Default Safari problem

Attention Mac users,

Could someone take a look at http://www.agla.org/joinagla.html and let me know what you see? (Not sure of the Safari version, but can try to find out.)

A user reported the page only displays as text. I haven't confirmed if any of the other pages work or have the same problem, but he reported that Firefox for Mac worked fine. I have no clue how to troubleshoot something like this.

I did find a site that shows screen shots using iCapture uses OS X 10.4.8 and Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) (http://www.danvine.com/icapture/ and that looks fine to me.

Help.

Works fine in Safari 2.0.4 (as that screen shot indicates); close to identical, in fact, to the Firefox 2.0.0.1 view I see.

Wonder if this person has images turned off in Safari.

I would be surprised if the Safari version had anything to do with it — it is based on Gecko and was designed from the start to be compliant.

That’s interesting. There seem to be no ads at all, only two images.

I thought I had replied already, but mustn't have hit Submit.

No, there are no ads. Couple images. It's mostly CSS. The form is a table. Not all that fancy, other than it's mostly CSS layout and XHTML Strict.

Oddly enough, it worked for the user today.

He couldn't get PayPal to work with the form,though. But I was able to so the problem must be on his end or with PayPal. It's so odd, I'd suspect he had a virus if it wasn't a Mac.

I reported that to the user, but haven't gotten a reply from him yet. Thanks for that interesting tidbit.

I think it's based on KHTML rather than Gecko. KHTML is the basis of Konqueror the KDE browser on Linux. It's more compliant than Gecko, allegedly!

Of course you are right! I knew that.

Sigh.
