    Not to point out the obvious but you might want to fix this part:

    When did you make? 5 years ago?
    Delete what you got, learn the current state of technology and start over.

    Use CSS for presentation. Use HTML for describing the content. Stop using the presentational tags that are removed from Strict:
    • dir
    • menu
    • center
    • isindex
    • applet
    • font
    • basefont
    • s
    • strike
    • u
    • iframe
    • noframes
    Try to avoid using the deprecated presentational tags:
    • sub
    • sup
    • big
    • small
    • tt
    • i
    • b
    Use tables for tabular data only. Use tags for what they are intended for (this includes avoiding overuse of div and span as well). Validate your pages. Never use a tag because of it's default presentation, use it because it's the appropriate tag for the situation. Do as little with JavaScript as possible, and never rely on JavaScript for critical functionality - let JavaScript be an additional user service instead of being necessary. And code for the standards compliant browsers first, then correct for iew's and iem's quirks, instead of the other way around. Test your JavaScripts in moz, op7 and ie5.0w, ie5.5w, ie6w. Test your style in the same browsers, and preferably in saf and ie5m too, if you have a mac to test it on.

    What to do:
    Step 1: Delete everything you got (save content in a text file)
    Step 2: Learn the current state of technology (HTML 4.01 Strict - XHTML 1.0 Strict - XHTML 1.1, CSS2, Accessibility guidlines)
    Step 3: Start over.

    Your request for more specifics is reasonable. I suggest that you turn ON the display of Javascript errors in IE and then visit your page. You get two javascript errors as the page loads, not a good thing, it's possible your hosting service may be the source of those errors so you may want to contact them if you find your code is all ok.

    Before I go beyond that, you should know that what you've written is functional and usable by the vast majority of users on the web and much of the content on the web right now suffers from the same problems. You aren't alone and the comments that follow aren't personal, feel free to challenge any suggestions for the "why should I do that?". The purpose of the comments are to help you learn.

    Your page uses lots of deprecated (that's a funny word for obsolete) tags and constructs. Back when HTML was a new concept there was very little you could do in a web page to control the look of the page. As new versions of HTML were developed a number of tags and properties for tags were added to give the developer control over the look of the page. The table tag was also found to be very useful for organizing the page and was quickly adopted by developers everywhere.

    The problem with the proliferation of tags and properties is that web pages became so complex the actual content for the page is almost always overwhelmed by the code for the presentation of the content.

    The answer to that problem was to reduce HTML back to it's roots as a carrier of content, using tags that give meaning to the content and separating out the presentational information into an entirely new language. The result of that was the "deprecation" of the presentation HTML code and properties plus the creation of a presentational language known as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

    Initially, CSS simply didn't live up to it's billing so even though the CSS specification was already in place during the building of nearly everything that's on the web today it was all still done the same as before because the browsers in use simply didn't handle CSS well enough.

    With the current browsers though it's now possible to perform the separation of content from presentation and those of us who've "seen the light" are trying to explain the benefits to the rest of the world.

    There are several additional threads in this forum which explain much more about this topic, if you're interested let us know and we'll link you up to them .
    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.

    Heres the good news, the script errors are from the High Speed Train Webring code, however, as much as I would like to delete because of this, I will lose most of the people coming to my site.
