Hi everyone, thank you in advance for anyone able to offer some support on this mater.

I have been asked by a friend to take a look at a website they were working on that seems to have browser compatibility issues with Safari v3.2.1 and up.

If you visit http://www.beautypointresort.com/ in Safari v3.2.1 (or higher) I am told that nothing appears on the screen, if you turn off javascript the page appears correctly but the left hand menus don't click to their destination.

I was hoping someone may be able to test this page in Safari v3.2.1(or higher) and firstly confirm the issue and secondly hopefully be able to shed some light on the problem. For the record, the website is said to be working in all other browsers. I use a PC and it works fine and the owner has confirmed it works fine in MAC Firefox and MAC IE so it seems to be a error just  with Safari v3.2.1 (up).

Thank you and hope to hear back soon.

May be a redundant answer have you ran it through Html Validator.

Yeah, it has picked up some errors that are being fixed on the owners end... I believe it has picked up a couple that may be responsible.

I will post back regarding the outcome of that. I am sorry, I should have updated the initial question to show that it is being fixed for W3C standards.

Fingers crossed.

Unfortunately the error still occurs... There where quite a few validation errors and I was hoping that would be it but unfortunately not.

Can I confirm if you do see the error?

1./ On first load in Safari v3.2.1 (up) you will see a blank white page.
2./ If you disable Javascript the page does load however the left hand menu no longer links to it's destination.

Happens in Safari 4.0 too.

Thanks for your response, it was a silly oversight on my part, just simple a open comment tag that I kept neglecting to see.
