    Netscape & IE compatibility problem

    this is the current url that i'm working on
    http://www.certifyexpress.com/micros...sentials/1.php

    pls click this url and view from netscape 4.7x and IE. u can see there are areas that are not shown.

    this is the original file.
    http://www.certifyexpress.com/miscro...ls/index.shtml

    pls compared to the .php files and you can see the difference the two sides of the bar and a gap at the bottom.

    Hi joyce,

    Considering most of the page shows up, I would look for a missing </td>, </tr>, or </table>. Netscape, Opera, etal are far less forgiving than IE when it comes to unclosed tags.

    I agree, I've seen with NN 4.78 and it took several seconds to show up the page. Double check your first HTML table code, as Vincent said, some tag must be missing.

    joyce,

    I've checked your page with NN 4.78 this time took more time to show up.
    May be your code is extremely complex for NN, how many nested tables are you using? (use three complex tables as maximum)

    Your page was very slow in NN 4.75 but it is fine in NN 6.1

    I notice that you are using frontpage to write you code. I dont use frontpage and the reason is that it puts in code that NN does not like. You suould try removing all the FP code.

    Making webpages cross browser compliant is a pain in the ***, thats why I always recomment using and editor like Homesite.

    thanks for ur suggestions. i've solve the gap problem and most of the missing area already appear. there is still one missing part, which is the title(reviewed books).

    IE works fine, but not netscape.

    watch out for overlapping tags... in a few cases you have done it and it may be what netscape is having problems with. ie : font tags below
    <font face=verdana size=2>&nbsp;&nbsp; You are not login. <b><a href="http://www.certifyexpress.com/forum/pageregister.php?action=login">Login</a></b> or <b><a href="http://www.certifyexpress.com/forum/register.php">Register</a></b>,&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>Total Registered Members : <font color=#FF3300>3982&nbsp;</b></font></font>
