    Question XHTML display problems

    I am using Dreamweaver 8.0 and a template therein. I have viewed this page in Firefox, IE, Google Chrome and Opera, and in all instances, the most recent release. The O/S is WinXP SP3, and I have four separate problems.

    In all four browsers, at the extreme upper left corner of the page a small graphic should appear, but all that shows is Equilateral Triangle (the Alt text). And yes, I have checked the HTML coding every which way from Sunday and it is correct. <td colspan="3" rowspan="2"><img src="http://www.globalexpo.com/images/threesidedtriangle.jpg" alt="Equilateral triangle" width="94" height="108" border="0" /></td>. That image is stored in the correct file on the server.

    In Firefox, immediately above and below the date in the upper left, appear the words "line decor" in small type. Also, below each of the two columns appear an upside down ! and ? (as in Spanish style) and 1/2. So, !?1/2. These characters also appear in IE and Chrome, in the same places. They do not appear anywhere in the coding.

    In IE, beside the left column just under the first sentence of the last paragraph, is a short horizontal line. That line also appears between the two columns at the same location. That line does not appear anywhere in the coding.

    I have spent the past day trying to figure out why that image is not appearing, and why there are abhorrent characters that should not be there. Any and all suggestions will be more than welcome. I am not by any means and expert at creating web pages, but have been doing it for a number of years.

    Sorry, I forgot to post the page. It is at http://www.pyramidcityproject.com

    You're saying that if you click on http://www.globalexpo.com/images/threesidedtriangle.jpg, the triangle image comes up for you? Sure doesn't for me. Neither does your "line decor" image at http://www.globalexpo.com/images/mm_dashed_line.gif

    Image

    No, because globalexpo.com/images is a secure access area on my web server that is not accessible to the public. All images for any of my web pages are filed in that folder. But, the script calls images from there. I have an identical img src in the index page of my other web site www.globalexpo.com for the photo that shows. And, that one works. THAT is what really confuses me.

    I have solved part of the image problem. Out of curiosity I replaced the image with GordonSharpe.jpg which works on my other web site. It appears in the Pyramid web site, so obviously there is something wrong with the image of the triangle. So, now all I need to resolve is those two horizontal lines and the !?1/2 comments.

    Hmm... I can't find either of those images referenced from your globalexpo.com site. Nevertheless, if you're saying the image files are actually there, but the server has some sort of script that's providing security to the /images directory by filtering access requests to the various images, I suspect you'll want to post that code, because there's far more to this than just an <img src...> html line going on.

    Well, that lasted all of a minute and it too has disappeared. I give up.

    OK.

    Looks like in several places in your code, the following appears:
    Code:
            </tr>
          </table>
    	�<br />
    
    	&nbsp;<br />	</td>
    What is actually going on, right before the <br /> in your source? Is this an included file that's being stuck in? If so, have you verified the file type is ANSI, and not some wacky type?

    Only the webmaster (me) has access to the files and folders. Access is username and password controlled. I have been doing this for a number of years now, and have never encountered this problem before. I'm going to see if tech support at LunarPages can help. The img src line is the same one as at www.globalexpo.com and it works fine there. That is what is confusing me, same image folder, same img scr coding, and yet it only works at one of my web sites. There are days when I am sure that computers were invented to cause insanity. {;-)

    <p align="justify">The main building at ground level will contain parks, a golf course, and an atrium several hundred meters in height. Depending on the final design parameters, the building will house 50,000 to 75,000 residences, as well as hotels, theaters, restaurants, a convention center, shopping malls, and offices.</p>

This outer perimeter will consist of approximately 20,000 residential housing units, plus parks and all of the normal amenities associated with a small city.</p>
    <p align="justify">The present estimates are that the architectural and engineering drawings will be ready by 2015, with ground breaking to be in 2016. The main building completion will be in approximately 2025, with the perimeter housing developed as the market permits. The overall economic benefit to the country where this project is developed, is estimated to be in excess of $12 billion. It is not possible at this time to estimate how many jobs will be created. </p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

    <p align="justify">If you feel that you have something to contribute to this project, by all means contact us. </p>
    <p align="justify">This entire project will be based on leasing of the underlying land, as well as all residential and business space. The underlying land leases will be combined into one master lease covering all of the land. The same process will apply to the main building once we move forward. And in furtherance of that process, we are inviting proposals on that subject.</p>
    <p align="justify">We are also building a newsletter mailing list of those who might have an interest in acquiring one of the base leases. There is absolutely no obligation to those who sign up, but we do ask that only those who are serious investors do so. We are still formulating the lease terms and conditions, and as they are firmed up we will be posting that information here. If you wish to be placed on this list, please click Newsletter in the menu. <br />

    <p><span class="subHeader">Important Notice</span></p>
    <p align="justify">A very important point vis-a-vis this project is that we are not the developers. Our job is to take the concept, find all of the players, and bring them together to develop the concept to fruition. We have investment groups who are saying that if we can acquire the land, they will seriously become involved. We have the same situation with architectural and engineering firms, whereby they are interested, and if we can bring the pieces together, they wish to be involved. The list goes on in that regard. So, land, investors, architects, engineers, owners, lease holders all form part of the package. Gradually as we move forward, the professionals will be taking charge, and our job will be done. </p>

    I do not see that anywhere in the coding, either in Dreamweaver or in View Source. 'That' being:

    </tr>
    </table>
    &#239;&#191;&#189;<br />

    &nbsp;<br /> </td>

    I see everything except the &#239;&#191;&#189;. On what line do you see it?

    Well now they are gone, as you say. I don't know what you did to make them go away, but those characters were at line 87 when I copied them above.

    Interesting

    That is very interesting, because I didn't do anything. If they disappeared, they did so on their own. I'm going to ask LunarPages tech support if they have an ideas. It will take them a day to get back to me with an answer, but once I know I'll post if here.

    Meanwhile, I truly appreciated your input. Thank you for that.

    Life does get interesting at times. The Lunarpages forum had only one response, and that was that the triangle .jpg was showing. I checked it this morning with all of my browsers, and sure enough, it shows. Why? I have no idea. I changed nothing and it suddenly decides to appear. Gremlins 1 - Nodgorchavez 0

    Thanks again for your input.

    No problem, glad to help stir the pot a bit and try to diagnose.

    Personally I'd be a bit concerned about the Lunar folks. There is no such thing as "gremlins" of course, so either it's something you changed, or something they changed, or a network failure in between. If you can eliminate something you did, and the network was up..... you get my point.
