Fixed–Problems Visiting Pine View Farm with Internet Explorer0
The problems appear to be fixed. See this post.
Internet Explorer doesn’t like me.
That’s okay. I don’t like it. (See Note.)
But it’s sabotaging this blog.
Three persons have now reported that, when they have tried to post a comment from IE, there is code in the “Comments” field and no “Submit” button, so, even if they delete the code from their view, they can’t post a comment.
I checked it out with the sole copy of IE remaining in this house. What’s happening is that IE is displaying the contents of one of the *.php files that govern the behavior of this site and displaying it in the “Comments” field.
The blog works fine in Opera, Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, Konqueror, and Galeon.
While I try to track down the problem, the best suggestion I have is to get Opera. Heck, I suggest that anyone get Opera anyway. It’s easily the best.
Note: IE is notoriously non-standards compliant. This was actually a marketing technique on the part of Micro$oft. They would write non-standards-compliant stuff, then hope the web-designers would write stuff that worked in IE and therefore would not work in other browsers, cementing their hold on the market.
