    With IE 8 my links *to go from one page to a different page* on my website do
    not show up however the website works just fine in chrome, firefox and
    earlier versions of IE. Any clues how to fix this?

    IF you need the website it is www.kfoxweatherfox.com. On the left hand side
    should be a whole list of pages to go to such as knowledge, photos etc.

    OK, it does seem to display better in Firefox than in IE8, even compatibility mode
    doesn't help. The page has 100 errors, not the worst I've seen but bad for such a
    simple page. The page has 115 lines just in the head, that would be more than enough
    to display what is on the page. The whole page has 1300 lines.

    With all of the crap in the head element it still does not identify the page editor
    <META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="...">

    Find a real web page authoring program and re-write the page, I don't think that one
    can be fixed. Notepad would be better than what you used (and entirely adequate for
    the complexity of the page).

    Well, for starters, they seem to work OK from here with XP Pro
    SP3 and IE8. There are a total of 13 links in the left menu
    list.

    However, you have apparently written the site using MSO:
    --------
    <html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
    xmlns:eek:="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice"
    xmlns:dt="uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882"
    xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">
    -------
    Using Office to write web sites creates terrible code bloat
    that's entirely unnecesary and makes the site very slow to
    load where something as simple as you have should literally
    "snap" to the screen with the slowest DSL and even be usable
    to 56k users, which is is not; it would take forever to load a
    page with 56k analog connections.
    The "story" MS likes to tell if you call them on it, is
    that it's not intended to write web sites for the internet,
    but for an intranet - that's why it has all that extraneous
    bload in it.

    The site needs to be rewritten and re-uploaded. You might be
    able to accomplish what you need by simply loading it into
    something like N|VU which will remove extraneious code, then
    run Tidy on it; that at least would get around a complete
    rewrite if it worked.

    NVU is free and works well, especially if you aren't good at
    HTML. It's a wysiwyg editor and fully capable of doing a site
    like yours. You can download it from here. I used it when I
    was getting started and it's a great program for the beginner
    or even some experts.

    HTH,
