I did the same thing, Keith - five different web sites consisting of a total 
of 98 pages. I utilized Dave Raggett's utility TIDY, via HTML-KIT, to 
accomplish the transition.

I had exactly the opposite experience as you, Keith - all my pages display 
and function as designed in various iterations and versions of Internet 
Explorer (including version 5.0), Netscape Navigator, Opera, Web-TV, Lynx and 
the Speach/Braille Browsers of a Deafblind Internet friend of mine.
