    AC,
    The problem is not Firebird but this line:

    <p ><u><font size="4"><u>Phone:</u><b> (0118) 959 4242</b></font></p> which
    comes after the Age Concern address line. You have a spurious Underline (U)
    tag openned at the beginning of the line which is never closed. Remove that
    and all should be fine. As an aside, I think that you may well have other
    problems using FrontPage and your coding will certainly be bloated!

    A good piece of freeware to check your coding for errors is CSL HTML
    Validator Lite ( http://www.htmlvalidator.com/lite/ )

    M$ have designed IE in such a way that it will stab at what was intended
    when coding is wrong, other browers tend to be more or less strict about
    coding.

    By the way, I know the area you are writing about as I spent my teenage
    years in Tilhurst and went to Battle School!
