This code works and plays a video in a new window:

<a href="http://southalabamarc.com/Videos/video_smoker.html">

This code use to work on another site but now it just changes the current window to solid white:

<div class="content">
<div id="supermenu">
<ul><!-- start ul 1 -->
<li><a href="index.php?page=home">Home</a></li>
<!-- ===================== Dropdown item # =========================== -->
<li>
	 <a href="#">About us</a>
	 <ul>
		 <li>
			 <a href="index.php?page=club_info">Club info</a>
		 </li>
		 <li>
			 <a href="index.php?page=club_members">Club members</a>
		 </li>
	 </ul>
</li>

	 <!-- ===================== Dropdown item #3 =========================== -->
<li>
	 <a href="#">Videos</a>
	 <ul>
		 <li>
			 <a href="index.php?page=video_smoker">Smoker</a>
		 </li>
		 <li>
			 <a href="index.php?page=video_turbine_helicopter">Turbine helicopter</a>
		 </li>
	 </ul>
</li>
</ul><!-- end ul 1 -->
</div>
</div>

This is an abbreviated menu and so if a ul or li is out of place that is not the problem. Everything in the menu works except the videos.
If at first you do not succeed, QUIT, because it becomes too aggravating.

Why is it I don't understand everything I know?

Not sure why I did not get any replies on this one. I beat my brains out on it. Finally I found if I tried to access a .pdf document via the browser address line it worked. If I tried to access a .html file the same way and in the same directory it would not work. Yet if I double clicked on the .html file in my windows directory it also worked.

To make a long story short I called the host and he determined that the permissions was set to 744 and should have been 755. Yet my FTP program showed it was already set to 755. He tested it and said everything was working just fine.

I haven't had time to test it myself. This has scrambled my brain and I need a rest.
