    Safari Display Issue - Looks fine offline not online

    Hi folks... first time poster here.

    I've got an odd issue:

    Safari is not displaying two <div> blocks online.

    It looks fine when I'm working on it locally on Safari 5.x, Chrome.

    It looks fine online Chrome, FF (Current), IE7-8-9.

    But Safari is not display two of the blocks when I check the version online. It's loading the images from the blocks (in the Activity window), but not actually displaying them or respecting their place on the page. Clearing my cache has not seemed to help matters.

    The site is static/strict XHTML/CSS and validates accordingly.

    I have no idea how to debug this issue so any insight would be welcomed! I can post code samples if it will help.

    Ok - the "idiot" update.

    The two blocks not displaying... well they had two letters in them at the end of their name: can anyone guess what they were?

    Did you say, "ad"?!

    Yup... the project (a sample site for students with placeholder options where fake ads could go) was being adblocked. Serves me right.

    Hello dialing_wand,
    Good catch! Thanks for posting back with the answer to that one.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    Thanks for this thread! This will certainly come in handy for other coders.
