Just coming back to the original problem...

No doubt, but is this actually relevant? I mean 4.0 should still turn
this trick, yes? I don't know when going to a page and down to a named
anchor was 'approved' but I'd have thought quite early on in versions.
It's curious that no one else has had a problem, I wonder if it's a
corruption thing in the copy I have. Could this be possible? - it's so

That's very interesting. Dare I trust it though? I suppose I could just
proceed, making a note of what to check, test and change to something
else that i know works, sharpish. Thanks for your thoughts - I will

Thanks - I tried this - checking my cases - and again including the
space you put after 'News', in case you meant have one - but no joy I'm
afraid, whichever way I call it.

I agree. It's just that NS fails to find it. On another page, with a
similar requirement, NS just throws up a blank page... NS also doesn't
like '100%' within a table for say a bar across, whereas IE is as happy
as a village idiot about it.
I really don't know what else to do now, bar trying a different copy of
NS4 - Unless it SHOULDN'T work in this, I want to get it to work.
Regarding newer versions of browsers etc. I tend to think that lagging
behind the leading runners must be safest if I want to be sure of
reaching most people. The clever bit will be keeping the right position
as the racers spread out. (Just a metaphor!) At the end of the day my
website is a means to an end, and I have limited time to spend keeping
up to speed - indeed I have cursed :) NTB for inveigling me into HTML
and revealing its innards, when I thought that I'd just be whacking
something together like Frontpage. But in the long run knowing my site
inside out must be best for what I want. It's a bit like building a
pyramid - takes ages to get far off the ground... Just hate these odd

I'm off to a fjord and a boat for a while. I still would like any other
ideas to try if there are any, but won't be able to acknowledge until I
