The homepage for whatever reason is not displaying correctly, completely disregarding the external CSS file that it is linked to. Every other page seems to be working just fine – for example: http://www.adgrouponline.com/redesign/about.htm. However, there was a part of the day when viewing the site on Firefox, the site in it’s entirety was not displaying properly.
Just now I discovered in Safari only, when the URL excludes the www. and reads as http://adgrouponline.com/redesign/index_test.htm it works like gold. The page validates with no errors, I have cleared the cache in both browsers, and have even reset the router to see if there was an issue within. Nothing. I am completely stumped guys.
Here’s the code:

I’m looking at this now for you, but just FYI, the homepage is broken for me with or without the WWW.
First question I would have for you is…did you double/triple/quadruple check the file paths. On the surface, I don’t see any reason for this at the moment.
Beautiful redesign, btw.
Edit – Also, I would just re-save another page that is working and then manually import the home page content section by section…that way you can see what part (if any) of the code is causing this.
Hopefully you didn’t put too much time into trying to help me out on this one, as right after I made the post I did a bit more research of my own. I really appreciate the help AND the compliment!
Turns out it was an encoding issue. Somehow while I was working in Coda, I accidentally converted the file to UTF-16 while at the same time declaring in the meta that the page was Unicode UTF-8, thus causing my problem.
I will definitely look into familiarize myself with text encoding so I am not so clueless next time around.
