[/L]" name="check" border="0"

Might have been conflicting with the [area ord/checkout] ??
