I have an app that's been running for almost two years now.  last week client emailed and said should could not open a certain page.  I opened IE and indeed, a particular page will not open, just give a blank page, no error message.  I open the same site in FF, clicked on the problem link and it open perfectly in FF.  Does anyone have any idea what I should look at to remedy this problem

    You mention that the site is in PHP and mySQL. Does it use a template?
    Is it possible that the user's host has turned off "register globals" and no data is reaching the page to create output?

    no, I don't think that's the case, because there are several other links on the page that work just fine. And remember, it works in FF, something caused it to stop for IE

    Problem had to do with the code.  Not sure what, but I just removed the page.  recoded and the link worked fine.
