    I just launched a site and it works and looks fine on ie for windows, and netscape and mozilla for mac, but it has issues with ie for mac. Specifically, I have two problems regarding ie 5.1 on mac os 9.2.2...

    1) the main content table gets stretched to the right on ie for mac- creating unused white space that is not supposed to be there. http://www.industriousbird.com/words.html

    2. I can't get these quicktime movies to work on ie for mac.
    http://www.industriousbird.com/woastudio_piper.html (This page is actually a pop up window that is accessed from the first sample image on this page.. http://www.industriousbird.com/soundtracks.html)

    Any help with these issues would be greatly appreciated. I'm stumped!

    I happen to be using IE 5.2.2 on my iBook at the moment so I can't compare what the first point should look like. But re: the QT movie, when I enter the URL in the browser manually it gives a 404 error; are you sure the movie is actually there (/piper3.mov) in the first place?

    hi filburt 1,

    thanks a lot for checking it out. I am sure that the piper.mov file is there because it seems to work for everyone except those on ie for mac. I am using ie on a win98 OS and everything works...

    Whiteness problem: the only thing I can suggest is to simplify the table layout (I'm working on that now)
    QT issue: still checking into...

    I redid the table (it was quick and dirty DW so some of the CSS you had might have been lost):
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    	<title>Bird's Words</title>
    <SCRIPT>if(document.layers){document.write('<' + 'link rel="STYLESHEET" type="text/css" href="css/industrious_mac.css">');}else if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf('mac')>-1){document.write('<' + 'link rel="STYLESHEET" type="text/css" href="css/industrious_mac.css">');}else{document.write('<' + 'link rel="STYLESHEET" type="text/css" href="css/industrious_bird.css">');}</SCRIPT>
    <script>
    if(document.layers) {
    	alert ("This site is best viewed in Internet Explorer or Netscape 6.2 and above");
    }
    </script>
    </head>

        </tr>
      </table>
    </body>
    </html>
    Does that work any better?
