Anchors won't work in Netscape????

When accessing Anchor points on a second page, e.g.:



<A HREF="page2.html#gadzooks">Some Text here</A>



on one page and then on page2.html:



<A NAME="gadzooks"></A>



It won't work in Netscape! Takes me straight to the bottom of page2.html.



I've never seen this happen before. Works in IE, and all other pages I've created have always worked. I've gone over both pages several times and can't find the problem.



Tried remving CSS and JS info, tried everything!



It's driving me bonkers!



The page in question in at: http://dss-sites.com/superead/



Please send help!

TIA

The problem is the code:

   <A NAME="gadzooks"></A>

which is non-standard HTML,
since there is "nothing" between the <A> and </A> tags.

Instead, use:

   <A NAME="gadzooks"> The </A> quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

There are words between the tags. View the page at the URL provided.



e.g.:



A NAME="gadzooks">gadzooks</A>

One small problem:

<B><STRONG><EM> Speed reading improvement.

You should remove the <B>.

Also, remove one of the 'ALIGN=' from:

<IMG
ALIGN="center" SRC="images/logo.jpg"
ALIGN="top"
ALT="compare to Evelyn Wood speed reading course"
WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="175" HSPACE="0" VSPACE="0">

Remove the 'ALIGN=' from:

<TABLE
WIDTH="580" CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="0" BORDER="0" ALIGN="left">

since some browsers have a "quirk" which causes problems
when an "aligned" table is "taller" than the size of
the browser's window.  Besides, 'ALIGN="left"' is a "default",
so your page will look the same without it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Also, remove the 'CLASS="item"' tags from 'page2.html'.
That seemed to work for me, fetching the pages from my hard-drive.

I also removed the 'class="item"' from the hyperlink
to 'comprehension' on the first(!) page.

Thanks Otta, that worked!



I guess this means if I want to access anchors to an external page, I have to make sure to either



1) keep tables short

or

2) never try to do a center or right align



I hate Navigator!



(I hate IE sometimes too ;)

The Class tags don't seem to be the problem, but you hit it on the head with "remove the "align="left"" tags from the table.  



Thanx!



(don't spend all those points in one place.:)

Long tables without 'ALIGN="something"' are fine.
You can use:

  <CENTER><TABLE> ... lots of stuff ... </TABLE></CENTER>

and that works fine.

You can use:

  <TABLE><TR><TD>column one definition</TD>
   <TD> <TABLE> ... right-aligned stuff ... </TABLE>
   </TD></TR>
  </TABLE>

to insert a table within the 2nd column of a table.
