    Yes I read your message. However this problem almost certainly means there is still some white space. This could be because you didn't upload the file in ASCII

      I think with your help, I may have solved it -- I am SO EXCITED!

      My stupid notepad text editor keeps on removing all of the paragraph returns from my code and putting everything on a single line. I can't get it to stop. (I don't know how that space got in there too).

      So with the ////// and // and //// in the code all on a single line, probably everything is being commented out. So the computer doesn't read any of the code.

      Thanks for saving me a week of pure frustration and work! (Or months of my site being down). -

      If this is not the problem, I'll let you know in a few minutes!

        YES !!!

        That was it -- first a space at the end and then the obvious (yet so deeply hidden) fact that notepad's putting all the code on a single line after it is saved screws up the computer -- imagine how many other people are suffering from this glich in notepad.


        By the way can you suggest a simple text editor I could use with php code?

        I used wordpad just now because after fixing it on notepad, it did it again after it was saved (you don't see it until the file is closed and then reopened).

        By the way I recently installed a Dreamweaver trial, and that has possibly been the cause of all my php files (and some others) getting green icons with a tiny d in a green circle (I just noticed this). Then they open in dreamweaver when clicked on from windows explorer.

        Perhaps that has something to do with the notepad problem, but I am not sure.

          Wordpad is ok. I do all my editing on my Linux server with the pico editor.

            It seems to me that IE enjoys spitting this out as the source when the server sends nothing. Try looking at it with another browser next time. I'm not 100% sure of this (perhaps it's PHP's fault instead), but I'd say about 99.9%

            It's been a while since we've encountered this and I don't remember what our testing showed.

            Best wishes,
