    pop up not working cannot work out why

    For some reason the pop up picutre of the book is not working on my site.
    I cannot work out why?
    http://www.malthusconsultancy.com/feedback.htm

    It works fine when l preview in browser mode but not when l ftp.
    I am baffled?

    This is the coding l am using:

    <td><div align="center">[img]book.jpg[/img]</div></td>

    When l click on the book l get an unexpected error message.

    Does the linked-to image actually exist on the website?

    From what I can see, the pop-up should show
    http://www.malthusconsultancy.com/largebook.jpg
    but that does not show up on its own anyway.

    Just to give you my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> to help you in the future. I had a look at your css file ( just being nosy <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>).

    CSS files are case sensitive and it is best to keep in the habit of writing them all in lower case, there is a bit half way down the code that is upper-case. This could help you in the future when things appear to not work. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Thanks for that, l did't think the casing made any difference.

    Thanks for that.
    You may have noticed the same css is not used throughout.
    I will be looking into this at a later date.
    I tried using the same css but l had problems with pages not being viewed correctly.

    No Probs

    I wasn't scutinising it, just being nosey, that's all <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I have added this link to assist other Loungers, best look at the underlying code to see my point.

    Re: pop up not working cannot work out why

    Yes, it is one of those frustrating things that I found out just by trial and error...it is more with class definition: An example would be this:
    <pre>// main.css

    .jerry{
    background-color: Aqua;
    width: 50px;
    height: 50px;
    }

    .Jerry{
    background-color: Fuchsia;
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;
    }
    </pre>

    You can see that one is in lower case the other class is in title case. They will be viewed totally differently depending how you write them in your HTML. I therefore make a point of doing everything in lowercase. Dependent on the box that the files sit on can dramatically affect the way they are shown. We have this very specific problem at my college where a lot of our files sit on UNIX boxes. I therefore get in a habit of keeping everything the same...just in case <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    This is indeed one of the most frustrating things about html/css etc. A lot of html tags are not case sensitive (eg. <a href... = <A HREF...) but when using frame targets ( <img src=/S/puke.gif border=0 alt=puke width=60 height=15> ) for example, suddenly "TOP" and "top" are completely different beasts.

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Yep totally agree and with the advent of XHTML I have "retrained" my fingers to keep away from the shift/caps lock key <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
