Firefox underlines everything (almost)

Here is a link to the web page in question (Created with Frontpage 2003):

http://member.newsguy.com/~robustus/ATK32Syllabus2005.htm

When I view it in IE, it looks the same as in the Frontpage design window, but
in Firefox, nearly everyting is underlined. Any suggestions? I tried various
Font and Color setting changes in Firefox, and also changed the theme, but there
was no effect.
Thank You,

FYI: You really should only underline item that are links as this can be confusing to your site
visitors.

You need to look at your code in Code view for a opening <U> with no closing </U> tag.

It looks like you've underlined your titles, headings and links......I don't
think it would be doing anything that you haven't told it to do.

From a brief look at your code, and it shows a few stray <u> and </u> tags....I'd
go back through the whole page in Frontpage and take off the underline to the
whole page and then reapply it to everything you want underlined again.

I don't have Firefox so I can't suggest anything else.

Viewing in FF, I see what you mean. I think you need to greatly simplify the
CSS file... it is very long and complicated.

You mean the one named print.css??
It shows as a zero byte file when I open it.

If you look at the code carefully, there is an unterminated underline
element (<u>) early on in the document at about line 41. There doesn't seem
to be an ending </u> associated with this one. Most likely that's what is
happening. IE is actually rather smart at identifiing elements that are
missing their closing tags, which is what IE is probably doing here but
FireFox is rendering things the way you have them in code.

Hope this helps,

I don't believe it was a FrontPage "issue."

You have more <U> tags than </U>

Firefox 1.0 and Netscape 7 are rendering it as you have
coded it. IE and Opera must be guessing what you meant.

A matter of Style: Titles of books were underscored when
using a typewriter for documents that were to be set in
type by a linotype operator who then changed it to italics.
With the advent of word processing on computers, most folks
changed the underscore to italic fonts. Underscore is
commonly used for links.

Unbelieveable! No wonder people say FP generates bloated code!

FrontPage wouldn't have placed the extraneous <U> tags.

First of all, thank you to everyone who replied.
What I did was remove almost all of the underlining, and that seemed
to fix it.
Thanx,
