My Home Page does not display properly in Internet Explorer or Safari. It looks fine with Firefox.

In IE/Safari the Home Page stops at the caption for the Cafe Wollzeile photo. The rest of the content of the page starting with "Why the website?" does not display. When I open the edit page, everything I want to have on the page displays correctly. It also displays correctly in Firefox.

I don't know what to do. Please help.

You pasted content form Microsoft Word into your page. What a lot of people don't realize is when you paste in Word content, you're also pasting in a whole bunch of Word code behind the scenes. There was so much extraneous code in there it's amazing that this is all it caused.

I stripped the Word code out of there the best I could for you, but you may have a little reformatting to do.

Here's a tip: If you have content in Word that you want on your web site, first paste it into Notepad. That will strip out all code behind the scenes. And then copy it again from notepade and THEN paste it into your web site. This will keep your text 100% clean and you'll avoid having the "dreaded Word code problem" again.

I had read that warning about pasting from Word and I was careful about moving everything to Notepad and copying from there. I guess I wasn't careful enough. Thanks for your help.
