Does anybody here know what happened to Dave Bilnitzer's great site dealing with the Californian? I have done a Google and Yahoo search and turned up nothing. Does anyone have a URL for this site? I am putting my education site back up and was checking links and apparently he is not on Earthlink anymore. Any help would be appreciated.

The trick to Dave's site, seems to have to do with something different between the Netscape browser, vs. Internet Explorer. I can easily get to Dave's site using IE - however, going in the exact same way using Netscape doesn't work! And that capital T is part of the issue.

Weird! I can get the site with Netscape and Opera but without the picture of the rockets on the first page. However, neither Netscape nor Opera will progress beyond the first page.

Put it down to work in progress.

And I can get it using IE at home, but couldn't get it using IE at work this afternoon.

Gremlins, maybe?

the capital 'T' explains it. I had the URL with a lower case 't' in it. So that explains why I kept getting the error message. Thanks everyone!

I did inform Dave of this problem several weeks ago, & we put it down to the differences between Netscape & IE. However, if other's want to inform Dave, go right ahead, with more information & victims, it may be easier to trouble shoot the problem

The main difference between Netscape and IE is that Netscape is less forgiving of small errors in the html. I always test anything I do with Netscape because of this. If it works in Netscape, it will work in IE and probably in Opera. Netscape is fussy about <p> tags and will not accept less than perfection in tables code. IE will overlook the absence of a [/tr] tag. If a [td] is followed by a [tr] tag, it starts a new table row regardless. You test your work with IE and you think it's fine. Try it in Netscape and it goes crazy.

Dave seems to have problems with his frames in Netscape and Opera. I wish him luck because trouble-shooting html can be a circus. When you make an error, you get no error message. You just get a weird display.

The thing that drives me around the bend is validating HTML with the W3C engine, then finding that IE or NN doesn't render it properly.
