Blank page problem fixed by removing CHARSET meta? (4 posts)

    blipnet.net looks quite messed up in firefox. that apart, what charset are you using. It might be that the browser cannot recognize the charset from the definition.
    I always use UTF-8, so if you do the same then you can hard-code it into your index.php template, though it is not suggested.

    Ewww, you weren't joking about Firefox. <le sigh> Thanks for the heads up, I hadn't gotten around to trying that yet! :)
    I guess I could hard-code the UTF-8 in.
    I'm just confused why removing the line fixes the problem.

    Well I'm afraid I can't help you much as far as an explanation goes, but I did institute the archives.php file on my site http://www.smammers.com and it does work perfectly. It has helped me cut down on some of the "clutter" in my menu. Thanks for the work! ;)

    After 2fargon's comment, I installed Firebired and what do you know -- the "blank page" issue isn't there. I only have it in IE 6.0.
    Oh well, for the time-being, I'm going to leave the CHARSET META commented out. I'll try hard-coding it in later on and see how it goes. :)
