Hello,

Why (just) Safari can't display this tag: <INPUT NAME="FILE1" TYPE="FILE" class="input" size="25">?

Instead of the field there are some letters displayed.

Thanks for any help

I see that the <FORM> tag is correct, but not all the other <INPUT> fields, where still the </INPUT> is missing.
I searched for issues of safari browser in regads to the file input, but didn't see any that corresponds to your case...

I got a clue looking at this page: http://www.creativstudios.at/cgi-bin/forms/forms.cgi?form=1

Safari doesn't display the text field on the left side of the "Browse" button, but a text "no files selected" in German "Keine Dateien ausgewählt".

Well because of any reason, it just displays the 2 first and last letters of this sentence: "Ke...lt".

thanks for your efforts
