Not all web page content is displayed (Firefox, IE, Chrome)

I don't know if this is a CSS problem but I am having a problem where my dynamically created webpages are created at the server and downloaded to my web browser but all the web browsers will only display part of the content.

 

If I view the web page source code, all the content is there but it is simply invisible in the web browsers.

 

This problem seems to be intermittent.

 

One minute the page content displays properly but then when I refresh the webpage most of the content disappear and I can't get it to display again.

 

Does anyone have any clue as to what the ###### is going wrong here?

that resemble Australia's natural landscapes. Here are two of my favourites:</li>	</ul>	<p style="margin-left: 50px;">	<a href="images/HeaderPond.jpg">	<img alt="" height="417" src="images/HeaderPond.jpg" width="550"></a></p>	<p style="margin-left: 50px;">	<a href="images/HeaderOutback.jpg">	<img alt="" height="415" src="images/HeaderOutback.jpg" width="548"></a></p>	<h4>Weed Control</h4>	<ul>		<li>For short term weed control I use herbicides and thick layers of bush mulch.</li>		<li>Unfortunately herbicides are a necessary evil given that most of us do not have that much spare time these days to devote to hand weeding.</li>		<li>But my aim is always to minimise the their use as far as possible, and they are all biodegradeable.</li>		<li>A thick layer of bush mulch laid directly over the soil goes a long way to suppressing weeds and minimising herbicide usage for around 12 months until the ground cover plants get established and take over the weed suppression role.</li>		<li>As you can see from the pond above, weeds have little chance of being able to row through the dense covering of plants.</li>		<li>The desert garden actually consists of a thick layer of bush mulch which I have then covered with terracotta tile 7mm minus.</li>	</ul>	<h4>Bush Mulch</h4>	<ul>		<li>The bush mulch comes straight from the tree loppers that operate around the suburbs.</li>		<li>It is usually quite fresh and the fact that it is actively 'cooking' when I lay it means that it creates a very hostile environment for weed seedlings.</li>		<li>However it does need topping up every 1-2 years because it thins out as it cooks, and weeds eventually start establishing in the garden bed.</li>		<li>This mulch is a completely sustianble product because there is never a shortage of trees throughout the suburbs that need to be lopped or removed and the 'mulch miles' are minimal.</li>		<li>The mulch contains a mixture of both woody and green leafy material.</li>		<li>The green leafy material in particular breaks down quickly, enriches the soil with nutrients and organic matter and encourages earth worms.</li>		<li>All in all it is a terrific and cheap soil improver if you use it on your garden beds over a long period of time.</li>		<li>Fresh bush mulch:</li>	</ul>	<p style="margin-left: 50px;">	<a href="images/TreeMulchFresh.JPG">	<img alt="" height="298" src="images/TreeMulchFresh.JPG" width="400"></a></p>	<ul>		<li>Aged bush mulch:</li>	</ul>	<p style="margin-left: 50px;">	<img alt="" height="294" src="images/TreeMulchAged.jpg" width="400"></p>	<ul>		<li>The convenient thing about this sort of mulch is 		that:<ol>			<li>And leaf debris etc that blows into your garden from the street simply belnds in with it.</li>			<li>You can shred your garden waste and use the resulting mulch on your garden beds - it quickly bleaches in the sun and blends in.</li>			<li>It is inexpensive and you can afford to lay it thickly.</li>		</ol>		</li>		<li style="height: 38px">The problem with more formal gardens with decorative mulches is that leaf debris is very noticeable and spoils the look of the garden bed within weeks or months:</li>	</ul>	<p style="margin-left: 50px;">	<img alt="" height="316" src="images/LeafDebrisDecorativeMulch.jpg" width="236"></p>	<ul>		<li style="height: 38px">The red desert garden and the natural pond above are informal, so any leaf debris that blows onto them blends in with their overall look - you would expect to see some plant debris in the desert or around a pond.</li>	</ul>	<h4>No Plastic Weed Mat</h4>	<ul>		<li>I wont use plastic weed mat so please don't ask me.</li>		<li>It simply does not stop weeds as well as a 5-10cm thick layer of tree mulch laid driectly over the soil and maintained!</li>		<li>And it's a comletely avoidable form of plastic pollution.</li>		<li>Unlike the herbicides I use, plastic is not biodegradeable, will last for thousands of years and it will do greater and greater environmenal harm is it breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces which can be consumed by insects etc.</li>	<p>		If you would like to learn a bit more about the 		environmental harm that plastics do then please click		<a href="http://education.nationalgeographic.com.au/education/encyclopedia/great-pacific-			garbage-patch/?ar_a=1">here</a>.	</p>		<li>Many weeds simply grow through the weave and then, when you hand weed, you end up tearing holes in the weed mat which allows even more weeds to grow.</li>		<li>It prevents earth worms from incorporating organic matter from the mulch into the underlying soil.</li>		<li>It reduces infiltration of rainfall into the underlying soil.</li>		<li>It reduces aeration of the soil.</li>	</ul>	<h4>Quotes</h4>	<ul>		<li>As well as a fully itemised quote I will prepare a landscape plan for you property detailing all aspects of the work I will carry out.</li>		<li>This will take the form of a Microsoft Word document and will include:<ol>			<li> All the plant species.</li>			<li>All soils, mulches and pebbles.</li>			<li>All edging, retaining walls and paving materials, including construction details.</li>			<li>Weed control methods and maintenance instructions.</li>		</ol>		</li>	</ul>	<hr>	<h3>Have you got possums in your roof?</h3>	<p>They always seem to end up nesting in your wall cavities don't they!</p>	<p>Meaning that they prefer tight little nooks rather than your open roof space.</p>	<p>So instead of continually trying to get them out of your roof why don't you provide them with alternative accomodation they they would no doubt prefer anyway.</p>	<p>Buy a coule of flat pack possum next boxes, assemble them and put them up in any convenient trees or even up under your eves.</p>	<p>The nest boxes have been designed by the Melbourne Wildlife Sanctuary according to the types of tree hollows that their research has shown that possoms tend to favour.</p>	<p>	<a href="images/plants/BrushtailPossumNestBoxFlat.jpg">	<img alt="" height="283" src="images/plants/BrushtailPossumNestBoxFlat.jpg" width="400" style="border-width: 0px;"></a></p>	<p>	<a href="images/plants/BrushtailPossumNestBox.jpg">	<img alt="" style="border-width:0px;margin-bottom:0px;" height="300" src="images/plants/BrushtailPossumNestBox.jpg" width="400"></a></p>	<hr>	<h3>Got drainage problems?</h3>	<ul>		<li>Don't solve it the hard and expensive way with excavation, geotextiles, aggy pipe and gravel.</li>		<li>Plants are the perfect 'water pumps' - they transpire.</li>		<li>Tranpsiation is the process where by water, containing nutrients, is:<ul>			<li>Taken up by the roots from the soil.</li>			<li>Drawn up through the microscopic tubes called xylem, that extend unbroken from the roots tips to the leaves, via capillary action.</li>			<li>And then released from the leaves as water 			vapour.</li>		</ul>		</li>		<li>If you have a wet area near the house then plant it out with a variety of aquatic herbs like:</li>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">Hydrocoyle verticillata</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">				<a href="images/plants/Hydrocotyle_verticillata.jpg">					<img alt="" height="594" src="images/plants/Hydrocotyle_verticillata.jpg" style="height: 300px; width: 400px; border-width: 0px" width="792" />				</a>			</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">Villarsia reniformis</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">				<a href="images/plants/Villarsia_reniformis.jpg">					<img alt="" height="233" src="images/plants/Villarsia_reniformis.jpg" width="400" />				</a>			</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">Viola hederacea</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">				<a href="images/plants/Viola_hederacea.jpg">					<img alt="" height="300" src="images/plants/Viola_hederacea.jpg" width="400" />				</a>			</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">Marsillea drummondii.</p>			<p style="margin-left:40px;">				<a href="images/plants/Marsilea_drummondii.jpg">					<img alt="" height="300" src="images/plants/Marsilea_drummondii.jpg" width="400" />				</a>			</p>		<li>If the wet area is a safe distance from any structure then plant it out with small gum trees - the soil under mature gum trees is always bone dry.</li>	</ul>	<hr>	<h3>Artificial Turf</h3>					<p>The problem with artificial turf is that it looks great 					to begin with, but it is all down hill from there:</p>					<p><a href="images/ArtificialTurf.jpg">					<img alt="" height="550" src="images/ArtificialTurf.jpg" style="height: 300px; width: 400px; border-width: 0px" width="733"></a></p>					<p>The only way to fix this is to tear it all up and start 					again. A very expensive fix!</p>	<h3>Native Lawns</h3>					<p>With a native lawn you can simply let the grass go to 					seed, mow and collect the clippings plus mature seed and 					then scatter the clippings plus seed where you need it.</p>					<p>Or just buy some new seed for a fraction of the cost of 					replacing artificial turf.</p>					<p>And you don't necessarily have to mow native lawns if you 					don't mind a 'meadow' rather than a lawn.</p>					<p>'Griffin' <i>Microlaena stipoides</i></p>					<p>  <a href="images/Griffin_Microlaena_stipoides.jpg">					<img alt="" height="409" src="images/Griffin_Microlaena_stipoides.jpg" style="border-width: 0px" width="310"></a><a href="images/Griffin_Microlaena_stipoides2.jpg"><img alt="" height="411" src="images/Griffin_Microlaena_stipoides2.jpg" style="border-width: 0px" width="290"></a></p>					<p>'Oxley' <i>Austrodanthonia geniculata</i></p>					<p><a href="images/Oxley_Austrodanthonia_geniculata.jpg">					<img alt="" height="415" src="images/Oxley_Austrodanthonia_geniculata.jpg" style="border-width: 0px" width="597"></a></p>	<hr>	<h3>Instant Lawns..........Sigh!</h3>					<p>I have lost count of how many times I have seen people 					puting in rolled turf lawns only to have them turn to dust 					and weeds within a few years. I just don't get why folks 					keep, in Albert Einstein's own words, repeating the same 					experiment and expecting to get different results from all 					the previous experiments. </p>					<p>It is beyond my comprehension how so many people just 					blindly accept the marketing  hype from the rolled turf 					companies. Regardless of the advertising hype, the varieites they use are just not suited to 					average Australian conditions. They have shallow root 					systems are rely on consistent rainfall, or consistent 					irrigation, and deep rich loamy soils.</p>					<p>In this region of Australia we have none of these things. 					Our rainfall is erratic, we often 					have very hot dry summers that thouroughly dry out the top 					soils and we have heavy black clay 					soils that become water logged over winter. So you can't just roll out your instant turf, water 					it for a few weeks and then expect to have a beautiful 					English lawn for the next 20 years.</p>					<p>If you want an reliable lawn then use a native grass 					species that has adapted to the local conditions over many 					thousands of years, e.g. Microlaena stipoides, Austrodanthonia 					geniculata and Bothriochloa macra. All of these species have 					very deep root systems (30cm or more) that penetrate deep 					into the subsoil and access  moisture that is beyond 					the reach of rolled turf grass varities.</p>					<p>The fact that you can cut and roll up a turf means that 					the grass 					it must have shallow roots. If you attempted this with any 					of the native grasses then more than likely you would kill 					them because you will have removed most of their root 					system.</p>					<p>If you seriously want an English style lawn in Australia, 					then check out my native lawns page. But it does not mean 					that your English lawn is effortless. And you need patience 					and perserverance to successfully establish one. Something 					that a lot of Australians need to re-learn!</p>	<hr>	<h3>Do you own acerage?</h3>	<ul>		<li>If you own acerage in the City of Whittlesea 		municipality, or any adjacent muncipalities, and have 		DEPI on your back about Serrated Tussock, Paterson Curse 		and/or other noxious weeds then I can help.</li>		<p><a href="images/SerratedTussock.jpg">		<img alt="" height="300" src="images/SerratedTussock.jpg" width="400"></a></p>		<li>For a reasonable hourly rate I can spot spray these 		for you.</li>		<li>I have a current ACUP and 10 years experience in noxious weed control using a range of herbicides.</li>		<p><a href="images/ACUP.jpg">Agricultural Chemical Users Permit No: 19523</a></p>		<li>Give me a call or email me.</li>	</ul>	<hr>	<h3>Bush Tucker</h3>	<ul>		<li>Why not incorporate some bush tucker plants into 		your garden?</li>		<li>May of them a great looking ornamental plants and 		they produce something you can eat or cook with as well.</li>		<li>Check these out:			<ul>				<li><i>Santalum accuminatum</i> / Quandong</li>					<a href="images/plants/Santalum_acuminatum.jpg">					<img alt="" height="367" src="images/plants/Santalum_acuminatum.jpg" width="490" style="border-width: 0px; height: 299px; width: 400px;"></a>				<li><i>Kunzea pomifera</i> / Muntries</li>					<a href="images/plants/Kunzea_pomifera.jpg">					<img alt="" eight="364" src="images/plants/Kunzea_pomifera.jpg" width="490" style="border-width: 0px; width: 400px;"></a>				<li><i>Austromyrtus dulcis</i> / Midyim Berries</li>					<a href="images/plants/Austromyrtus_dulcis.jpg">					<img alt="" height="299" src="images/plants/Austromyrtus_dulcis.jpg" width="488" style="border-width: 0px; height: 245px; width: 400px;"></a>				<li><i>Backhousia citriodora</i> / Lemon Myrtle</li>					<a href="images/plants/Backhousia_citriodora.jpg">					<img alt="" height="355" src="images/plants/Backhousia_citriodora.jpg" width="488" style="border-width: 0px; height: 290px; width: 400px;"></a>				<li><i>Macadamia integrifolia</i> / Macadamia Nuts</li>					<a href="images/plants/Macadamia_integrifolia.jpg">					<img alt="" height="373" src="images/plants/Macadamia_integrifolia.jpg" width="487" style="border-width: 0px; height: 306px; width: 400px;"></a>				<li><i>Apium prostratum</i> / Native Parsley</li>					<a href="images/plants/Apium_prostratum.jpg">					<img alt="" height="364" src="images/plants/Apium_prostratum.jpg" width="486" style="border-width: 0px; height: 299px; width: 400px;"></a>				<li><i>Davidsonia puriens</i> / Davidson's Plum</li>					<a href="images/plants/Davidsonia_pruriens.jpg">					<img alt="" src="images/plants/Davidsonia_pruriens.jpg" height="413" width="486" style="border-width: 0px; height: 339px; width: 400px;"></a>			</ul>		</li>	</ul>					<h3>Quandong Jam</h3>					<p><a href="images/Quandongs.jpg">					<img alt="" height="334" src="images/Quandongs.jpg" style="height: 297px; width: 400px; border-width: 0px" width="449"></a></p>					<p>Makes 8cups</p>					<p>1kg fresh quandongs<br>1kg caster sugar<br>100ml water</p>					<p>Chop up the fruit and combine with sugar and water in a 					large saucepan and put it over medium heat, stirring 					constantly as it comes to the boil.

The Indian people have a sense of 					national prode and optimism for their future and respect for 					their politicians.</p>					<p>I find it an absolute disgrace that the best vision for 					Australia that both the ALP and Liberal/National parties can 					come up with is giant quarry operations and immigration 					driven property speculation and housing construction. The 					ALP agitates to increase social spending, without increasing 					national earnings, while Liberal/National parties agitate to 					cut social spending, without increasing national earnings.</p>					<p>If Australia is to move to the next economic level beyond 					quarry operations and unsustainable intensive agriculture, 					and have the money to pay for the social programs we all 					demand, then all three of parties, in their current forms, 					are an obstacle to be overcome.</p>					<p>Australia needs a credible alternative to the major 					parties other than the Greens.</p>	<p> </p>	<h3>Aging Population & Skills Shortages</h3>					<p>Australian big businesses wants millions more job seekers so that they 	can force down wages and conditions and increase profitiability.</p>					<p>Australian governments want millions more workers so they 					can increase their tax revenue to pay for burgeoning pension 					payments and Medicare costs.</p>					<p>The real estate sector wants millions more new home 					buyers to maintain the value of their property investments.</p>					<p>The construction sector, particularly those involved with 					housing estates and houses want millions more new home 					buyers to increase demand for their services.</p>					<p>All of them pay bribes to both major parties to ensure 					they both maintain an excessive immigration intake when in 					government and conspire to disempower local communities and 					councils to halt inappropriate high rise residential 					developmentss in their neighbourhoods.</p>					<p>All of them exagerate the aging population and skill 					shortages issues to ensure that the general public accepts 					their mantra that population growth is unavoidable and our 					economy will collapse without high immigration.</p>					<p>Except that our high immigration intake is having its own 					economic consequences the costs of which are being imposed 					on you rather than those who want population growth.</p>					<ol>						<li>All these new immigrants compete with locals for the 						limited supply of new and existing houses and rental 						properties thus forcing up prices and all but destroying 						the dreams of your children to own their own home. The 						real estate and contruction sectors love it though and 						indeed ration the supply of residential properties in 						order to maintain maximum profitability.</li>						<li>All these immigrants also want to drive cars and so 						choke our roads. Parts of the construction sector love 						it because they are then contracted to extend freeways 						and widen roads but you find yourself spending more and 						more time stuck in traffic one your way to and from 						work.</li>						<li>The government loves all the new tax payers that are 						boosting their revenue but then they will end up 						borrowing more money they they generate from increased 						taxes that the larger population will pay on the 						expansion of infrastructure and services that the 						increased population demands in order to maintain living 						stanbdards.</li>						<li>All the new immigrants want to run air conditioners 						in their McMansions. But increased peak demand for 						electrciity forces the electrcity retailers to upgrade 						their poles and wire to prevent them from melting down 						on hot summer days when everyone one is running their 						air conditioner. But then you find your electrciity 						bills growing larger and larger and have increasing 						difficulty in paying them.</li>						<li>During the recent 10 year drought, the exapnded 						population used more water daily than the current dams 						were ever envisaged to have to sustain. Many major 						cities came very close to running out of water forcing 						governments to build expensive desalination plants whose 						water we are contracted to purchase regardless of 						whether we need it. So you find your water bills 						increasing beyond your capacity to pay them easily.</li>						<li>When there is an economic down turn all the skilled 						immigrants end up in Centrelink looking for their 						handout.</li>						<li>Hospital emergency rooms are choked with skilled 						immigrants looking for their slice of Medicare funded 						treatement for minor ailments.</li>						<li>Our kids struggle to get their first job in the face 						of competition from skilled immigrants and the refusal 						of many employers to undertake on the job training.</li>						<li>And the government wants to increase the official 						retirment age but many employers wont hire older 						Australians when there are numerous younger skilled 						immigrants who are often willing to work for lower 						wages.</li>					</ol>					<p>So this massive skilled immigration program and 					population growth is solving this supposed economic crisis 					of skills shortages and an aging population how exactly? 					Seems to me that it is just exascerbating the problem.</p>					<p>Or perhaps it solving the financial problems of a few 					narrow sectors in our economy while allowing them to off 					load all the economic and social costs on to ordinary 					Australians like you and I.</p>					<p>Mean while you vote for the ALP one election and the 					Coalition at the next election and you wonder why your vote 					never seems to make your life easier.Why do you think that 					is?</p>					<p>Perhaps because real estate and assorted big businesses 					who want population growth are bribing both major parties to 					maintain high immigration and population growth which they 					all want in order to maximise their own profitiability. Both 					major parties primarily represent the interests of those 					bribimg them while going out of their way to appear as 					though they are representing your interests.</p>					<p>When there is one simple thing that either of them could 					do, to ease cost of living pressures and to ease traffic 					congestion and housing costs, with a stroke of their pen. 					I.E. Cut our annual immigration intake to more sensible 					levels and so ease the pressure across Australian society 					and our economy.</p>					<p>There is one thing that you can do about it. Stop giving 					them your primary vote at each election and send them a 					message! The country will not fall apart if we have minority 					governments. It is our democratic institutions like the ATO 					that make Australia a politically stable country. 					Governments come and go but the ATO etc are always there. A 					family member who works for the ATO, will be dilligently 					ensuring that big businesses pay their full share of taxes 					regardless of which party forms government or even 					regardless of how long it takes to form a working government 					after any given election.</p>					<p>The major parties just want you to think that the country 					will fall apart with minority governments because those 					businesses bank rolling them through bribes will no longer 					do so if it becomes clear that the major parties are no 					longer effective at implementing their favours.</p>					<p> </p>					<!--********************************************************************************************************************************************	********************************************************************************************************************************************	End main content	********************************************************************************************************************************************    ********************************************************************************************************************************************-->			    </div>			    			    			    			</div>			    			    <div class="footer">		This Easy Web Store was created by Gregary Boyles.

When the content isn't visible look at the generated source code to see if it's there or not. If it's not there then you'll know the problem is with the script on the server. If it is there then the problem is with how it's being displayed.

 

Check to see if the resulting code is valid HTML: http://validator.w3.org/

Also check your CSS: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

 

There are errors in your CSS and HTML that could be contributing to the problem.

 

You should put all that CSS into an external stylesheet, it would really reduce the amount of code that needs to be downloaded each time the page loads.

One of the errors that the validator shows is more than one occurence of ID NAVMENUITEM.

 

The id Selector

The id selector uses the id attribute of an HTML tag to find the specific element.

An id should be unique within a page, so you should use the id selector when you want to find a single, unique element.

To find an element with a specific id, write a hash character, followed by the id of the element.

 

use a CLASS instead.
