Thank you for your reply. The one true layout is really a beautiful
solution and I realize a lot of work was put into it. I can see how the
anchor was overlooked. I showed you a scaled down page but I actually
already built about 10 real pages before noticing. Regardless of the anchor
fix, I think there are too many mac users that still use IE 5 (I know many
that do) so I will find a solution that will work there also. I should find
a web stat page that shows what what browsers are being used but I've heard
that they are unreliable.
I read in another post (answering someone else's question) a recommendaton
of Skidoo http://webhost.bridgew.edu/etribou/layouts/skidoo_too/index.html
I'll give that a try.
