Out of curiosity I checked the page in Opera and it does work in Opera. It also worked first try in IE. In Mozilla the homepage displayed but I got server error messages when trying links. I ran it through an online validator and only came up with a few errors. All related to frames. It might not be that hard for him to change. The errors were: (http://watson.addy.com/) line #9: unknown attribute "FRAMESPACING" for element <FRAMESET>. line #9: unknown attribute "BORDER" for element <FRAMESET>. line #9: unknown attribute "FRAMEBORDER" for element <FRAMESET>. line #10: unknown attribute "TARGET" for element <FRAME>. I'm a bit puzzled why any of those would cause the problem but I'm no HTML expert. Douglas S. Oliver wrote: > > Thanks for the reply Fuzzy, but like I said, IE didn't go to those sites at > first.
