It works in Firefox!

I recently added some ads to my web page. The ones in the lower left and right corners of my page intermittently don't appear in Internet Explorer (Version 6, SP2). They seem to appear fine in Mozilla Firefox (Version 5). I'm not sure if it's my height width settings for the table data being to small or what, but none of the other ads seem to be affected. If I mouse-over the spot where the ads should be, I'll be taken to the appropriate place, but sometimes they're invisible.

Intermittent problems are hardest to trouble shoot!

Has anyone experienced something like this before?

Please feel free to critique too.

I just saw a post where someone was asking for help with the look of her web page. Please let me know what I can do better on the site too!

Using 800 x 600 pixels, I do not see any ads using Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7 with ad block.

Using Internet Explorer, I get different results everytime I refresh the page.

I use HTML Validator to view an correct the errors on the website I take care of. It is a very useful tool and it's FREE.

Awsome, Thanks!

Very cool utility!

I'm not sure I can correct any of the errors that are in code for the ads. I'll have to check out that ad block thing for Firefox.

Thanks for the help!
