    Hi again.

    I don't know if I have permisison to reply,(to the other forum, concerning Home.html and index.html); so I will restate the problem here.

    I initially had to learn everything you told the seakayaking fella in the other post.

    I actually ended up removing everything from the host, after figuring out that there were mistakes.Turns out that with the new intel macs; there is a default SITES folder that IWEB tries to publish to, unless you create a new folder. I just hate it when they don't tell you these

    Anyway, as I said, I just started over from scratch, creating a folder, and uploading from there.

    It worked just like you said; there's a top file called index.html; and a SITES folder, with all else in it. The only way I could get it to launch, (and so, be viewable), was to tell FETCH to upload it, exactly the same.

    So far, so good. When I use FETCH 5.2's nifty "web-view" option, it all looks exactly right.

    Unfortunately, when Windows users (and boy, are there a lot of them), try to view it, things take a little turn for the worse.......

    Most of my special characters (diamonds, arrows, boxes, etc.) under my pictures, disappear, and one of my pages gets cut off at the bottom.

    How do I fix this? Can I do so, without programming? Or should I take the whole mess to an IT guy?

    Could you please tell us the address of the webpage with the problems? We'll take a look at it (on both Mac and Windows) and see if we can give some advice about the problem.

    Yes, the site is:

    the site loads as:;; etc.etc.

    I think you mentioned in the other post that this is because of the way that IWEB publishes it?

    I am wondering if I should delete the home.html file in the SITES folder, (at the host level) and then move the whole thing up one directory, (removing the SITES subdirectory, altogether) if this will fix the problem?

    If I did this; then everything would be in top directory, sitting beside the index.html, rather then in a separate subfolder called SITES. I wasn't sure if this would cause a conflict, or not. I know I tried it before (without deleting the home.html file, in the SITES subdirectory), and it did cause a conflict, which is when I started over, completely.
