I'm linking to a css file. In ie the font face shows up correctly but in Netscape the font face is not being picked up.  Does anybody know why this may be happening?

It depends on the tag you're using... some things work in IE that don't work in NS, and vice versa. For a complete list, go to http://webreview.com/wr/pub/guides/style/mastergrid.html

The version of Netscape is 4.7

The url is:  http://test.garycox.cx/SiteSrvr/26p490/rsrc/WPgs/home/home.htm

It links to the css file:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://test.garycox.cx/SiteSrvr/stylesheets/ibooks.css">

So are you saying instead of this:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://test.garycox.cx/SiteSrvr/stylesheets/ibooks.css">


Say this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="text/css">?

Do nothing else?

If that's the total of what I do it didn't seem to make any difference.  What do you think?

AGB -- It's common practice here (see the link below) to put your "answer" in as a comment, so as to allow the questioner to evaluate all the answers... By "answering" as opposed to "commenting", you lock out anyone who might have a better or more complete answer... *smile*...

The only things that are obvious are as follows:

1. With regard to the left navbar and the wish list on the right: In your top navbar, your coding is <a class="whatever" href="http://link.htm">, and they appear to be what you want. In the navbar and wish list, you have it as <a href="link.htm" class="whatever">. It might be a Netscape thing.

2. With regard to the text and headings in the middle, I can't tell you without looking at the style sheet itself, but I do know that clicking on the Decrease Font made them all look correct... *grin*... Supposedly, the Class Selector property is supported in Nav4, and is a little buggy/quirky in IE (see http://webreview.com/wr/pub/guides/style/mastergrid.html), but I can't see anything...

3. With regard to all the stuff at the bottom, sort of a combination of the two. They're the right size after #2, and will probably be okay if you use the class="whatever" following the <a, as opposed to trying to affect the whole paragraph.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

I got this from the stylesheet.

BODY, P  {
      font-family : "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
      font-size : 95%;
      font-weight : normal;
}

try taking the quotes off of Times New Roman.  They may not effect ie, but netscape may not like them.
