I've tested my validated code in IE7, Firefox 2.0.0.4, and Opera 9.21, and it works in those browsers. I am particularly interested in how my site displays in the current version of Safari.

My site's at http://ml-rosenberg.com/index.html

Thanks,
Howard

Are you sure you checked

Are you sure you checked this in actual browsers? Or is the top content supposed to go over top of the logo?
Also, you have some html validation issues.

Your page has no heading

Your page has no heading with styles disabled, so I don't actually know where I am!

This:

0&&parent.frames.length) {
d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i

means nothing to me and seems unnecessary, what is it?

Your articles would possibly be better marked up as a definition list as well Wink

Yes, I'm sure.

I checked it in all three browsers mentioned just before I posted this, and I validated the HTML. Here's the result: "This Page Is Valid HTML 4.01 Strict!" from http://validator.w3.org/.

No, the top content is not supposed to go over top of the logo.

What browser are you looking at it in.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Your page has no heading with styles disabled." Which heading is missing? Which styles are disabled?

The Javascript you posted speeds up image handling, among other things. You can ignore it.

Why would the "articles would possibly be better marked up as a definition list"?

Tried it in most popular

Tried it in most popular browsers. Firefox 2, IE7, IE6, Opera---all have this issue.

As far as the errors, there is a bunch of this going on:

<" + "/" + letter not allowed here
Cause:

The 2 characters "");
Good document.write("<\/h1>");

Open in Firefox. Click "view > styles > no page style". You see your site doesn't actually have any sort of title or log explaining what it is?

That's what the Googlebot sees, as well as screenreaders.

I think the masses of code in the HTML probably negates what little speed there was even gained on the images. I'd ditch it.

It would make more sense semantically.

Strange

Yet in my three browsers it displays fine. I don't get any errors. I wonder what's going on?

What resolution is your screen at? Mine's at 800x600.

1. Thanks for the info about the heading. I'll add it.
2. I'll remove the javascript and see what, if any, difference it makes.
3. With regard to the definition list, I'm curious as to why it would make more sense semantically.

Need suggestions

I changed my resolution to 1024x768 and reproduced the problem.

Anyone know why my page works at 800x600 but not at the higher resolutions?

What can I do so that my Web page works at the higher resolutions as well as it works at 800x600.

What's with the article

What's with the article titles cunningly disquised as links that dont link?
Underlined text is the standard for a link, it annoyed me to click there and stay exactly were I was.
It would also make much more sense for SEO and usability / accessibility to have them as links, they are more descriptive of the place you will go to than "more".

I just had to wait for far too many seconds because the more link made adobe (painfully slowly) open :scared: - WARN ME IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE ME OPEN A PDF! :curse:

Looks like you've been busy today giving feedback. Good for you!

FF: What's with the article titles cunningly disquised as links that dont link? Underlined text is the standard for a link, it annoyed me to click there and stay exactly were I was.

Me: That wasn't done on purpose, so I can't take credit for using any cunning. However, it's a good point and I will fix it.

FF: It would also make much more sense for SEO and usability / accessibility to have them as links, they are more descriptive of the place you will go to than "more".

Me: If you notice, the sentence before each "more" ends abruptly. That's done to motivate the reader to keep reading. On the other hand, your point that "they are more descriptive of the place you will go" is well taken.

FF: I just had to wait for far too many seconds because the more link made adobe (painfully slowly) open Scared - WARN ME IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE ME OPEN A PDF! Cursing.

Me: What kind of warning would you like?

Freddy is right about PDF

Freddy is right about PDF links. A link normally opens a new html page, and that's what people have come to expect. If you are going to break their expectations the least you can do is warn them, even with something so simple as "link text (PDF)". In fact any link that doesn't follow the normal convention should warn the user about that.
