    Hi everybody,
    I need help troubleshooting an Internet Explorer text link problem I am experiencing on my new website (not quite finished yet), I'm scratching my head at this one.

    What I am finding is that random text links are behaving strangely in Explorer 5 for MAC (OS9 and OSX) where the area in which you can click to access the link is extending way below and around certain text links, to the point where this interferes with links embedded in swf files, and makes a big chunk of the body of certain pages into a link. Now obviously, all links have the <a href and </a> html code , so this shouldn't happen.

    I am only experiencing this problem in Explorer 5x for MAC, but I'm not sure yet if Explorer for Windows experiences this also. The site works fine in Netscape (both mac and PC) and Safari, and I have set up the pages so they would be compatible with these different browsers.

    On the homepage, the left sidebar has a swf file with a slideshow link embedded within it - "Featured Loop - 'QX5" - the file is set up so that it is supposed to play the file if you click once, and stop the file if you click again. There is a link above it for the "credits' page, that seems to envelop this swf, so that whenever I click on the swf in Explorer, it sends me to the "credits" pages.

    Another place on the homepage where I have this problem is near the bottom on the "Next Page" link, and also below that on the "credits" link on the bottom menu bar. I'm experiencing this problem on other pages as well, without any discernable pattern. Is this an IE MAC 5 bug? Is there an easy workaround?
    Is there another way to code these links?

    Any help is appreciated.
