my site only works on certain browsers. on others, it attempts to download. a web developed told me that the problem was my mainframe is pointing to a .com file, when it should be a .html file. i deleted the .com file on my remote host, but all that did was basically delete the home page of the site. i need to point the mainframe to html file so that it may display on all browsers
