    The page in question is working without a glitch in IE (I'm using v.7), but there is a problem in Firefox (v.3.0.5).

    The problem is related to the internal links (a.k.a. tags: <a name="NAME"></a> and <a href="#NAME"></a>). They just do not work. :mad:

    To see the problem just go to: http://www.th4u.com/embassies.htm and click on any of the flags...

    I'm not a FF expert but apparently they won't work so you'll need to find a solution. Sorry, I don't have one.

    example for Embassy of Australia you need to put <a name="ausl"></a> within <th>...</th>

    the code :
    <th><a name="ausl">Embassy of Australia <a href="http://www.austembassy.or.th" target="_blank"><font face="Arial" size="1">Website</font></a></th>

    Thank you very much. That did the trick. As soon as I moved the code (<a name="NAME"></a>) from <tr> tag into <td>, everything is working as intended.

    An aside question, if I may.
    It is about the <hr> tag on the same page (http://www.th4u.com/embassies.htm). If you compare how it looks in IE and FF, you'll see the difference.
    It is implemented by the following code (in the header inside the <style> tags:
    hr.sub{color:red;height:7px;border: double 2px blue}
    Code (markup):
    What is the problem ?

    some properties are varied display by web browser rendering such as border: double. I hardly use double to prevent this problem.

    for the <a name>, have the end tag right after you declare it. :) Try to use less of font tags too btw, use css instead. ;)

    Yes, I know that it is possible to put the code together like this ( <a name="NAME"></a> ), thank you.
    I was struggling with that problem quite a long time, trying many and different alternatives, options, changes, etc., till a simple solution of placing the code outside the <tr> tag was suggested by normalfx.

    by the way you don't need <a name="NAME"></a> anymore. just declare The ID in your table th cell.
    code:
    original
    <th><a name="ausl">Embassy of Australia <a href="http://www.austembassy.or.th" target="_blank"><font face="Arial" size="1">Website</font></a></th>

    more clean up
    <th id="ausl">Embassy of Australia <a href="http://www.austembassy.or.th" target="_blank"><font face="Arial" size="1">Website</font></a></th>
