I am new to this forum, so I hope am putting this in the correct section. I am experiencing a rendering problem with MACs using IE. When a MAC user goes to www.ten31productions.com they get nothing just a blank page. I'm not sure how to correct this problem and I do need MAC users to see this site. Any ideas??
this is a relatively new mac about 9months old using IE 5.0.

On a Mac here.
You're right. it doesn't work in Mac/IE but it does work in Mac/Moz1.1.
IE5.0+ for Macs is very compliant (not like Win/IE) and I noticed in your code that you hadn't put inverted commas (" ") around some of the attributes in the body (height, width etc).
I suggest trying this for a start.
There's something else as well… but I just can't figure it at the moment. Will look more closely when I've got some time.
BTW. jkd will probably catch this straight away:)
Meerkat - thanks for the input.
I will go into my css portion - a code it properly ---
thanks I would love anymore ideas & input.
I validated my code w3c (html & css), it passed accept for the alt elements - because I don't have them.

syntax-highlighting text-editors help for this kind of thing
I removed any quotes I had, except around the fonts because of the spaces in the fnt name.
I did the escaping slash.
But unfortunately - it's still blank on the MAC
Please keep the comments & ideas coming

Brothercake is right.

Brothercake and MCookie are right…
Have just tested it and if you put in the
at the end of your JS as suggested it works fine in IE
I fixed the comment thing---- I can't believe how long I looked at that & did not see it --- thanks
I am now running into some positional issues. Where Can I find references to MAC/css stuff?
By the way --- All of you are great -- I have been on other forums, that people don't respond or they are rude, if they bother to respond at all!!
thanks a bunch
