View Full Version : page comes up in Firefox, but not IE

12-01-2007, 10:40 PM
the site is www.multiplechoicebags.com/

I'm working in Dream 8 on my PC.

Converted this site from Frontpage to Dream. All works except this one page, Fleece. The fleece page can be seen in Firefox, all the links work, but is totally blanc in IE.

I dont know what <v in the code means. The code looks weird to me on that page, not that I write good code, but usually things work. :confused:

you might want to add a doc type. that is very stupid not to have one. Thats probably the problem.

Remove these bits of code:

Once again, you've come to my rescue. You're a code expert. Thanks so much.

What's with the skeleton with the gun picture? I don't remember that before. Must be new? Mad at someone? You've been terrific to me!:smile:

That's the lead character, an alien, from the video game, "Destroy All Humans!", parts 1 and 2.

My, my! How unprofessional is your reply to my post!

I did fix the doctype, but that alone didn't help. The removal of the code that Cary recommended did help. In all fairness, MAYBE it was a combination of the two. I didn't test to see.


If I knew all the answers I wouldn't write to the forum, and neither would you. With a mouth like yours it's a wonder that you could do business - I've read your other posts...

It was actually just this piece of code that was causing the problem. Everything after it was ignored.

<![if !vml]>

It was probably left over from Frontpage. I still don't know what it means. I can't find it in my HTML cheat sheets.

12-02-2007, 08:33 PM
its a conditional statement which was probably front page propriety code

12-02-2007, 11:17 PM
I didn't mean that being directed towards you. I meant that towards the program front page since it does that a lot. As for being unprofessional thats a matter of opinion as I call it like I see it. If you don't like my bluntness, OH WELL. thats life. If you don't like my other post don't read them slappy.

DON'T CALL ME STUPID AGAIN! No worries, he didn't call *you* stupid, read his post again :)
