Hi,

Could someone please take a look at http://www.sipedia.co.uk/hifi/flactastic.php in FF, it appears to work fine in safari, and possibly tell me why my list goes wrong about half way down? You can't miss it, hence the vague description!

Thanks very much

Simon

Hello swisspolo,
Mr.Bubble is right, the validator finds the mistakes in your ul. See the suggestion about frequent validating in my sig below.

Anyway, it looks like you should be using a dl there anyway. Definition List (http://www.highdots.com/css-editor/html_tutorial/lists/dl.html)

Try this:
<dl>
<dt>PC's</dt>
<dd>A good sound card is required: A sandblaster X Fi card</dd>
<dd>PC's can be loud and impair general ddstening</dd>
<dd>Windows can be &quot;clunky&quot; when deaddng with audio content in general</dd>
<dd>Flac is well supported</dd>
<dt>Mac</dt>
<dd>Only option is build in sound cards (unless using Power PC)</dd>
<dd>An external DAC is a good option as will be better that mac DAC</dd>
<dd>Very easy to convert tracks</dd>
<dd>Mac generally deals with audio better than a PC</dd>
<dd>Silent!</dd>
<dd>Mac Mini's are a great option here</dd>
<dd>iTunes doesn't support flac yet</dd>
</dl>
