The faq link (http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/faq.jsp) displays html in my browser. I am running netscape. Thanks.

It looks fine from here - has the problem been fixed? Or do people still see it? (Be sure to hit "refresh" first.) If you see HTML, what's it say? (Just include a few lines, and insert space after each < so we can see it...)

I tried to see it with NN4.04 and this is how it looks like:

Just checked with IE5. It looks fine - has it been fixed?

It is still displaying html. I have tried re-freshing. I am using Netscape.
It does display a little bit of web page for only an instance. I can see the moose's head and some paragraphed text with an jump on the word "here". It is too quick to read or to try and hit the html jump.
I only mention this incase it gives an indication of where in the html there might be a problem for Nescape browsers.

I am very confident that the HTML is broken, almost certainly broken headers, might be missing carriage returns at the start.
IE is very slack at parsing HTML and will display any old rubbish . For instance if you have a link to a css that does not exist, IE will just render and not warn you that the css is missing, Netscape will fall over with a dramatic message, exotic but good for the web designer to know the html is broken.
I expect a virtual beer if I'm right (and virtual custard pie if I'm wrong).

Yup - here is the offending section:
<pre> <P>
<EM>
<FONT color="#804000">
Take a look to here to find the the answers to the most popular
<BR>
questions about the Big Moose Saloon
<BR>
here at javaranch.
</EM>



</pre>
On inspection, the </FONT> tag occurs two lines later than it should. Marcus, consider yourself virtually beered. (We will save the virtual custard for another occasion.)
Gotta run to work now - hopefully some other sheriff or bartender can fix this?

Close,
The real problem is the ubb directory was moved from under the html directory which is the JSP root. I put the contents back into faq.html
IE trys to render the JSP as html, NS renders it as text!
Proof
Faq jsp not under html directory
Faq jsp under html directory
