Crap, I messed up the editor, now I can't highlight what "I think" needs to be fixed. HERE is what it looks like working. The full code is in the post below. What I highlighted is what I fixed. I also used the full link for the website instead of the shortcut. The ( that was in green was not in your coding. That could have been the sole reason that it didn't work. But, as I always say... I'm no Mottie, so I could be totally wrong.

There is something else preventing it from loading in FireFox.. it has to be something in my header or my ccs.  I can view the link you posted above with no issues in both IE and Firefox.

Well... So far this is what i found... when I add the

#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_PageContainer { display:none; }

line to the stylesheet to turn off the banner, I am now getting a blank page in both IE and firefox.

I have tried the old code as well removing that line.. and once removed i no longer get a blank page, but It does not look right either.

Fixed it...

Changed

#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_PageContainer { display:none; }

to

#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_PageContainer {}

And now it works fine in both browsers.

Actually, the #ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_PageContainer { display:none; } hides the header, tab bar and all three columns of the page... hmmm I thought I turned that back on. I turned it off because it was flashing the default style before switching over... it's added back now.

Are you asking what font I used? If so, it's called Helena.

If a technotard like me can follow the directions and do it, anyone can!

Just remember before you enter the coding to click the little <> image that makes the content box switch to html. It took me like 20 minutes to figure out that I needed to do that. *blush* However...

Voila!

Just...um...don't look at the rest yet *coughs*

Very nice Lanai!

I updated the first post with a reminder to add the code in HTML mode ().

Thanks!
