I have a hobby website which I made using Word. I have two issues I am trying to figure out. One is hiding the table lines when it is viewed in Firefox. They are invisible when viewing in IE. The other is the top portion of 3 out of 4 photos are blacked out when viewed in Firefox and not in IE.

This line is causing the problem:
<table class="MsoTableGrid" style="border: medium none ; width: 744.55pt; border-collapse: collapse;" width="993" border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

The border is being defined twice. First, it is being given a style of 'medium none', and then given a size of 1 in the HTML border parameter. IE is using the style declaration, and Firefox is using the HTML parameter. Take out border="1", and the lines will go away.

As far as the images issue, they all load for me in Firefox, but the last image did not load for me in IE. The code is such a gosh-awful mess that I can't even begin to imagine what might be causing the problem. For instance, I can't understand why a simple page like that would need to install an Activex control. I am assuming that since I didn't allow the control to be installed, the image was not able to display.

EDIT: It just dawned on me what you did. Using Word as a text editor is one thing; creating a document in Word and having Word try to convert it to a web page is sloppy. The page does not even validate correctly, there is no document type declaration, and there is a ton of erroneous garbage left in the source code which makes it very difficult to troubleshoot.

groovicus,
All the images load in Firefox, but the top portion of the photo is black as if the photo is smaller than the canvas size.

Thanks for taking a look. Maybe it is time to look at something else to do my webpage. I will try your suggestion for the table lines.
Thanks again for your patience and help.
