Newbie Question:Previewing in Opera


Please pardon the simplicity of this question. I'm in the midst of building my first CityDesk site and it looks fine in IE and Mozilla. However, when I preview it in Opera all I get is a blank screen. The page actually loads, I can even look at the source code but nothing is visable.

Again, this only happens in Opera.

Any thoughts?

Could you post a link to the site?

you can try a HTML validator. These are available online or offline (e.g htmltidy; there have been recent posts in this forum of Tidy versions in combination with Citydesk).

It also may have to do with the doctype.

Every once in a while, I have to hit ESC to get a page to finally render in Opera. Try that.

What version of Opera are you using?

I'm seeing the preview with Opera 6.0.6 just fine.  However, if your main page is just a big graphic (not a good idea, IMHO) and you have disabled graphics loading by default, remember to press G to toggle whether or not images should be loaded.  It's a tri-state toggle, by the way.  (Is that an oxymoron?)
