So many browsers, so little time....

I need your help. I ran into a problem that has me flumoxed.

This page loads fine in Netscape and IE, but Safari hangs and refuses to load it.

I found that by removing one line from my CSS I can get it to work, but I want that line in there (font-variant:small-caps and the curious thing is that I use font-variant in other pages that work fine in Safari.

If you have a minute, would you try to access the page with whatever browsers you use and let me know how it works.

I appologise for the state of the page - I was in the middle of making it pretty when I came across this glitch.

Also if anyone has any insight into what the problem might be, let me know.

Take care, Margaret

Margaret,

When I tried to access the link, I received the message "This page cannot be displayed". I'm using IE 6.0. Since I know absolutely nothing about this stuff, that's all I can tell you.

That tells me a lot Ed. At least now I know it's more than just Safari and that I need to be worried about it.

Could I ask you to try this page

I use the same code in both pages, but the one I'm linking here works fine where the other one won't load.

Thanks, Ed, I appreciate the help,

Margaret

Thanks BK, I had the first link typed wrong (I fixed it now)

I'm using IE5.2 and both pages load in IE but not Safari.

I know what line in the CSS is causing the problem, so I guess I'll just have to leave it out.

Take care, Margaret

Both links also work in Opera 7.02 and Netscape 7 (on WinXP).

Doesn't work with netscape 6 for mac (it couldn't find the server, it said). Both pages work fine with Opera 5.

update - the first link now works with IE5.1 for some reason (kept dying before...odd) Attached pic is from Opera screen.

also (somebody smack me if I'm wrong here!) I THINK that if you specify a font and the person calling your site doesn't have that font installed that they end up using the default (whatever that may be) and that could be worse than setting it up with a default (which everyone could see) to begin with. Most use ariel or helvetica for non-serif, and times for serif - boring but safe.

This blurb from Dreamweaver...

Font variant - Determines whether the element should be rendered in all uppercase letters in such a way that lowercase letters of the source code are rendered in smaller uppercase letters. If a font family contains a small caps variant, the browser should use it automatically. More likely, however, the browser calculates a smaller size for the uppercase letters that take the place of source code lowercase letters. In practice, Internet Explorer 4 renders the entire source code content as uppercase letters of the same size as the parent element's font, regardless of the case of the source code.

CSS Syntax
font-variant: fontVariant

Value
Any of the following constant values: normal | small-caps.

Initial Value
normal

Example
EM_{font-variant:_small-caps}

I'm using Opera 7.03 (best version of Opera so far IMO - finally the RP menu works completely without problems) and both of the pages are displaying just fine.
