Website Help / Will not work in IE works in Firefox

Hello, all -

I am making a website for a group I am involved in. I designed it with
Dreamweaver, and tested it in Firefox. Unfortunately, though, I
discovered upon showing other people that it does not appear in IE.

The website address, temporarily, is:

www.umit.maine.edu/~derek.mitchell/index.htm

Please let me know what might fix this. I've been learning as I go,
and cannot figure this one out.

Thank you,
Derek

Please learn not to multipost. See (at least one response in) c.i.w.a.h.

Hi, tried it in firefox and it look good. I noticed in the URL address
box there was a tilda, I think that could be your problem. You might
have to define that inside the <body> tag.

This is true. I think the Op should siriously consider the benifits of
proper use of CSS and HTML and drop the nested table layout as the
site does not even really need all those tables anyway.

That's absurd.

Tildes - note the spelling - are perfectly valid and widely used in URLs, for
the same reason they're used in paths appearing elsewhere, to indicate a user
name. The above system is configured to allow each user his own htdocs/ dir,
and the URL above will be served from Derek's account on that server.

What's more, what kind of (il)logic leads you to the idea that a URL can cause
layout problems? A broken URL wouldn't load at all.

That said, I'm not even sure what layout issues we're talking about here - it
looks pretty much the same to me, with IE6, IE7, Safari, and FF.

Verily.

You see body text in the white space of

To be honest, I'm not certain what you're asking. Here's what I see with IE6:

Ah. You lucky dog. Here's what *I* see:
<http://mypage.bluewin.ch/jlh/UMaineSG.jpg>

The OP has changed a few things since I responded but my IE6 (and, I
presume, his as well) still shows a gaping hole where the body text
should be. Apparently it's not because of validation errors or his JS
marquee, both since removed...

Okay here with IE6/XPsp2 (other than that banner image never
completing). It's also slow, but college kids have broadband.
