Netscape cannot see my download links

P: n/a
I have a site

http://www.allaboutpets.org.uk/dogindex1.html

Now on all of the cat doh horse index pages when using netscape
browser ( all versions ) the download links in the left column do not
work.

If you try using PC Explorer ( all versions 4 and above ) the links
work fine.

I have no idea why Netscape cannot see these links.

My guess would relate to the css rules which define the placement of
layers such as;

..indexColumnOne {
position: absolute;
width: 345px;
left: 15px;
top: 140px;
z-index: 1;
visibility: visible;

}
..indexColumnTwo {
position: absolute;
width: 345px;
left: 385px;
top: 140px;
z-index: 2;
visibility: visible;

It is the links in .indexColumnOne that are not focussed.

Can anyone please help me with this one

Many thanks

shows 29 errors with your page's HTML.

This page looks like something out of the 1990s, with a few faltering
steps to move from a table layout to a fixed CSS layout.

I presume you mean "Internet Explorer".

The link target is: <a href="#">

What are you expecting to happen? You have some bizarre Javascript link
thing that refers to a bluestreak.com page. Why not just use:

<a href="/assets/pdfs/dog/dog11.pdf"> for example? This would work in
browsers that don't have JS turned on.

However, I think you're probably right about the dodgy CSS, as the
right-hand two links do work.

In your position, I'd ditch the current code and re-write by hand.
Shouldn't take long. Lose all the absolute positioning and table layout,
make each leaflet into a div, and let them flow rather than restricting
to columns.

Good luck!
