    I created a web page for clients at the beginning of the summer. These clients use Macs. There were times when alignment was different (I work on a PC), but that got adjusted.

    Now, there is a problem with a link to email. Would you please let me know why the code works on my PC and not on their Macs?

    Here is the "problem" page: http://www.certifiedcelebrants.com/pages/contactus.htm

    The problem is the link underneath each picture that shows each person's email address. On my PC, when I click on ithe email link, my Eudora email software opens. I used this code:
    HTML Code:
    <a id="email" href="<A href="mailto:elorish@comcast.net">elorish@comcast.net</a">
    mailto:elorish@comcast.net">elorish@comcast.net</a>
    I "fix" the link (or check it), it works on my computer, and then I hear from the clients that it still doesn't work on their Macs.

    HTML Code:
    <a HREF="mailto:elorish@comcast.net" id="email">elorish@comcast.net</A>
    Your code from your site:

    HTML Code:
    <a id="email" href="mailto:elorish@comcast.net">elorish@comcast.net</a>
    looks right, but you may want to have the end users clear their cache.

    Your code is just fine...except you have two items with the same ID ("email") which isn't allowed. An ID must be unique on a page.

    Eudora is retarded if changing the IDs to classes still doesn't fix the problem. It's a freaking mailto:, which has been around almost since the birth of HTML hyperlinks.

    For fun's sake, try putting the href before the id. It's possible that if the browser is old enough it may not be recognizing the id attribute, and it's equally possible that if it doesn't recognize the attribute, it discards future ones. Though both are extremely unlikely. Still, it's worth a shot.

    Did you get it fixed? If so, which change fixed it?
