  • After retesting, they work in IE10 compatibility mode (=IE7 Standards), but not in IE10 with IE8 Standards mode or better.
    The links also work in FireFox 18
     
    A quick fix would be to add a meta tag like
    <meta content="IE=7" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" />
    to force IE7 compatiblity, which will be OK until the errors in the page are corrected, for example:
     
    <td style="width: 3134px; text-align: left; height: 93px;" class="newStyle4" valign="top">
    This cell being contained in a table 1020px wide (along with other cells in the same row), and that table is in a cell 621px wide!

  • You have to give us a link to the page with the issue, and tell us exactly where to look.

    We can't guess from a description what is going on with your site.

  • won't let me include link till they verify my account??? how can I resolve this new problem?

  • Type it in with spaces between the  name . com.

    (We can't tell you how to resolve the "verify" problem.  You'll have to in the Forum problems area (click on Forums Home to find it.  It's something new that those of us around for years have never had to deal with.)

  • Not easy to find with so many links. Can you give us specific examples of links that don't work on that page?

  • It is most of them.
    SES Partners with O3B, Narrowband VSAT and Xiplink (about halfway down th page)  work - almost all the rest fail as described.

  • I can confirm that some of the links don't work in IE 10 and frankly the code, particularly the styles is such a mess it would take hours to figure out what is apply where. I can't for the life of me understand why you would need so much code for such a simply displayed page. It looks like it may either be in or once have been in a CMS  so my best advice would be to do some serious clean-up.

    BTW, I have my IE set to always render in standards mode and ignore any compatibility metas. I doubt I'm the only one so take that into consideration when you make a decision on what to do to get the page working.

  • Thanks Ron

    IE10 appears to be the problem, inserting <meta content="IE=7" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" /> worked.

  • They work in most, but not in IE10 now working by adding this <meta content="IE=7" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" />
