Hi,

I just started designing a new website and i have hit a problem with Opera. When i view the page it does not display at all. I have no problems viewing the page in other browsers that i have tried (Internet Explorer, Netscape and Firefox).

Has anyone else has this problem?

Any ideas what can be causing it?

The page in question has an external CSS file (nothing fancy just text instructions) their are no scripts on the page. The Opera browser that i am using is version 7.23.

Any help or advice you can give me will be much appreciated.

thanks

Scott

First place to look:

Check HTML Validation [validator.w3.org] at the W3C

Try turning off styles and see if anything is shown.

Thanks for the replies,

I worked out using the html checker that i was loading the CSS file wrong i was using;

<style type="text/css">
<!--
@import url(../style.css);
</style>

when i should have used <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

thanks for the help

Opera has no problems with @import url(../style.css). The problem is that you've forgotten to close the comment:

<style type="text/css">
<!--
@import url(../style.css);
-->
</style>

Thanks Ron,

I'll keep that in mind for future reference.
