    Hi all!

    I am having trouble getting our website to display properly on macs. The stylesheet doesn't seem to be called properly, and some flash animations won't display either.

    I then made a mac friendly version, which basically meant removing the flash portion at the top of the page.

    This leads me to believe that there must be some kind of tag that a mac OS needs to view the page properly. Is this the case? Did the HTML that I added to the top of the page to embed the flash muck up the coding, maybe?

    The page that wont display properly is

    The mac friendly version is

    Any help is much appreciated,

    Isn't the doctype declaration supposed to come before EVERYTHING in the document? Like, even the first HTML tag?

    and it looks like you have a couple sets of opening/closing html tags... is that legit?

    also, make sure you validate, bro.

    and just as a side note, resizing and positioning the browser window is annoying as crap. luckily it's possible to disable that in mozilla firebird/fox...

    I think Brian nailed it. Fix your doctype declaration and multiple <html> tags and validate the page and you should be set.

    You've also got tags misordered. For example at the very top you've got this (I've simplified somewhat):



    You need to remember that the last tag opened should be the first tag closed.

    Additionally I see table tags that aren't closed at all, which (besides being invalid code) can cause a lot of issues when you're trying to put tables within tables.
