I forgot - the site is still in AS2.
Just to be clear.
Relief - well sort of.
I uninstalled the last Flash version (10.3 latest built that I downloaded a couple of days ago) on all my browsers.
Then I downloaded the older 10.2 and installed, and the problem was gone. I'm on MacOSX Lion, by the way.
So this must be a bug in the last flashplayer.
Cost me five hours and a bucket of sweat.
And from now on, I'll be pretty scared to give the flashplayer an update, that's a fact.
Of course it doesn't really matter if you are "afraid" to update. It matters if your clients/viewers update or not.
I couldn't get to the website to see if it happens to me (I do have 10.3) so it would seem you have bigger problems than the text...
Just realized it was because it is missing a "w."
I'm using 10.3 and it looks all right to me.
