I haven't worked on websites in over 5 years but someone asked me if I could revise their website so I figured it would be easy...

Well I grabbed the source code and the graphics, but when I view the website offline all the layout specification (paragraphing and two column) are not adhered to... graphics are missing and background color isn't there... the content is on a white background and all left justified. When viewed in Firefox the links are working, but in Explorer only 50% of the page links work.

It's probably something simple as I've not had enough coffee, but if someone knows what I'm missed I'd appreciate the help.

Did you get the external style sheets and javascripts, if any?

How did you get the files? FTP? HTTP?

Sounds like it needs a lot of work, you might be able to download a trial copy of Dreamweaver to get things up and going.

Also very likely: the paths are screwed up. Try some intuitive fiddling with those.

And remember to turn caching off in your browser.

dM,

I didn't get the external style sheet... Thanks I think that is part of the problem... the other is I've been out-of-design way too long.

HIG,

I'm old-school I like coding sites from the ground up without an editor... I'll pass on DreamWeaver

mk27,

Thanks for your tips, I'll keep them in mind.

Good choice. I think the dreamweaver is more like "drop out of school -- what you see is what you get" but I'm opinionated.

joebert,

doubt it... I just wasn't up-to-speed on the new-fangled way of style sheets... I have some "reading" to do, and a website to revise by yesterday

to the rest,

thanks for your assistance!
