Page loads differently in Netscape

I created a simple webpage in MS Frontpage 2000.  A three cell table that has information in each cell.  When I load it into IE there is no problem.  The page fits on the screen as it is supposed to.  When I load it using Netscape the page is huge, about 3 times bigger than it is suposed to be.  Which forces the viewer to use the navigation bars in the window to see it.  How can I correct this?

The problem appears to be in your reference to the flash component. In on line it sets the width and height in the second portion to 700 and 484 pixels respectively when your actual width and height is 395 and 321 as listed in the first reference. See below.


<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash4/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0" id="bb" width="395" height="321">
        <param name="movie" value="bb.swf">
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF"><embed name="bb" src="bb.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" width="700" height="484" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">

In FP go to the HTML view and change the width and height in the second reference to the same as the first one.

This I believe will solve your issue.

Some code examples or a link to the page would help in formulating and answer to your question.

Also, the version of Netscape you are using. Different versions of Netscape render different HTML differently.

My suggestion. When developing web pages for cross-browser compatability, NEVER USE FRONTPAGE! Use something like dreamweaver and homesite. they have more tools to make sure the HTML gets rendered correctly in any browser.

If you are making Web pages, a good idea is to check your site in IE, Different version of Netscape, Opera, AOL, and possibly WebTV...

Thanks for the suggestions.  I am not sure of the exact version of Netscape but it is fairly new. Maybe one version down from the latest one.  I used a computer at work and I am not there now so I can't give you the exact version.  Is there a piece of code that can be inserted to counteract this effect in Netscape?
Anyway here is the site.  It is just an opening page to what will eventually become a full website.  http://www.bettyboopbonanza.com

Thanks for the help.
