View Full Version : Another IE/NS dilemma...
January 17th, 2001, 14:51
Okay... Here's one for anybody that may have a spare moment. I just did a major re-deign of my main site (coded a new page from the ground up), and it looks great it IE. Then the other day, I finally got around to loading it in Turdscape (which I only have installed at work) and for some reason, only the main logo header loads. But if you view the page source, you see the whole page. I've looked it over a couple of times, but can't see what in there would cause that. If someone has the time and could maybe figure it out, it would be appreciated... Otherwise I guess it will be an IE only site until this weekend, at least. :-) It's http://www.alexiacafe.com. Thanks!

It's blank in all browsers... A frameset with the source as itself...
<html><head><title>The Alexia Cafe</title><meta name="keywords" content=""><meta name="description" content=""></head>
<frameset frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="0" rows="100%,0"><frame src="/" scrolling="auto" noresize>
<meta http-equiv=refresh content="0; url=/"><a href="/">Enter The Site</a>

Well, it appears blank if you click on his link because the period is included, just remove it and it will come up...
Madrake, I guess you can have some solace that it works just fine in Turdscape 6, so hopefully if all those guys switch over, it will be fine.
Most likely you did this in dreamweaver or frontpage? These are really designed only for IE, as netscape has problems drawing the tables accurately. Netscape 6 though uses the WCW conventions and draws the tables the right way...

Try running HTML tidy on it...

line 122 column 51 - Warning: unescaped & which should be written as &
line 282 column 2 - Warning: missing </font> before <p>

You may need to move one or both of the <form> and </form>
tags. HTML elements should be properly nested and form elements
are no exception. For instance you should not place the <form>
in one table cell and the </form> in another. If the <form> is
placed before a table, the </form> cannot be placed inside the
table! Note that one form can't be nested inside another!
Dirty dirty code...

Wow! Kind of a nifty little program there... Where does it come from? Is it downloadable free, or commercial?
As for the code, I used 1st Page 2000, but I really only use it for the quick preview capabilities... I type out all the code by hand. A couple of parts were cut-n-pasted from the old page. Not sure yet if one of those may be the culprit. :(
Thanks for the help. :)

One service that will list all the "wrong" things on your site is at http://websitegarage.netscape.com/
Yes, its run by netscape now, so watch out...
Also, a lot of these suggestions are not really necessary...you could put yahoo.com through it and still get errors probably...so you and only you (or a human at least) should be the final judge...

HTML Tidy is at http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/
It's from the W3C (the people who write the official HTML specs) and it's quite useful.

Heh... Went through all that code last night... Sad thing is, almost all those errors were in code that I didn't write. Part of them were in the login box code provided by Everyone.net, and the other parts were in provided banner exchange code. I doubt those were the "not loading" issue though since I used both of those snippets of code on the old page as well.

Here is another free service similar to websitegarage :
Yeah, and it's pretty dumb that the code hitbox.com gives me for my counter has errors in it according to their "Web site Doctor" .

Well HTML is a pretty sloppy scripting language...if you want script, you'll have to switch to XML hehe...
Anyway, woudn't bother changing code that others have given you... Most times (unless your dealing with tables), browsers will give html code the benefit of the doubt... :)
