    This link does not work!

    When viewing this page on IE5/Win2000, the main image - which serves as a link back to the home page, does not work:

    http://www.accessify.com/default.asp

    Strangely, though, the URL does appear in the status bar, although clicking on the image does not work, and nor does the cursor change to a hand.

    I believe it's a CSS bug as I've seen this before some time ago.

    Any ideas welcomed.

    PS - the site is still under construction - not a completed piece.

    Works for me too in XP Pro IE6 ... but not IE5 Win2000.

    It's a very strange bug. Dunno what cause of it is

    It could be either IE 5.0 on 2000 since IE 6.0 on 2000 has no problems. Maybe there's some slightly inaccurate syntax I looked at the CSS and there were a few little errors for example nested comments /* /* which could halt a CSS parser.

    Apart from the old CSS glitch nothing really stood out to me saying the code would prevent the page from displaying, I remember something about IE and the mere ordering of CSS media type rel links, i.e. "media screen, media print", via the XHTML can affect layout in Micro$oft IE. Good luck, all I can suggest at the momment is double check the syntax.

    It might have something to do with the CSS syntax. The nested comments thing is a deliberate ploy to hide styles from Netscape 4 - info about that here: http://www.v2studio.com/k/css/n4hide/
