Nice pics,

But the text at bottom of first image is yellow - unreadable

Joe,
some internet portals employ data compression that eliminates
backgrounds, especially with dialup services or slower DSL lines. My
background is blue swirl. So, you may be in a compression mode.
AOL blocks my music and sometimes even my background if you use the
AOL for login, but you can hear the music if you go directly to the
internet.

Ruben,
Everything is fine - even the music. I was trying to read the paragraph at
the bottom, but "yellow text" on the white background, made it unreadable.

I'm using high speed internet cable, and IE7, with no AOL connection.
Maybe Netscape or other browsers don't have a problem here?

Just a head up.

I had the same problem with the text - and we are on the fastest DSL as well. I got around the problem by highlighting the text with the cursor and reading white on blue - not ideal but it worked.

Dear Joe and Murry,
I found this line in the help section of my web software:
"Some web browsers can understand only hexadecimal colors. If you're
using an unusual color that your browser can't decode, your browser
will replace your background color with a color it does understand."
So, I have changed to a simpler color, that I hope now allows for
better reading. If you can confirm that the dark blue background is
now visible, I can begin the tedious task of updating my hundred or
so web pages.

Thanks Ruben,

The blue background works. Now I can read your info.
Something else: every time I click on any selection on your pages, IE7 gives
me a warning:
"Click to run an ActiveX Control on this page".
It doesn't matter what I click on. I haven't had this happen before.
Perhaps you can look into that problem.
What browser are you running? Some of the code may be missing a default, or
gets called too often.

Perhaps you can look into that problem.
Microsoft was sued, and lost, by a company named Eolas that patented
the technology used by your browser to render media players and the
like (in any web page). Microsoft refused to pay the royalties, and
instead went with a workaround, wherein the necessary HTML is added
not directly to the web page, but by using external Javascript.

I think that's detailed enough for an astronomy forum :-) We now
resume our regularly scheduled overcast evening ...

Hi Louis,
If so, I did download JAVA form Sun, and have been running it with a lot
of website scripts, without this error. I believe Microsoft withdrew their
JAVA in XP SP1A.
Anyway, the SUN JAVA processor seems to work fine, even in IE7 - but this
one website seems different.

Oh well, I'm glad to finally see the scopes an the sky sheds.

That's because Java is NOT JavaScript. JavaScript is a client-side
language which runs in your browser and is not from Sun. Java is a
full-blown programming language which can create applets that run in a
browser, but that's not the same thing.

Microsoft withdrew their "version" of the Java runtime after they, you
guessed it, got sued by Sun for changing the way Java works to suit them.

I hope this is helpful.
