Thanks Pat - it's always the really "simple" things that I miss. I changed
that and it solved the problem with 2 of my pages and with the other
ones(the tables) it removed ALL the formatting! To save me pulling even more
of my hair out, I have just put an internal style sheet in the pages that I
had the problems with and that seems to be working.

Yes, I had read that about Netscape - they just like to make it complicated
for folk like me who are eaily confused <g>
Anyway, my site now appears to be working - I have just kept it as simple as
possible. It takes me quite a while to master anything the least bit
"technical" - I get there evetually but just by learning a wee bit at a
time and not trying to grasp too much at once.
