    Very weird Netscape 4.7 problem!

    Hi,

    For some reason, this page doesn't display in Netscape 4.7 (shows in every other browser, though). Maybe it's because of the code on there that it doesn't support, but you'd still think that the page would show, right? Why isn't it showing?

    Thanks...

    Weird ? Nothing weird about it - It's NS4.x so what do you expect ? ... Ahem. Sorry if this isn't helpful but really, please do not expect a lot from this browser... for your own sanity

    Well, it kills NN4.8 stone dead here (pegs the CPU at 100% for several minutes until I gave up waiting, anyhow)

    Netscape 4.x has never taken kindly to deeply-nested tables. The usual problem when a whole page disappears is mis-nested table/tr/td tags somewhere, but I don't think that's your problem here.

    It might be worth making sure all your attributes are quoted properly (e.g. change
    Code:
    <form action=http://www.cartserver.com/sc/cart.cgi method=POST>
    to
    Code:
    <form action="http://www.cartserver.com/sc/cart.cgi" method="POST">
    I'd be surprised if that were the cause, though.

    If you have forgotten to close one <table>, <tr> or <td> tag it might cause NN 4.x not to show the whole page. Especially if the error is in the beginning of the HTML. Too much tags to see the error in 5 mins, so you must go it through carefully. All other browsers don't care about this kinda errors (at least not that much) so that's the reason it's working.
