Ed:
Let me know the MFG's and I will happily ask for their overstock, discontinued, and refurbed to put on the site!
I know and love your work with steam...

I formally apologize to the fine people of RCM for some of the statements I made in recent post... I am sorry for that.
It is up to me to make the site better, so more people can see it.
Best regards,
Fred

Hi Fred,
Looks good under:
Netscape 7.02/Win2000 IE6 / Win2000 IE5/Win98SE
Mozilla 0.9.2.1 under Gnome/Redhat 7.2
Konqueror 3.0.0.12 under KDE 3.0.0.10 / Redhat Linux 7.3 Konqueror 2.2.1 under KDE 2.2-11 / Redhat 7.2
Displays blank page under Netscape 4.7 / Win98SE. Source view shows the code is there OK, but just a blank page. Same behavior with Netscape 4.78 under Gnome/Redhat 7.2
Cheers, Stan

hi fred,neat site. it loads pretty fast and had no probs with my browser (I use Netscape). Contact Us page left images not loading though.
As a suggestion maybe you could add some sort of category column or sorting to the product list.
Rgds, Sam

Hey Mike:
Thanks for the follow-up... Actually I have not done a couple of pages yet so I would be surprised to see graphics on them... I was testing the concept first, content later... Mostly making sure the site was at least visible...

Yes your right about the verbiage... I really can not sell 200% lower than list... I can sell for 10-20% of list... Just really it means I can buy some items for below mfg cost and offer them to the public for just over that...

All the items have a full description page with just that stuff... You need to click on the item or description...
Thanks for the feedback!
Freddie

    [ ... ]

    I just went through all of the tools pages except the sign in part using Mozilla v1.5 on a Sun workstation, and had no problems. (Well ... once it hung, trying to get from "Gauge Stands" to "Shop Tools" -- but a retry worked so it might have been momentary communications problems.
    Hmm ... just went to "About Us", and the three bars below "Shop Tools" on the left appear to be active links, but are blank.
    Looking at the page source, I find the following where that should be defined.
=====================================================================src="file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/Desktop/New%20Stuff/SurplusGage_com_files/policies.gif" ====================================================================and that file: part will not work from a remote site, let alone the reference to "C|" (which I presume to be equivalent to "C:", or a typo.) It would probably look normal on your system, but not on any remote one.
All three of them have the same problem -- the one which I quoted was the middle of the three, for what it may be worth.
    "Policies" has the same problem.
    Looking at the same area on one of the tools pages -- ("Shop Tools", I find this instead, which *does* work.
=====================================================================src="graphics/00000001/policies.gif" width="120" height="21" ====================================================================    The "Contact Us" page has a whole slew of bars with broken-image icons at the upper left. But that may be because I have most JavaScript functions disabled, and there is JavaScript on that page.
    I hope that this is some help. I would have done private e-mail, but the system which is running the newsreader at the moment is *by design* out of touch with the outside world -- it just talks to my local news server. So, if I had tried to answer via e-mail, it would have sat in the queue for a week and then bounced back to my inbox. :-)
    Good Luck,         DoN.
P.S.    Some of that looks very tempting. What is the difference     between the "Anvil Mike" and a thread mike -- other than the     choice of anvils?

Thanks for the great feedback DoN:
Yes, the site is far from done, and was looking for some preliminary feedback... Ie; formatting etc...
I have to track down a few bugs and finish a few pages - graphics need to be polished...
I still won't have a merchant account for a few weeks, so I am putting August 15th or so as a "go live" date...
Anvil mic & thread mics are similar, but you have different pitch anvils on a thread mic... The multi-anvil mic has different styles such a disc, sphere etc... Lets you create different style mics from one frame...
Best,
Fred

Hey DoN:
All seems to be working good now, with most browsers and such. Including NN 4.7+, Mozilla, Opera and IE...
OBTW: Took all the Javascript off the pages per your suggestion... They are small enough to load pretty quickly without the need for any extra overhead... Alt tags are coming on everything, and a text menu at the bottom for text based browsers (also a quick way to get to the top)...
Company just gave me about 70 new overstock items to put up, so there will be a pretty nice selection when we go live on Aug 15th. I hope to have 150-200 products for the rollout.
Thanks for you help and feedback!
Fred

    Great! JavaScript seems to be creeping into everything, whether it is needed or not, and those who are security conscious will have it disabled.

    Great!
    Glad to help.
    Good Luck,         DoN.

The site works fine with MSNTV. Why are those verniers so expensive? Are they really big?

Fred squeezed out:

=================Feddie. I haven't finished reading this whole thread so I hope this post isn't redundant. A useful tool to determine if it is your code broken or just a broken browser is to validate the site.
http://validator.w3.org/ gives an on-line tool to check web sites against the established standards. So if your site passes the validation you can be pretty sure it isn't you that's short of the mark when someones browser can't negotiate the site properly.
Hope this helps. Ian.

Thor:
I guess the only good html is the one that works?
MX gives you spotty validation, Tiny expounds on everything...
Line by line in notepad...Only way I guess?
Cheers,
