    For no reason that I can find, the CSS for one of my sites isn't functioning when viewed via Safari. Was fine last changes on my part....what the heck...?!?

    The site:

    The CSS file:

    Crazy thing is that the pattern isn't consistent. On the landing page, both text and link appear incorrectly. On the home page, the links below the photos and at the top of the page are fine, but the body text and footnote link text is wrong. Same for the rest of the pages.

    Anybody know what the deal is? I haven't changed a thing on the site, so can't be some errant new typo, etc.

    Thankfully, it appears correctly in Firefox.

    Thanks in advance for your wisdom.....

    My Mac is at home so sadly I'm on Windows, but in Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4 on Windows they look exactly the same to me.

    Just glancing at your css file, you should get rid of the empty selectors at the top, i.e. body { }, p { }, and td { }.

    Do you think you could post some screenshots with what you think is displaying incorrectly? Your body text looks fine to me, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean by it being wrong.

    Might be cache issue on your side. I looked at the site with Safari for Windows and it looked the same as Firefox.

    Color me embarrassed.....

    Aw, geeze..... In my frustration, I cleared the history, not the cache. I have Safari set up so differently from Firefox, that sometimes I space on what needs to change and where. My bad.

    That fixed it. For someone who's been on Macs more than 20 years, it's sometimes the simplest things that slip between the cracks.

    Thank you both so much for checking in!
