    infinite loop

    becky.coursey
      When people visit my web page and scroll down, the words become souped together in an illegible mass. The more they scroll down, the more jumbled and nasty it becomes.
      A friend told me that I had a frame problem causing the web page to load in an "infinite loop." How can I remove the frame? Instead of going straight to my page, it is pointing to this frame which then points to the home page, which then points to the frame....thus infininte loop. ARGH

          instead of describing the problem and asking for guessing, pls give the url
          address to the uploaded page.

          there probably is a "house of mirrors" frameset on it.
          Did you make the page? Did you use frames? Why?

            Just one of the many reasons not to use frames. Can you post a link to the
            page, please?

              The page isn't live. It is on our school's server at www.russellville.kyschools.us/pantherpost3/index.html

              I used a design by WordPress and changed a few things. I didn't intend to use frames, but I honestly don't know a lot about how Dreamweaver works...I'm learning as I go.

                there is a page at that url. Is that the page with the problem?

                the only thing that jumps out is this:
                </a><class="last"> <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li></ul>

                there is no html tag starting with <class

                There is an html attribute named class

                Don't see any frames or anything that would cause what you describe as a
                hall of mirrors.

                  However, what you are describing is not a problem with how DW works. It's a
                  problem with your understanding of HTML. DW just writes HTML.

                        Opera's info for the page indicates the server isn't telling browsers what encoding was used for the page, and there's not meta tag in the head to fall back on, so browsers are guessing.

                        Opera goes with utf-8 and things look fine. Firefox 2 and IE 6 are assuming it's iso-8859-1, so some unexpected characters are showing up throughout the page.

                        Try adding this meta tag into the head of the html:

                        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
