Often the images at the top of this page will not be loaded. Only the alt tags will be shown, instead of these images.
This is due to the carriage returns in the URLs for the images. Removing those fixes the problem. This has been fixed on the trunk as of the evening of November 6. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 57968 ***

I just sent the following message to their "contact us" page: Netscape 6 will not display the main page correctly at all. I've included a simple fix for you below. Hello, my name is Eric, and I'm a Netscape employee working on the Netscape 6 web browser. We have just recently finalized our browser and will be shipping *soon*! Unfortunately, software always ships with bugs, and your site is displaying badly because of a bug in our browser. All of the images on the top of the page do not display because the SRC urls have a linebreak in the middle of them. Here's an example: <img src="http://a772.g.akamai.net/7/772/51/9177d8599b8337/www.apple.com/t/ us/en/i/1hi.gif" width="91" height="42" alt="Apple." border="0"> Notice how the us/en/i/1hi.gif" appears on a separate line from the rest of the SRC attribute for the IMG? This will cause the image to not display at all, and instead the text "Apple." will appear. This can be rewritten like this: <img src="http://a772.g.akamai.net/7/772/51/9177d8599b8337/www.apple.com/t/us/en/i/1hi.gif" width="91" height="42" alt="Apple." border="0"> And it will display perfectly! The problem with your site was reported to us today, here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59409 The bug *will* be shipping in Netscape 6, and Netscape 6 will be shipping *very soon*!!! To obtain a build for testing, try the builds here: Mac: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2000-11-08-08-MN6/MacMozillaInstaller.sea.bin Windows: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2000-11-08-09-MN6/mozilla-win32-installer.exe Linux: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2000-11-08-09-MN6/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-installer.tar.gz Solaris: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2000-11-08-09-MN6/mozilla-sparc-sun-solaris2.6.tar.gz Hope you can get this fixed in time for the Netscape release. Let me know if I can help in anyway. Thanks! -Eric

Received an automated response last night and a seemingly non-automated response today but neither indicate that the problem has been looked at yet.
Received a response - their webmaster looked into the problem and even downloaded a Mozilla nightly to test with. Was unable to reproduce (I think they may have been using an Mtrunk instead of an MN6 build). I sent more information on exactly which build to get.
The webmaster has fixed the problem (bravo - great response time!) :) I am now looking into a whitespace problem that the webmaster noticed. This is an unrelated issue, and seems to be caused by the transitional doctype declaration.
