W3C Core Styles

P: 3
Hello, I'm rather lost in all this language. I thought I had a web site until I downloaded Firefox, and it all went haywire. Every page (and there are lots) is a total meaningless mess on Firefox.

I've used this "The W3C Core Styles offer authors an easy way to start using style sheets without becoming designers. By adding a link in the head of your documents, a CSS browser will fetch the style sheet of your choice from W3C's server when it encounters your document. A non-CSS browser will display the HTML document like it always did."

It works very well on Safari, and I understood it was fine on Internet Explorer. Do I need to forget about this method now? It seemed such a beautiful idea.

The core style should work just fine but without seeing any of your code it's impossible to say what went wrong for you. Since you say it works in IE but not Firefox then this definitely points to a problem in your code. The reason is that IE is old, buggy and a poor performer with the standards while FF is a modern standards compliant browser.

Can you post a link or give the complete code here?

Thank you for your help. I take it you mean a link to my site?

It appears your images are being sent as text/html instead of as an image. I've never seen this before so I don't know what is really going on. The source looks all spaced out, even in IE, and some of the link information doesn't make sense or changes.

Is this generated by a script? Perhaps you need to check a server setting somewhere?

I looked at the source of this page, and it's spaced out even more than mine.
I thought that made it easier to edit.
Mine isn't generated by a script other than the W3C core style. I wrote the html myself. I'm a beginner. It works perfectly on Safari, all the links, images and everything.
There are lots of thumbnails on the main pages and they link to separate pages with a larger image and more text, for example:
