On my Update & News link I added an image to some previously entered text. A few days late I deleted the image and the 3 paragraphs of text disappeared also. Is it in that link somewhere where I can't find it or is it gone?

Hi Judith,

You should have Brad or Jessica check out your homepage - you have some major "blowout" issues in there and I see some problems around a picture you inserted as well.

Can you be more specific about the problems you see?

Help! I do all my editing in Mozilla. When Dawn alerted me to problems with my home page I didn't know what she was talking about since my page looked great with Mozilla. When I opened it in Explorer it was a mess. What's happening?

I first figured this was Microsoft Word code, which often causes problems like this. Looking at your code though, it doesn't appear to be Word itself, but some type of code you're copying and pasting in from Microsoft Office. I'm not sure which application exactly, I'm not familiar with any code quite like this. Since you don't have much content on the page here's your best bet:

1) Copy all content on the page (in your regular view, not in source view)
2) Paste it into Notepad
3) Reselect all content in Notepad
4) Paste it back into your web site
5) Format as you see fit

Be very careful with copying and pasting code from other applications. As you can see none of that code is compatible with the web. Even if you're not using Word to create your content, and are using some other office app, use the Paste From Word icon (one icon to the right of the regular paste icon) instead of the regular paste feature. This will usually strip out most of the offending code and these kinds of problems will be rare.

I did what you suggested and it's much, much better but my Home Page is still pushed out a little in IE. It's fine in Mozilla. How do I get my right margin fixed?

In this case the problem is your last Announcement, called Bulletin Board. You've got the same code problem there. Thus, fix that Announcement using the same procedure above. Once you do, your right border will return to normal.

Right, but how do I copy the code to Notepad if I can't go in the Source box? There's no text other than the picture.

There was about 30 lines or so of Office code (this time I think it may have been Word) under your image. I zapped the extraneous code, just leaving the image.
