    hi

    i went to the library where they have an nt4.0 os connected via dsl to the internet.

    i bring up my page and it shows a bunch of little clear boxes (don't know what they are called but will show them here with a 'z'

    nzozezvzazlzlzezyz

    now i only saw this twice in about 20 accesses and when it did come in was when accessed from another site.
    the two times it did come up, pressing refresh cleared the problem.

    i have never seen this from win98/2.

    i think it may be something like this. the server is trying to dump to the pc before the parse is fully completed

    or

    is the nt4.0 not fully acting on the information from the server.

    it only happened on the index page. i am using php3, mysql, html, tables.

    thanks ed

    Usually those small squares are created by unprintable characters. Download your page from your site and use a text editor capable of handling UNIX files to view it. A couple that do this on the Windows Platform are Textpad and UltraEdit.

    View hidden characters and then delete all of them except for spaces (shown by a small dot) and linefeeds (shown by paragraph punctuation). Upload the file via FTP as ASCII and it should eliminate the problem.
