Coding mess

I have put together a website for a scuba shop. When I started this I had little or no experience. I have put together a site that people seem to like a lot and I was proud of the work I did with little experience I had. The problem is, I recently learned that the site is not accessable with other browsers other than IE. The main problem is the Links don't work. I have loaded Firefox and Opera myself to try this out and they just don't work. Upon my investigation into this problem I have learned about the standards in coding when web developing. Is this the main reason other browsers cannot access this website? Can anyone give me some advice on how to clear this problem up? I used FP 2003 to build this site. I have no coding experience but, I am now learning. I have stumbled upon HTML KIT to show me and correct some of the coding. Are there other tools I could use to clean the whole site up without much damage or, do I need to start over page by page? the website is www.itsallaboutscuba.com Thanks in advance.

Skip,

That's strange. I tried it 10 minutes ago, found out you made the page with MS Frontpage generating some xml-dialect, and - indeed - it didn't work in Firefox.

I was just planning to have a look at this (interesting) problem - but it won't be until Friday that I have enough time -, but right now it works in Firefox. Same page, only 10 minutes difference. Did you change something? If so, can you tell what you changed? Could it be it has something to do with a textbox?
Anyway, it seems you've solved it. Good job.

yes, It was because of using a textbox. I must of been in the middle of working on it when you noticed it working. Thank you very much for your help. Any other suggestion for a self made rookie would be appreciated. Again thanks!

I have the links all working but, the page looks different in foxfire and opera. The buttons are spread out and the text is spread out also.
Any ideas? Thank you!

That's not really practical.

He uses Microsoft Frontpage.

I think the best way to get more browser independent pages is to use a more independent tool. There are many, and Frontpage isn't necessarily the best. But that's a rather big step to take.

Examples

Can you give me some examples of names that are user friendly? I have Dreamweaver mx 2004 but I haven't had the time to get used to it yet. I would like to start using it with a new project- not in the middle of one. Is there something similar to Frontpage that is more independent?

Thanks Kees.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
