Hi guys, I really appreciate you reading this. I have a client that cannot view my website correctly. Attached is a screenshot of the rendering of my website on her computer. I cannot replicate this error. Has anybody any ideas why this page will not display correctly on her computer. Iím guessing it is something to do with the CSS. www.ecwebcreation.com blush.gif

That is pretty bizarre! Do you know what browser your client has?


for Windows Explorer you need to use ActiveX <object> tags surrounding your <embed> tags
Flash instructions

You should consider changing your doctype to HTML, and there are a few minor structural errors (additional </td>, </tr>, and </table> where they're not needed. Also check your CSS with the validator, mostly background colors missing.

Thank you soooo much for the prompt advice. You bought up some very intereting points. I am working on them now. The browser th client was using was IE, very strange!

Thanks again

I'm not familiar with the javascript functions you're using to embed your flash objects - it looks to me like they aren't generating the ActiveX tags. I'd really recommend you use the Adobe flash techniques for embedding Flash in HTML using javascript

Adobe javascript instructions
