Would someone here know how to fix a problem that is evident on the Mac and Firefox but works in Explorer? My web designer has provided me with a scrolling text box on the home page of my site that I may modify in Front Page. Please view my home page to see what I mean. http://www.naturalneighborhood.com

I believe you'll find that the marquee tag is a Microsoft invention. In other words, it is not part of the HTML spec and may be ignored or not fully implemented by other browsers.

Perhaps your developer can use some _standards_ that will be more globally acceptable.

I tried your page on every browser in the house on both Windows XP Pro SP2 to Mac OSX Panther and Tiger. NO BROWSER on any platform except IE in XP SP2 will display that textbox with scrolling text properly. All the other browsers look exactly the same. What you are using is Microsoft code that no one else supports. I am sure there is a way to have that box work with other browsers. I was sort of suprised that Firefox even in XP displayed it wrong.

Have a look at your markup validation. Hopefully that gives you some insight: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...borhood.com%2F

I'd personally have your web developer try out several browsers to ensure compatibility for his/her programming before posting. We develop on Mac but spend much time getting the results to be synonymous with each

I agree. Much of our time is spent sorting out IE6 hacks to get sites to render on that dreaded MS browser.
