HTML Problem

Is it just me, or are other people having trouble reading Glenn's latest column in The Guardian?

In Mozilla, the column text doesn't show up, and in IE, the page starts to come up, and then redirects itself to the same URL, but gives a "page cannot be displayed" message.


It seems to work fine on my laptop machine, but not on my desktop.

It seems to work fine for me in Firefox (v1.0 Preview Release)

Update: The page also looks fine in both IE and Opera.

It's just you.

Seriously, though, you might try disabling JavaScript. The page has more script shit on it than actual content, sigh.

I tried that, but got the same result. And I couldn't comment any longer, so I reenabled it.

Looks fine on my firefox 1.0 Or as some of my customers call it.... Foxfires

Although judging from the look on Glenn's face (next to the article) I'd imagine he thinks something is wrong too.

I'm using Mozilla, no problems, except like Hefty said, Glenn looks a little stressed.

Ooookay, well my last suggestion is to load the page and then View Source. Somewhere in the HTML/JS gobbledegook you'll find Glenn's actual text. That is, so long as you're having a problem with the browser interpreting the HTML/JS, and not having a problem fetching the page. But since others can fetch the page, and you can on your laptop, I suspect this. Anyway, you can load the crap into your favorite text editor, chop out everything except Glenn's actual text, and the HTML and BODY tags, and reload in your browser.

Not surprised that this happens, either. Any visit to the community of Web programmers and you routinely hear anguished cries about nonstandard crock Web programming.

Remember the days when the Web was supposed to relieve the problems of incompatability between publisher's and reader's software? Oh well.

I read it just fine using Mozilla.
