How do I fix my browser up?

cool IE glow, and tables print on a second page rather then on both pages.

For printing my invoices online I view them over my browser and print them.
I love Mac version of IE with the cool blue that highlites the last link you visited, especially on image links. Helpful so you do not print the same one twice or skip one.

However on IE it prints my tables quite awkward. I get about 6-10 lines of text and a lot of white space on page 1, and the table with all the purchase data goes staight to page 2 making the invoice really wierd looking. I get the same problem with netscape too.

Safari does spit the long table into 2 pages as I like, but it doesn't highlite the last link I visited.(image link). What css option can I load into my page?

I assume you've got something like this:
<a href=""><img src=""></a>

then you can do something like this :

a:visited img {border: 2px solid blue;}

Thanks, I feel very welcome in this section. And I should have thought about trying css, but I never applied css to an image before.

About mac version of ms ie: the table that included the ordered product description on my invoices leaving blank sections, I took the whole page and nested in inside a large table :) It works awesome now!

Now if I can just break in this stiff keyboard :)

About Mac IE: I've stopped supporting it explicitly. M$ has stopped development on the program, and with so many much better alternatives (the Gecko-range of browsers, the web-kit range of browsers, Opera) Mac IE is now way past the last date of sale. IE 5 Mac *was* the best browser when introduced and for several years, but with the M$ policy of late not to update their browser versions except for security reasons, there's way better alternatives now.

I sympathize with this policy. Just don't forget about the institutional users at U.S. public schools with budgets that have not yet ugraded their OS 9 machines. They are generally stuck using Mac IE 5. If those are not your users, then they can definitely be ignored. :)

Well, for OS 9 you can get
- a Mozilla 1.3.1 from [wamcom.org...]
- Opera 6.0.3 [opera.com...]

Of these, I consider the wamcom Mozilla to be the better, and I've switched everybody I'm 'tech support' for over to this.

So even OS 9 isn't stuck with the legacy code of IE 5
