  <br>We're looking at going to NoBeBoSco July 30th thru August
5th.  NoBe is a great place to go for getting some merit badges, like
swimming, first aid and camping, completed.  Boys who are going to camp

Rodney in August can go to NoBe first to complete the small boat
sailing merit
badge.  I know it's early but please reply via email if you think you
be interested.  We also need to have 2 adults with the scouts during
week.  How many adults are able to help out?  We can split the week
and you can stay at camp for 3 to 4 nights<br><br><br>Eagle

Post the URL not all your markup.

Who knows, this is not proper markup but a hodge-podge cut and paste of
bits for what looks like MS Word's efforts to create markup. Contrary to
what MS says, MS Word does not do web pages.

Take care,

You didn't provide us with the CSS.  But I suspect there's
"text-transform: lowercase;" hidden away in there somewhere.

You might want to get rid of this at the bottom of the page too.  In
Firefox it appears half way down the page.

XHTML MUST be lowercase.  Maybe the browser is doing as it should and
ignoring all invalid markup?  Of which you have plenty.  Next time,
please post an url instead of markup.
