Page not loading for some

I have a page at http://tropotravel.com/migration.  I have some folks reporting to me that the page is not loading.  I can not recreate the problem on my computer at home or at work.  I can't figure out why it might be hanging.  I wouldn't worry if one or two people complained, but I've had five complaints in 24 hours.  Can someone help??

First of all you could really simplify your code a lot...I noticed it was not made by hand, but using the Hotdog editor....I'll strip unneeded code and put the result here....and in the mean time check for any obvious mistakes....

Mac browsers are a lot more sensitive.

Here is the changed code...you started a table in the middle of another table...and NEVER closed it again...NS for the Mac or PC are both very sensitive.....

See if this code works for you:

the link above doesn't work becuase of the "." at the end, but when I sorted that I didn't get any problems loading. I even went to http://tropotravel.com and went through the link from there. did you ask the people who complained what kind of browser they were using?

Yeah, that "." was just a bonehead mistake.  I've resent messages to the last two people that complained asking about browsers/versions.  I know one of the people was using Netscape 4+ on a Mac.

You might have to play around a bit with font sizes but I would suggest you put all of the font sizes in styles and use that for displaying them the size you want...

Your page doesn't load for me either... win98 Netscape 4.76

You have a stray "table  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" tag right before you
pasted the Bravenet counter code.

This table tag was never closed and prevents NS from loading the page.

It loads fine in IE, but not Netscape. Netscape loads ok but shows nothing if a TABLE is not properly closed. I think DreamMaster got it right.

I looked at the code ten times and couldn't see that.  I had a complete table there before.  I changed the page and deleted some things and missed that when I deleted.

Thanks for your help!
