    Mozilla problem

      A website that works perfectly in IE appears briefly when using Mozilla but then disappears after about 2 secs and then shows error 404 message.
      Any suggestions please.
      Website address is www.andrewaarons.com

          There is a refresh - and the page it links to is not there ?

          There is a missing > on the line above. Maybe that is the causing the
          difference between IE and Mozilla.

          The same affect appears with Safari

            Also note you refresh was linking to index.html not index.hml

                Thanks Malcolm. I tidied the code up but problem remains. Just wondering - the page contains the ieupdate.js code on it so as Flash elements work straight away (without having to activate them first) and there is one page on the site that is .asp. Could they be the problem?

                  I'm not a great fan of Flash - so don't use it - so someone else will
                  need to advise on that one.

                  One small point

                  <link href="css%20styles/body%20text.css" rel="stylesheet"
                  type="text/css">

                  It is advised that you do not have spaces in file names ( indicated
                  here by the %20. I'm fairly sure that this would not cause the problem
                  - but it doesn't help. I suggest you change the filename to
                  /css/bodyText.css

                  Interesting site - let us know when you have it fixed
