    Exclamation Opera Browser Error - Please Help

    Hello Everyone,

    I am a novice web designer and I use front page and dreamweaver to edit my websites. The link below is a page I am working on and for some reason the text towards the bottom gets cut off in Opera 9.02. I have no clue what to do after an hour of trouble shooting.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Your code is written in such a way as to make it next to impossible to help - it's all on one line!

    But it looks ok in Opera 9.02 to me... maybe it's a cache issue?

    Interesting

    Anyone else just in case, because when I load it initially in opera 9.02 the bottom text is colliding with the bottom table, but when I refresh the bottom text just dissappears.

    Ok - the footer does seem to move around a bit on refresh or if the resolution is reduced - but it's hard to offer any advice with the markup the way it is... sorry mbay.

    Exclamation

    That is exactly what I am talking about, the footer, towards the bottom. What can I do to fix that error?

    As for the markup, what can I do to provide more information?

    I used is frontpage, but I am currently redoing the exact same thing in dreamweaver, hopefully that will fix it.

    Any other suggestions?

    Validate it. I bet when the site validates that it will work just fine in Opera.

    Getting a doctype on your page will help as well.

    I will try validation and doc type again.

    Do any of you can recommend a similiar editor like frontpage that will not run into this trouble?

    Do you intend to manage your legacy code or write modern, table-less code with the editor?

    I would reccommend N|vu, but only if you have sparkly code - it will choke when trying to open old FrontPage code.

    Thumbs up Resolved!

    I actually would like to learn CSS John and I am gradually practicing with it.

    As for frontpage, I resolved the error with Opera 9.02.

    The problem was that the footer would fail to display correctly even after refresh.

    I restored the optimize html functions to default and removed all optimize html functions in the remote web properties. It seems to work on refresh.

    Thank you everyone for helping.

    Take care.

    I know you do...I was suggesting using N|vu over FrontPage and explaining that as good an app as N|vu is, it will choke when trying to open pages that aren't coded in a very modern way (i.e. pages originally created in FrontPage).

    As far as really great book/tutorial that covers CSS, HTML, layout, typography, multimedia etc., all using best practices, is the HTML, XHTML, and CSS, Sixth Edition: Visual QuickStart Guide. It is one of the most invaluable resources you can have on hand for just about anything "frontend" that comes up.
