    browser compatibility

    My index.htm is a frame page. Tools/Page Options set for IE & Netscape 4+. the frames box is checked.
    So can anyone help me understand why Preview in browser Netscape the window is blank. Yet View/Source shows all the html on the FP page? Other non-frames pages in the web appear normally. The whole web looks fine when viewed in IE.

    Re: browser compatibility

    Actually solved my own problem. I created a new index.htm with frames. Now Netscape can 'see' it. Now got another problem.
    One page has a collapsed list, which looks cool in IE. It's not collapsed in Netscape.
    Another page has table borders. These too are gone in Netscape.
    Anyone have an idea here? Searching the help files for hours and not come up with anything.
    Thanx

    Re: browser compatibility

    Could you post a copy of the HTML for the page? A FrontPage-generated table with borders visible in Netscape look something like this:

    <table width="100%" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
    <thead>
    <tr>
    <td width="80%"><font face="Arial" size="3">Column A</font></td>
    <td width="20%"><font face="Arial" size="3">Column B</font></td>
    </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td width="80%" valign="top" align="left">[b]Data... etc. etc.

    Re: browser compatibility

    Thanx for the quick response. I think I have the first row of the table, (3 columns, border on top & btm of cells). Here it is. Mostly greek to me. But willing to learn.
    [/i]</font>[/b]<font color="#0000FF" face="Georgia" size="1">While Stock Lasts</font></p>
    <div align="center">
    <center>
    <table border="0" width="461" style="line-height: 100%; margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 1" height="434" cellpadding="5">
    <tr>
    <td width="120" height="125" style="border-top-style: ridge">[img]pictures/bread_small.jpg[/img]</td>
    <td width="178" height="125" valign="top" style="border-top-style: ridge">B<font size="2">lack & Decker
    Bread maker #B1510-04. One only.

    Wake up to the smell of fresh baked bread!!!

    </font>
    </td>
    <td width="117" height="125" style="border-top-style: ridge">
    <h1 align="center"><font color="#FF0000" size="6">*$</font></h1>
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td valign="top" align="justify" width="120" style="border-top-style: ridge" height="145">
    <p align="left">[img]pictures/faucet1_small.jpg[/img]</td>
    <td width="178" valign="top" align="left" height="145" style="border-top-style: ridge">

    Re: browser compatibility

    I love the smell of fresh baked bread. But who will clean the thing?

    Back to the question at hand. This line has a "0" width border, so you should not see a border in any browser:

    <table border="0" width="461" style="line-height: 100%; margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 1" height="434" cellpadding="5">

    If you edit this manually in the HTML view (change "0" to "1" or "2"), does your preview change in the way you want? If not, the above table might be inside a bigger table...

    Re: browser compatibility

    jscher: thanx. Changed the 0 to 2 and then I realised that I wasn't dealing with a table border at all. It's cell properties, that have a custom border, in this case top & bottom. I am using the 'table' to help the layout of the page. Sorry used the wrong terminology.
    appreciate your interest.

    Re: browser compatibility

    Oh, yes -

    style="border-top-style: ridge"

    Netscape 4.x will apply only a single style to the border of an object, and the selector is border-style (rather than an individual side name).

    However, you could try setting the width of the other borders to 0 and seeing if that does the trick -

    border-left-width: 0px
    border-right-width: 0px

    etc. I haven't tested this.

    Re: browser compatibility

    So I fiddled around with your suggestions for nearly two hours. They seemed to work fine in IE but not in Netscape. Wonder if I shouldn't just create a line.gif to do the same thing. Just wish that FP2000 gave me more control over placement of graphics. There's no click and drag.
    Really appreciate you suggestions. Where do I send the bread?
    thanx again.
