Hi Chaitra,

now this error message puzzles me a bit. IE will output this error code,
if the Javascripot function "ExtractCommNames" is not defined in the
source code of the html page. Look at the source code and see whether
the function is in the source or not. If not, then you obviously did not
put the in the header of the page you are opening.
Where to put the macro, that is something you will have to find out
yourself, as I do not know the structure of your collection.

Regards,

Axel

All I know from my experience, the metadata values in my collection, which contain Unicode characters (I think Greenstone handles them in UTF8 encoding, but I am not sure) do not cause problems. But before discussing this issue, lets go step by step. What is the behavior of the collection after you applied the above mentioned correction to the format string?
