You have everything linking to places on your hard drive, for example -

<a href="file:///C:\Documents%20and%20Settings\melissa\Desktop\webs ite\results.htm">RESULTS</a>
You can't link to things in your hard drive. You will need to upload the files and then have something like -

<a href="results.htm">RESULTS</a>

<a href="http://www.lukebeechey.com/results.htm">RESULTS</a>

Also, the links aren't even clickable in FireFox.

Are you using Word to generating your website? I recommend you use a WYSIWYG editor such as Frontpage or Dreamweaver to build your site.

Open up the file in notepad, everytime you find something like '<a href="file:///C:\Documents%20and%20Settings\melissa\Desktop\webs ite\filename.htm">link name</a>' change it to <a href="http://www.lukebeechey.com/filename.htm">link name.</a>
(remember to replace 'filename.htm' with the proper file name and same goes for 'link name'). Then save the file re-upload it, and upload all the other files (results.htm etc. etc.).

I would really recommend redoing the whole page in a program that isn't publisher though.

I also recommend you change your program:) If you don't want to buy Frontpage or Dreamweaver, you can use Nvu from http://www.nvu.com. It's free.
