--for a interactive training suport program on how to use your fat frog effectivly why not look at my frog training program available from the frog training website--

Sam,

I'm interested in this training, as I lhave a frog in a school, and it could be of use with the kids, I cannot get it to work however. I suspect it is in some non standard format that only Internet explorer uses? I don't have access to this at home, any advice?

I've fished through the html and found a direct link the to presentation, but be warned it first off complains that it needs Internet Explorer and a number of pages do not render properly.

I am aware of some compatibility issues with certain browsers

Certain browsers?! You mean every browser with the exception of IE!

Let me ask you a question - if you published your Frog training program as a book, would you publish it in such a way that people needed to wear a certain type of spectacles in order to be able to read it? Or would you publish it in such a way that it can be read by everyone? :(

As I am aware it onlyworks on Netscape Navigator and IE. If I had the technical expertise to change this then I would but unfortunetly I don't.

Like I said If you want it on disk please let me know.

what did you design the site in? It is probably because of all the non-standered pictures and the fact that the text is all gifs, did you create the website in a dtp package such as publisher, or word? Also instead of using power point for the online version how about creating it as a pdf, if you cant do this then e-mail it to me (PM me for best addres) and I will make it a pdf and send it back. Also if you wish I will (in a while when I have less school work) help you re-design the site.

Also this seems to be drifting a little :(

It seems to work ok in Safari on the Mac if you follow this link http://www.frogtraining.pwp.blueyonder.co....files/frame.htm (posted by richard_cooper).

Good point, it also mostly works on Konqueror on Linux (as safari is based on Konqueror that should follow!)

Sam, I'd be interested in it on a disk. One fairly easy way to fix this would be to open the powerpoint file in OpenOffice where it can be exported to HTML (in a way that is much more browser friendly), or directly to PDF and even as a Flash file. OpenOffice is a free download but at ~65MB you will need a fast connection.

If you were interested in this route I could send you OpenOffice on a disk? I encourage everyone to look at OpenOffice especially for it's drawing module that I find to be very useful with it's ability to export direct to PDF.

Moderation: Topic split as it was getting far too off-topic in the previous thread!

And for what it's worth, Opera 7.23 doesn't like it.
