I built this site in a hurry and haven't been able to test it on a mac yet. Now I've got people telling me their macs choke on it, but I can't test myself.

The current version is at: www.bathymca.org
A possibly fixed version is at: lamoth.com/bathymca

So far I've tested on:
IE5.5/Win
IE6/Win
NN6/Win
NN7/Win
O7/Win

Thanks guys

Anyone with a mac?

the choke is done in IE for Mac-OS-X ... and some others i think.

Camino/Mozillas are ok, because they use the @import tag for the css... not IE.

so

<style type="text/css">
<!--
@import"../style.css";
-->
</style>

this is the problem...

use

<link rel="stylesheet" href="../style.css" type="text/css">

as a test, and you'll see if everyone see your site.

Hmm, if that's the problem I'll have to do a little more rethinking, as I was trying to hide the style sheet from version 4 browsers. Well, thanks, I'll look into it.
I really need to get a hold of a Mac. Every person who's told me there's a problem just says, "it was really messed up." :?

I hate to ask, but if someone has a mac, could they get me a screenshot or something? I have no idea what supposedly looks wrong, all I'm doing now is guessing.

Thanks

Yeah just looks like it's ignoring the CSS. It's quite interesting when something like that happens, it shows up how well laid out the site is, and how readable it would be if something like that were to happen (or it were in a text-only browser, or similar).

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.
