Why in "Microsoft Internet Explorer 5" I cannot get my WebPage font colors or background colors to show? I have tried just about everything.
In the "Tools", "Internet Options", "Accessbilities" (everything is unchecked) & "Colors" I have checked: "Use Windows colors". All I get is a white background and black fonts on everything? Now, some friends of mine have the same version as me, (Microsoft Internet Explorer 5) and my WebPages and other stuff works fine on their computer? So, what gives?
I have gone back to using "Netscape Comunicator 4.61" because my pages look fine there.
Thanks!                     Jack

The URL shouldn't be the problem.  Any page that I try to see on the Explorer does the same thing.
Here is my Web Site anyway.
