    Code is hiding my text

    Can you all tell me why this code will cause the beginning words "Featured Brand Names:" to not show up in the html box? If I highlight that area of text, I can see its there, but otherwise its not showing.

    <fieldset style="WIDTH: 964px; HEIGHT: 48px"><font style="font-size: 12px;"><font style="font-size: 11px;"><u><span style="color: black;"><font color="#c00000"><b><a href="/Manufacturer.aspx">Featured Brand Names:</a></b></font>&nbsp; </span><font style="font-size: 11px;" color="#c00000"><b><a href="http://www.abc.com/Manufacturers/3M.aspx"><font style="font-size: 11px;" color="#c00000">3M<span>

    you did not close the span properly after 3M and there is no closing </a> for your link ( I think this is the problem, but I also think you are nto showing enough of the html for a proper diagnosis)
    . Also the font element is deprecated. and Inline styling is very very difficult to maintain. I would advise you learn about using styelsheets.
