Here is a strange problem. I put up a web site a few days ago. One of my friends uses a Mac but she said she can not view it. All she sees is color, but no text. I do not use a Mac so I can not help her.
Is this a common problem or speific to her computer?
The web site is http://www.genwebstalkers.com/ if anyone wants to view it with a Mac. It was made with FrontPage 2003. I could not find any settings on the FP program that mentioned Mac computers.
Perhaps the Mac has some blocking feature?

She is right, we do not see text.

Front page is not a good software application for creating websites for professional use. It does not create the best code. I am about to leave soon so I can not trouble shoot it for you, but I will if the problem has not been discovered by the time I get back. PM me if I forget.

In the mean time, I have attached a screen shot of what we see.

It seems to be Safari-specific. I can see the page in Firefox but I get the same as the last 2 posters using Safari.

Works fine here in Camino. FrontPage is not a very good piece of software if you want totally 100% compatible with everything HTML.

It worked in OmniWeb 5.5.3, but as others have said, not in Safari.

An interesting note is that if you search for the word 'crashed', Safari highlights its location. You still can't see the word.

I must admit though... even after opening the site in Firefox I still couldn't make heads or tails of what it's about...

It's probably because the character set is 'charset=windows-1252' which is a Microsoft creation. It's not known to work all that well in other browsers. The line is right after the opening <html> tag:

Code:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
I'd suggest trying something a little more universal. Possibly UTF-8, or a Unicode option.

I can see your page fine... using Firefox (which I prefer) but not with Safari. Safari has several issues with web development (including images not coming out as clear). Let me do a little looking around and I'll see what I can come up with. You might want to try the Frontpage forums... I think Thyamine is right though.

Actually Safari is quite standard's compliant, it is the only browser besides Opera to pass the W3C's ACID 2 test.

The problem is that Internet Explorer 6 (the current most common browser) is anything but, so most websites are designed to be "faulty" in order to show up correctly in IE.

I haven't looked at the page itself... but the screenshot image posted above is a picture that has been floating around the web/emails for a lot lately... It's a picture of a pitbull that attacked a porcupine.

Agreed. I tried IE7 the other day and showed a friend. Acid 2 looks just as bad on IE7 as it did on 6.
