I'm currently sub-contracting work from a company that requires me to get work from there web page nightly, I CAN"T view it right! I need help! I've been using my girlfriends laptop (XP) to retreive and print my work every night, but that sux. I can't beleive that it's a MS only page thats retarded. here a link to the main file I can't see right I put it on my webspace.

Were you see what appears to be a crappy barcode SHOULD be square boxes to write info in them, When viewed with IE it's fine...

BTW I've tried Konqueror, Mozilla, Netscape and Opera.

Thank you

Did you maquarade Opera as an early version of IE?

Could you possibly convince them to correct their html code? Apparently they use non-standard html coding that IE only can render. Tell them they limit their customer base that way which is true.

No how do you do that? I doubt they'd fix it, as you know were far and few between. The win people are happy... That probally enough for them.

I see their webmaster knows nothing about html.
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0"><title>ProBusinessTools</title>

Look under "network" in your preferences and you should see "browser identification".

Your mirror of the page gave the same results no matter what I tried. I see tags in the source that I don't see mentioned in my html coding sites, which means that microsoft has deliberately broken (embrace and extend) their html for any other browser.
