Geez, I just spent like, an hour rewriting Julie's (just_joolie) journal style code.

She was using something she snagged from cherrystyle. The code looked like it was written by a drunk reeses monkey on a manual typewriter. I'm surprised the pages rendered at all. I fixed it up to work properly.

The cherrystyle community page warns: "Abuse of my time and generousity [sic] will result in your being banned. This is non-negotionable [sic]."

Wow, how generous. I wish I could negotioniate with them to get some of my time back for fixing their jacked up code.

Re:

well yes but something in the code itself was causing the crash which is no longer causing the crash... and are you getting smart with me? don't make me @#$*(& (*&( %@#$*%! lol :)

Re:

I'm curious, too--I saw a number of things that I thought could have been it ('cause they're really...umm..."odd features" in IE). I like Jarrett's description of the code--very apt :-)

Re:

The first thing I tried was taking out some of the fancy styles and filters and cursors, but that wasn't the problem.

The code structure was just completely wrecked... lots of unclosed tags, improper nesting... heck, the page didn't even have a BODY tag.

But the last thing I noticed is that they failed to close their main TABLE tag, which may have been the problem all along.

More likely, though, it that it was a unique combination of small errors that caused the crash.

Uh..

Did you mean a drunk *rhesus* monkey? Reeses monkeys make peanut butter cups.
