My physics teacher's website:

http://www.tvdsb.on....ucas/robertson/

doesn't work on my computer. When I go to that page, all I can see is the pic of him and the physics hourglass image. This is the same in both IE and Firefox. It says in internet options that java is enabled. Apparently it doesn't work on other people's firefox as well, but its works on everyone else's IE fine. Any suggestions?

I see all that plus the banner image at top and the three links on the left using Firefox. See the same in IE, but IE shifts the hour glass image to bottom under professor and just right of bottom link at left. FF and IE both show the web counter at bottom, too.

Ok, but does anyone have an idea as to why it isn't working?

Possibly because there is no document type for the page. Browsers are trying to parse the page the best they know how with quirks mode settings. No doc type puts IE in the Quirks Mode and thus page parsing is unreliable. Get your professor to fix the follow errors and then validate his page(s) at the w3c.org's validator:

The CSS has a lot of errors which needs to be corrected.
