It looked fine to me, was that just a way to get people to visit it? ;-)

Anyway, sites that don;t look right are not in the standards, IE5, however is. 'Bount dang time a browser is!

Nope....do not care if anyone clicks on it or not. The site loads but not all the images load. If you check out the site with NS you will see what is missing.

If you mean the banner image, it is loading, but IE appears to be displaying it fully transparent. Try clicking where the image should be and dragging it around to see that it's there. The image also displays oddly in iCab, so it may possibly be the fault of the software that generated the PNG (Quicktime 4.1, looks like).

Nonetheless, for the responent above to blithely state that "sites not displaying correctly must not be standards compliant, because Microsoft said IE5 is so there" is more than a bit na´ve. A lot of sites have problems; so does the browser. Don't get me wrong - I'm generally pleased with IE5 - but not because of any PR I swallowed. In this case it has nothing to do with the site (meaning the HTML page), which you can verify by loading the image in a separate window and still failing to see it (unless you still have the Quicktime plugin handling PNG files instead of the browser itself).

Try saving your PNG images from somewhere else (Graphic Convertor for instance) and see if that helps.

Hi everyone,

Well, after receiving multiple inquiries in
this regard, I've completely updated my web
site to be standards-compliant. I have fixed
every problem, and it now looks exactly the
same under IE5 and Netscape. It also makes
iCab "smile".
