A web page that has displayed properly for a very long time will no longer display at all. Using WS_FTP, I deleted and re-uploaded the HTML file. When that did not work, I rewrote the HTML (not copied/pasted) in Notepad and repeated the steps in the sentence above. In both instances, the Notepad info displayed properly when I checked it via the browser before uploading.

As soon as the page comes up, it is totally blank and states, "Done" on the "bar". In frustration, I decided to check the source (View/Source). None of what I wrote on NotePad is there. Following is what is there:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
<BODY></BODY></HTML>

Please tell me what is going on and/or give me some more troubleshooting tips.

Thank you!!!

hi marlobs,

try this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
		"http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title></title>
</head>
<BODY>
marlobs
</BODY>
</HTML>


note: the w3c validator did not like it when <title></title> was missing

you can validate your html code here:
http://validator.w3.org/

Maybe I haven't adequately explained what is happening. I am uploading a complete and lengthy HTML file that includes "TITLE", etc.. When I open the page which is giving me the problem, what is visible at "View/Source" is not what I uploaded, but, a Notepad page that shows only the following:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
<BODY></BODY></HTML>

This has recently occurred on one page of a multiple page site. I know that the HTML is correct because this same page has displayed properly for at least a year and none of the other pages on the site are affected. It is just this one page that appears to have a gremblin changing what I wrote between uploading and viewing.

so you have a site where every page is ok except for one page. correct?

is this page bad when viewed on another pc?

have you checked the html code with the html validator?
http://validator.w3.org/

is this a php file?

our goal is to isolate the problem - it could be the code, your pc, or the server

try displaying the page on your pc(double click on the filename using explore). what happens?

does the code from post #2 run on the site?
