My website won't work in Netscape!!?? - (Tables??)

Hello there,
For some reason NETSCAPE can't view my website. ( The actual site, not the Flash opener) I think it has to do with tables, because the sections that I have that don't use more than one table show up fine.

Somebody PLEASE help me !  :
My website is wupaper.cjb.net

Please someone try and help ASAP !

(Maybe view my source, and try to correct it??)

Note: The page works perfectly in MSIE

I loaded that document into homesite and it detected a few hundred nesting errors and misplaced tags...  The cause of this is probably Frontpage.  It's notorious for doing this.  It of course works in IE because microsoft made both programs...  I often wonder if they make Frontpage to generate crap like this because they know netscape won't parse it, or if it's just negligence...  anyway, it needs seriously cleaned up.

Netscape won't display the page at all if it's all contained in one table which has no close tag or has a nesting error so bad that it can't recover, and I believe that's what's happening here.  Also sometimes styles not supported by netscape can mess it up.

You might want to try opening the html file up in notepad, and lining up all of the td and tr tags so that they match without center and div tags between them...  Trying this in frontpage will probably only make it worse...

Thanks. How can Microsoft be doing this?? Will the page work better if it is all in one big table?

Front page will probably be less likely to screw up the code beyond Netscape's parsing capabilities with less table nesting.  But if it's done cleanly it shouldn't matter.

Either way, you should try and learn html, so you can go through the code after finishing the design in front page, and fix it.  I personally always just look at the code, since the WYSIWYG's drive me crazy.  Homesite does this nicely as a glorified text editor with lots of web page building helpers...

Thanx. I am fixing it now.

Did you like my design at least ? =)

Yes, I liked the design.  I didn't mean to sound like is was done badly.  It wasn't your fault that Front Page does tht to web pages.  I was mearly trying to say that Front Page itself was programmed badly.  I have an aversion to most microsoft products...

Anyway, best of luck!  If you need any pointers on html, feel free to ask on EE!

P.S.  It took me a while to respond because I got locked out of my e-mail and I received no notification of your comment AND I tried to change e-mails to another one and it never sent my verification e-mail so my EE account was frozen.  Ack!
