jumbled jibberish with IE6

 6:37 am on Mar 6, 2003 (gmt 0)

I have kind of a strange problem that baffles me. But I'm not an html expert so I'm bringing it here. I have two pages that are not very complicated - just html and tables. But they bring up a white screen full of jibberish characters under the following circumstances:

1. I clear the cache and delete the all temporary internet files so I'm starting from scratch.

2. Then when I click on the page, the jibberish comes up. I can click the refresh button and the page jibberish just keeps reloading. But if I backspace out, then click on the URL again, the page comes up fine.

This only happens with IE6. With Opera 6 or Netscape 4.7, the two pages come up correctly all the time.

If you want to have a look, the two pages are:

<sorry, no personal urls>

I'm baffled. I have other similar pages for which the design structure seems the same to me, but they always work fine. Does any expert have a clue?

Sorry, the pages work fine for me IE6.0.2800.1106 :)

I also tried the pages with IE6 and they were fine.

You may want to lose those URLs astounded. We don't do site reviews here. Instead you may want to explain the problem and perhaps post some code snippets.

Yes, posting "personal" URLs is against the terms of service here.

However, I'd recommend validating your pages using the W3C validator at [validator.w3.org...]

At least one rather serious problem, I'm afraid...

Ok, I changed my profile so one of the links that doesn't work properly is listed as my home page in my user profile. That's one of them that brings up jibberish.
