It's true!

If you look at this page in FF you'll see the Introduction video on the right. When I viewed it in VirtualBox-WinXP-IE6 it gives me something called "video essay: Florida Bay..."

So I wondered how I could check if it was my VBox and toddled over to Browsershots and asked for Chrome on Linux and IE7 and 8. Chrome looks the same as FF.

IE6, 7 and 8 return a different video!!! (pics attached) How is this possible?

I also noticed in VBox that IE doesn't scroll smoothly and scrunches the text - it did it in the Browsershot IE7 as well.

IE6 also stuffs up the columns Sad

Ack! no files attached

Ack!

Mr Tony it drops the attached files when you preview and there's no option to add them in this post...'cos I can't Edit the first post and used Quote and there's no Attach Files option.

You'll just have to wait till I get a reply so I can attach them in my reply.

Your YouTube IDs don't match

Your YouTube IDs don't match up, you've got both of these in your HTML:

http://www.youtube.com/v/75D56JICBRQ
http://www.youtube.com/v/MzQozqdWJ0Q

IE's reading one and the others are reading the other.

Oops!

Oops! Thanks eagle eyes Smile

Do I actually need both those statements? As you can see, I copied it because I found it validated - the YouTube one never does. However I just checked the site I got it from and they've changed to YouTube!

Also...should I put it in something - ?box - which will enlarge and dim the screen to view?
