Hi!

Although I see the web site perfectly in IE 6 and Netscape 7.2 locally on my computer, after uploading it on the web hosting server, I don't see the style in Netscape.

It seems that Netscape practically ignores the css file now.

This happened after adding the hovering effect, but again, I didn't have any problem on my computer when I tested it.

Does anybody know what is the problem?

The web site is www.voyageurairways.com

Thanks.

CSS in Netscape

Possibly the browser is using a cached and out of date version of your stylesheet (images and/or html).

Re: CSS in Netscape

How did you save the style sheet? What did you use to make it?

For some reason when I try to look at it my browser downloads it instead of displaying in. :?

I can view the site in NS 7.1, 7.2 and 8.0 beta as well as FF 1.0.1

Same for me using the above mentioned browsers... NS says the css is of type application/x-pointplus (style sheet)

Perhaps that is the problem. Maybe if it were saved as plain text it would work as it should. Smile

Netscape problems

Thank you very much for your answers. I am sorry that I couldn't come back in time last days.

What you sugest about my css is very weird. I did my css in Dreamweaver, and it is not the first css...

Plus, everything worked just time on my last version of the web site (so can't be an old version in cache). I just added the hovering effect on this version.

I took it back now, but the style still can't be seen... This is even more weird.

Any ideea how can I fix that?

Thank you very much!

CSS in Netscape

What is not working? It looks the same to me in FF 1.0.1 and NS 7.1 and 7.2... the hover seems to be working as well.

I can view your css using the FF web developer toolbar but I can't access it via the url... see my previous post

CSS in Netscape

Ahh... didn't realize we were talking about IE vs other browsers... sorry, my bad.
The pages don't look the same... there is a grey border in IE that is not there in FF... I'll have to check out which table cells are being affected...

CSS in Netscape

My css file is simply ignored in Netscape, this is the problem. And I don't understand why the whole css is ignored... and in the whole web site.

Ohhh, this gets me mad...

And I don't understand why, using the same browser, on my computer, everything is just fine.

CSS in Netscape

Well for grins and chuckles can you take your css file... copy it to notepad and save it in notepad with a different name...then upload that css file and make the appropriate change to your page?
Since NS and FF want to download the css and not display it...
because the css is of type application/x-pointplus (style sheet)

CSS in Netscape

Maybe the server needs to define a mime type?

Category Content-Type File Suffix
type application/x-pointplus css

Thank you very much.
I don't think is the server, because like I said, the other versions of the web site, with this type of css and the rest, worked perfectly on both IE and Netscape.
And anyway, I can't control de server, is a web hosting company that keeps our web site...

CSS in Netscape

Well, to muddle this up even more.... If I use edit css via Firefox then the styles show up just fine... as soon as I close the edit sidebar and reload the page, the styles disappear.

The html and css both validate.
Still can't view the css via the url however, so THAT has to be where the problem is... what is causing the problem eludes me at the moment.

Sorry to be of no help... I'll keep playing around and see if the light goes on for me ..

CSS in Netscape

OK... another slight difference...
In FF the page never says done in the status bar whereas it does in IE. Don't know if this is causing your problem or not... but it is different behavior so may be a piece of the puzzle?

Did you ever get a chance to try your css file in notepad as I suggested earlier?

FWIW:
I took your html and css... saved both in notepad.
Your styles work just fine on my test page by doing that.

CSS in Netscape

Tomorrow I am going to upload the old version of the web site. Maybe starting from that point on and adding the changes I did after that, one by one, I will be able to figure the problem.
I am so curious to find where is the problem.
Thanks very much rmfred for your efforts in helping me! I appreciate it!

I've uploaded the previous version of the web site, which has run for a while and was ok on Netscape.

But surprise! That one doesn't work anymore on Netscape!!! Shock

Isn't that crazy? :?:

CSS in Netscape

Strange indeed...
Next Idea:
Take one of your pages... put the css in the head and remove the link to the external sheet and see if the styles show up.

BTW I still think it something to do with the type application/x-pointplus
