Hi,

My site is written in normail HTML, and for some reason, the <font> tag, along with other items on my site are not working correctly in Internet Explorer. It works fine in Firefox however. my website is http://www.mountainjewelsranch.com, and the iframe inside of the main page is located here: http://www.mountainj...frame/home.html

I would appreciate any insight you may have.

Thanks

I'd be willing to bet it's with the comic sans ms font line... have you tried changing it to this:

<FONT FACE="Comic Sans MS,Courier New">

And then maybe instead of shortcuting the <font> tag, try adjusting it individually?

just tried that, and nothing changed. Also, my banners don't show up on the top of the page either. I assume they are related issues. Any other ideas?

Thanks!

I looked closer.. you have a malformed tag that isn't closed:

<html>
 <body bgcolor="000000">
  <center>
   <table width="100%" height="100%" >
	<tr>
	 <td>
	  <img src="images/Image-01.jpg" width="332">
	 </td>
	 <td

That last <td> just before the <font> isn't closed according to your source...

Plus, most of your color values have invalid values on frame page.

Example:

<body bgcolor="#000000"><body vlink="ffffff" alink="ffffff" link="ffffff">

Just forgot the " # ". Might go through the main page too. Also would provide full paths for all images/links.

Hi,

Thank you both for your imput. thenotch nailed it. It was the malformed tag. I don't beleive I didn't see that. O well.

And as for the "#" before the colors, I've taken a couple diffent html classes, and the instructors said that it didn't matter, and it all works now, so I guess it doesn't. Anyway...

Thanks again!

To add to what Major Payne stated, you need to clean up the html... it's pretty messy and would never pass validation.

You are missing DOCTYPE, character encoding and ALT tags as well... important stuff...

Your instructors are giving you bad information and teaching you "lazy" design... MP is right, you need to add the # before the colors. You also need to make sure that items are enclosed with ".

Do it right from the start, learn solid coding skills...

Good luck!
