With some trepidation, I make my first post here.
Quick background: I developed a Website for a charity, starting in 1995,
and it has grown over the years. Now it is well past due for a major
update. Of course I want it to be a standards-compliant design. I've
only gone "live" with two pages out of the hundreds: <http://xps.org/>
and <http://xps.org/kudos.htm>. I stopped at this point because I wanted
to settle on a three-column style that would work on all browsers down
to Netscape 4.7. Since doing the above two pages, I've made changes to
accomplish another objective: move the main content to the top of the
html. This variation is at <http://xps.org/test3.htm>. CSS is:
<http://xps.org/test_ns47.css> and <http://xps.org/test_modern.css>
I've developed and tested using Firefox, and tested with IE4, 5, and 6,
as well as Opera.
I would appreciate a check from Mac users. Accessibility by all users on
all platforms is very important to us.
However, my biggest problem at the moment is that these pages test OK
LOCALLY using Netscape 4.7 -- but I cannot get NS 4.7 to recognize the
linked style sheet when on the server! I created
<http://xps.org/test4.htm> with the CSS embedded, and it works (well
enough). With test3,htm, all I get is the default HTML displayed.
Yes, I've searched and found the reported NS 4.x bugs. That's why I put
the style sheet in the root. Is there something I missed? The server is
FreeBSD-based. Should I be contacting my hosting company? All pointers
