    Firefox and IE not displaying language option correctly.

    I'm just getting started using HTML and CSS and designing web pages. A friend asked me to do some corrections on her website somebody else made some time ago. Using HostGator as my server (also the one the web page uses) I accessed the original HTML file, copied all the content, created a new HTML file in the same location as the original (using a different name though), pasted everything I copied to the new file, changed a few things in the text and a few logos, and I got the exact same page with the changes I wanted –as long as I'm on Safari or Google Chrome everything works perfect. The problem is when I use Firefox or IE, no matter what version of each, the option for language doesn't display correctly –instead of having the English(ON)/Spanish(OFF) option, the spanish doesn't appear.

    The link for the original page is
    http://www.santelmoproductions.com/feedback2.html
    And the one I edited
    http://www.santelmoproductions.com/feedback2.html

    Also I don't know if it has anything to do with this problem, but I added to my page
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
    content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">
    so it's always read in UTF-8 –I was getting weird characters like "â€" otherwise.

    Any idea of what can I do to make the language option appear on all browsers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Both links you provided are the same, and don't show me a Spanish option in either Chrome or FF... Could you possibly have a cache problem, where you're viewing an older version of the site in one browser?

    Sorry about that –you're right Dave, the link for the original website is
    http://santelmoproductions.com/feedback.html
    I don't think I'm viewing an older version when I go to
    http://santelmoproductions.com/feedback2.html
    as the changes I made to the text and logos are there alright.
    I hope you can see what I'm talking about now. Thanks again in advance!

    It looks like your CSS file not encoded in unicode.

    Try changing
    Code:
    a.espa�olON, .espa�olOFF, .inglesON, .inglesOFF {width:52px; height:15px; margin:0px 4px; float:left; display:block;}
    a.espa�olON	{background: url(../images/btnIEspanolON.png) top left no-repeat; cursor:pointer;}
    to say
    Code:
    a.espanolON, .espanolOFF, .inglesON, .inglesOFF {width:52px; height:15px; margin:0px 4px; float:left; display:block;}
    a.espanolON	{background: url(../images/btnIEspanolON.png) top left no-repeat; cursor:pointer;}
    and then the class name in the HTML source.
