I created a custom island (nice feature!) entitled "Useful Links." The html is a list of weblinks.
Here is the code:
$body = <<<EOF
<div align="center"><font color="#0a317c"<a href="http://www.aerobats.com/forums/ubbthreads.php">***</a></div><br>
<a href="http://www.sunriseaviation.com">Sunrise WebSite</a><br>
<a href="http://sunrise.flitestart.com">Sunrise Scheduling Site</a><br>
<a href="http://www.aerobats.com">SoCal Aerobats</a><br>
<a href="http://www.iac36.org">IAC Chapter 36</a></font><br>
<a href="http://www.iac.org">IAC National Org.</a></font>
EOF;
The first link in the list is dead in Internet Explorer on XP and Win 2000. All the rest of the html works OK.
Strangely, all the links show up correctly in Safari and Firefox on a Mac (!).
My workaround has been to create a link that shows up as "***" at the top of the list; For Mac users who click it, the link simply reopens the Forums page. IE users see the "***" as a decorative item and ignore it.

Looks, like you are missing a closing tag in your html:

<div align="center"><font color="#0a317c"<a href="http://www.aerobats.com/forums/ubbthreads.php">***</a></div><br>

That should probably be:

<div align="center"><font color="#0a317c"><a href="http://www.aerobats.com/forums/ubbthreads.php">***</a></div><br>

Thanks for answering. Unfortunately, I can't see a difference between the two lines of code, yours and mine.

'eh it's easy to tell the differance of " and '' (a more valid arguement would have been "" and '', since I don't think youd be using one "), however '' and `` was actually a pain at first lol...
