    Ok, i have the answer for you, you were right, it's one stupid site.

    Opera, FireFox, and Safari won't load it... it's one of those idiot sites that you must use Internet Explorer for. In other words the idiot who put the site together did it in such a way that you have to use IE to access it properly.

    So, if you must go there use IE....(YUCK)

    I just went there with the PC with XP using Firefox and same thing, Big empty white space. Every other browser so far I have tried will not show the site correctly except IE.

    Like James pointed out, when Webmasters do that, they cut out a lot of people, as even on the PC more and more people are using alternative browsers.

    What I would do is email them saying that your a company interest in doing business with them, but tell them your business only uses macs, and you can't access the site. That might make the webmaster think twice about building a site that is only IE compliant. Even Microsoft's website can be accessed using a mac, what the heck is Napa thinking.
