I am not sure why the phone number for aclarus-solutions.com/index.html is displayed in white color in the ipad. It is displayed as blue color in all the browsers.
Also, the drop down menu in  aclarus-solutions.com/about.html does not work in ipad.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

You are using ancient and mostly obsolete techniques. So while it will sort of work, I'm not surprised it doesn't work in modern devices, such as iPad. Unless this is an HTML email (and it doesn't look like it is), this is unacceptable.

Looks like you are using Dreamweaver, maybe an old version? I haven't used Dreamweaver in a million years, but there is probably a setting that will allow you to specify the doctype - it should be HTML5. This is very important. Most likely if you do that, the code that is generated for you will be a little closer to modern standards.


If you don't have the time to learn to code by hand, you need to at least know "best practices", and use tools that generate modern code.


Have a look at some HTML tutorials. Here are a couple of decent links:

Yes I am so behind. I am using Dreamweaver cs5 so it's not that old. What are you using to design your website if not Dreamweaver?

The pages are all html with a bit if css.

i use a text editor. my favorite at the moment is Sublime Text.

here are just a couple major no-no's in modern html.

1. using tables for layout.

2. attributes like width, height, font. most of these are obsolete

3. inline styles. css should be kept in a separate file.

4. inline javascript.

you can keep using Dreamweaver as you're learning, but like i said before, you need to at least know the basics of current standards.  look at those links. and unless there is some very specific reason for not doing so, always use the html 5 doctype.

html/css is not that difficult. just takes practice

I totally agree with your no-no. It makes it very difficult to manage the code with tables. Thanks.
