Here is the address: LedZepp
Ok, my problem is this. When you go to the site and just leave your mouse over the links for a short bit it really screws them up, all other parts of the page show through. If you leave your mouse on it it starts to work properly. I have validated my css and everything seems fine. It also works in my local files. It may be a lycos issue.

Besides that, what are your thoughts on the design? It seems to work on all resolutions (800x600 - 1152 X 864 have been tested) and in both IE and Firefox. Thanks for your help.

I will attach the css and layout pages.

I may be different... but you are all the same.

The w3 validator don't like it much either: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.members.lycos.co.uk%2Frockmania%2F

Attached is a pic of your site as seen in Safari:

2 things. #1 I can't explain the lack of a menu and etc. in safari but there is no content yet. The only things the validator hates is the lack of alt tags. All that other stuff is javascript added by tripod after I upload my files. Nothing I can do...

The problem lies within the urls. Replace all instances of the ampersand with

& amp;

(without the space)

Your mouseover effects don't work in FF, and there is also a noticeable gap in IE.

Really, all I am seeing is the lack of alt tags and stuff added by tripod... lol. I know my links don't work that was the question, as well. My site worked perfectly fine in IE andd FF on all resolutions I checked. I uploaded it to test some php and nothing works. I think I need to buy a host.

Black Hole Hover and how is my site?

I just made my layout into functions. Like so:

<?
function PageStart() {
?>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
	<head>
		<title>
			Led Zeppelin --> Rock Mania
		</title>
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mainstyle.css">
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="links.css">
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
	</head>

	<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#ffffff">
	<CENTER>
		<div id="wrapper">
<?
}
function Head() {
?>
		<div id="header">
			 <div id="header1">
			 
			 </div>
		</div>
	<div id="menu" align="left">
			<ul>	
				<li><a href="info.php?link=band" class="band"> </a></li>
				<li><a href="info.php?link=band" class="album"> </a></li>	
				<li><a href="info.php?link=band" class="songs"> </a></li>
				<li><a href="info.php?link=band" class="login"> </a></li>	
				<li class="right"> </li>
			</ul>
			
	</div>
<?
}
function LeftBar() {
?>
		<div id="left">
				<div id="The_Band_News">
					<img src="band_news_txt.gif">
					<? include ("Recent_Band_News.php"); ?>					
				</div>
				<div id="The_Site_News">
					<img src="site_news_txt.gif">
					<? //include ("Recent_Site_News.php"); ?>				
				</div>
		</div>
<?
}
function Content1() {
?>
		<div id="main">
			<div id="content" align="left">
				<? //include ("Welcome.php"); ?>
			</div>
		</div>
<?
}
function PageEnd() {
?>
		</div>
	</CENTER>
	</body>
</html>
<?
}
?>

Than I called them in index.php
<?
include ("layout_func.php");

	PageStart();
	Head();
	LeftBar();
	Content1();
	PageEnd();
?>

It makes my easier to change on links and it removes some very annoying tripod add frames becauase tripod only puts them on html pages. Laughing out loud

FIXED!!! The link problem. I am very glad. I preloaded the images like so:

 <div style="display:none">
 	<img src="albums_hover.gif">
	<img src="login_hover.gif">
	<img src="songs_hover.gif">
	<img src="theband_hover.gif">
 </div>

Still sorry for all the people using safari(not that any of you care about my site Tongue ), I'm sure It'll work when I get some content in.
