Talk:Websites look wrong

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

If your website looks wrong, this is not the place to post your problems. Try the MozillaZine Forums instead.

We could simplify this a great deal by simply posting a link to Images or animations don't load

That doesn't cover everything this article covers. I personally think this article is trying to do too much - there's a million things that a website could do to "look wrong". I think we're better served by just listing out other, more specific articles like
etc. --Np 15:46, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
I should have said, this can be simplified by removing the image problems and replacing them with a link to Images or animations don't load

The "No Style" solution is covered in Website colors are wrong and Zone Alarm Pro and eTrust will give an error ("Object has been blocked") if they're messing stuff up, and that's covered in Error loading some websites. Alice, can you explain how I'm wrong in saying those two solutions are already covered?--Np 02:50, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

The page style solution is not just for wrong colors, it's for other page display problems...<snip> {on the ZoneAlarm "mobile code" reference}... on second thought, anyone who has disabled JavaScript or embedded objects (Java/ActiveX option) in their ZoneAlarmPro mobile code controls most likely has also disabled "Mime-type integrated objects" (downloads initiated by a click on a link) so would be receiving the "Object has been blocked" error. I took out the reference to Zone Alarm and added some more information on the "No Style" solution Alice Wyman 01:11, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

I need some minus signs on one web page. When I look at the source .html file with any text editor, I see the minus signs there. But some of the minus signs are completely invisible in Mozilla (even in page preview). Today I finally figured out the problem. Somehow someone had typed "soft hyphens" (0xAD) into that file. After I deleted the soft hyphens and re-typed them with the normal minus key (0x2D), now everything looks fine in Mozilla. I hope this little note saves someone else from pulling their hair out at the same "invisible minus sign problem". --DavidCary 03:39, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
