We have a page with javascript on our website, http://www.victorrossi.com/home.htm , that does not work on either Chrome or Safari although it seems to work fine in Internet Explorer and Firefox. What can be done to allow the "animated jpeg" created by the javascript to work on Chrome and Safari ? Many people we work with tend to use MACs with Safari and they mention there is blank space where the javascript "animated jpeg" should be.

I have done an extensive search on the internet but with no success. Any solutions ? Is there a "browser detect" redirect to an alternate file that we can use. We would like to re-direct Chrome & Safari users to an alternate page with an animated gif instead and although the animated gif doesn't look as great at the javascript "animated jpeg"

Here is the page below: (the area in question is the JAVASCRIPT portion)
<head><title>Victor Rossi</title>

Your page is not properly formed. You have an opening '<body>' tag, and two closing tags for starters, and it just gets worse from there. That is why it doesn't work, and by all rights, it shouldn't work in any browser. Try using the validation service at W3C:

I agree, the code is a MESS ! It somehow renders ok in IE and Firefox but not Chrome or Safari. I had read that javascripts do not always function properly on Chrome and Safari but it is most likely bad coding like you said.

Thanks for the validation service link. I will look into it :thumbsup:
