Hi, created a webisite using frontpage and all fine in Explorer 6 however in Firefox there are shotcuts missing and it looks terrible.

Any clues to why this would be ?

Right from the start, you should develop in Firefox or another standards-compliant browser and debug for IE 6 and 7. Not the other way around. Having seen the non-compliant code that FP can output, I'd say that you need to clean it up first of all before you can debug effectively. click here

You need to take the script tags out of the top secton of your HTML as you have them round the end head tag, title tags and the body tag, taking them out should make the website visable in FF.

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
</SCRIPT>

Not really sure why you have them there cause you haven't got any JavaScript there.

Hi 2StrokeTim,

First of all you have not declared a document type.

Secondly, if you click the following link, it will launch the W3C validator and identify all of the validation errors within your web page.

Which duplicates my link ;-)

You have loads of mistakes. You can use Firefox to check them - it has a validation plugin.

The following addy is the validator with your site added:-

Lol - it's the same output as codemeister's. I hope he wasn't put off as the list is rather long, though a lot of stuff is trivial.

Sorry Kemistri,

At least 2stroketim should get the message that standards compliance is important.
