Homepage rendered in IE 5.x correctly where Mozilla could not.
page renders much better in quirks mode if you remove the DOCTYPE at the begining. there are several major errors in the page source. this is not a browser/table problem.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Priority: -- → P5
The page triggers standards mode by advertising adherence to a current strict doctype. Then it fails to adhere to the doctype and worse yet has unterminated comments like "<!-- comment -- more stuff -->" As a result, much of the page is commented out and it is shown wrong. This is evangelism.

6 months later, the page is still malformed. It does, however, offer the following helpful message: "Note: this site does not work with Netscape 7.01" This is the first time I've seen DOCTYPE HTML 4.01 Frameset on a non-frames page. As others have said, the most egregious errors could be corrected by removing the doctype and eliminating the invalid runs of dashes within comments.

I contacted Nicholas Martin Sperry informally and he removed the faulty doctype. The page looks quite nice now.
