html page only appear in Firefox

Hi, Alec:

First, sorry about my english...
I'm Revista Teias'online editor (http://www.revistateias.proped.pro.br).

My problem: One of 13 articles published on format "html" only appear in Firefox (lasted version, PC and MacOsX).
If I used IE 6.0, Safari or Opera (both lasted versions), the page in question does'nt appear (without navigation or code error).
I just tried re-formatted the htm page, deleted the record by control panel (and again by table), change this page for another htm with only one word, supress a little css in header page... Nothing!.

The link:
http://www.revistateias.proped.pro.br/i ... ew/229/229
In same volume, the page "Editorial" appears ok in all brownsers: http://www.revistateias.proped.pro.br/i ... ew/216/216

My "create method" in both pages was "copy & paste"...

Best regards,

Hi, everybody:

I just finished this problem: save as another same site htm page and copy & paste all text using the text from "failed" page.
Not a solution, but better... And remains the question: why?

Best regards,

Hi Carlos,

I'm not sure why this would happen; it sounds to me like your web site authoring tool is generating HTML that is not compatible with all browsers. You'll need to compare the broken HTML with the working HTML to see what in particular is causing the problem. OJS basically passes HTML code through unmodified, except for rewriting image tags to use the proper URLs, so I don't think OJS itself is causing the problem.
