Hoot! Very appropriate!

Seriously, swamprat, Microsoft doesn't conform to standards.

Keep in mind that this is a forum to answer your questions about Linux, so you are less likely to get a sympathetic ear when you suggest that the arguably best browser in existence (Firefox) is broken because it can't/won't conform to the latest cheesy Microsoft hacks.

Sorry for being so partisan, but I think most folks here look for FOSS solutions.

Thanks all for you replies to my question.

Yes I know MS sucks; this isnít news to anyone and Iím not surprised that my web page isnít working well with Firefox. At least no I know why.

My question has been answered, and as far as Iím concerned the reasons the page seems to only be working on IE is good enough for me. I havenít tried any other browsers.

When I get some time Iíll try to read the docs for Kompozer and redo the page at that time, but in the mean time the person for whom the page was put up is happy and that also makes me happy.

So, again thanks all.

Apologies if this has already been mentioned.

Several years ago when I was reseraching web authoring tools, FrontPage was widely reported as being one of the worst.

I settled on a "smart editor" (Bluefish) rather than a WYSIWYG tool such as FrontPage. If you want to use WYSIWYG, I'd look for a tool that is standards-compliant.

few problems i see. #1 stop using FrontPage it sucks as a markup builder.

see that link for the bad code it created for you and why it is not working in FF.

if you are unwilling or unable to stop using FrontPage, then at least look into using as it has a markup builder that is w3c compliant unlike FrontPage.

Dreamweaver is much better and is w3c compliant.

also check out that list of markup builders.
