Review of unfinished FW Website

Hello,
I would appreciate comments about the display in Windows+IE7 and MacOS 10.5+Safari for the following unfinished website (now inserting a dbase) = http://www.guyenne-immobilier.co.uk/

I have applied styles which show in FW preview, but on the Internet I see plain text in Mac Safari v 3.1.2

I use Browsercam to compare with Windows + IE7 and that looks as it should (ie styled) thank heavens - my clients are all PC users.

Previous posts have been invaluable and appreciated.

Regards
Nick

I thought maybe my old Powerbook G4 may be the problem. So off to the Apple Centre with the latest kit - and STILL no styles in their Safari. Tried their Firefox - still no styles.
Very disappointing.

What I’m seeing in Safari looks OK. What styles are you saying are not
showing up? Here’s a screenshot of what I see:

Do you have external style sheets turned on? If you alter even one
variable in the style on any page (i.e bold something or make it
larger), this seems to stop working. I’ve had so much trouble with ESS
that I’ve given up.

I’ve uploaded screen shots of what I’m seeing in Firefox & Safari on
iMac G5 to: http://www.webdesignworks.org/screenshots.html

Strangely I was seeing what Paul B was seeing up until today, then it
went like you can see in the screenshots.

Hope this helps.

Hi Nicholas,

Did you make any changes to the css file at all? When I look at it in
Firefox’s firebug I see the Japanese characters that were on your
search page again:

Try going to the File menu and while holding the Control key select
Publish Everything and then re-uploading. Don’t make any changes and
let us know when you’ve done it to see if the same thing is happening.
If so then send your Freeway file to support(at)softpress.com and I
will take a look.

Nick,
Is there any specific reason why you are using the UTF-16 in stead of the UTF-8 character set in your html documents?

Potsy First.
Thanks for the sitemap suggestion. I’d agree with you and do it normally BUT…
The dbase is designed for search engines and produces ONE EXTRA PAGE especially for search engines = with all (say 400) properties on it especially for search engines. They visit and index all AND follow the links from each to the detail pages per property. That, too, gets indexed.
Most of the site is waffle (er, sorry, background information) - it is the property data that we want and get on Internet.

To PAUL B.
Thanks for the screenshot. That is what is supposed to be.
The gap above the top text has a slideshow - which has (today) just stopped working. The screenshots really do help - and I notice the URL to view the jpg file.
Thanks

Just so people know what to look out for Nick sent his file in and the
problem was as maccie had thought, the wrong encoding had been applied
to the pages. In general it’s best to leave the encoding on Auto and
let Freeway decide on the best one to use.

Cheers,

Joe
