    On one particular page the result looks absolutely fine on a PC and on the iPAD via Safari. However, I have been unable to replace the incorrect page used by the shortcut from the iPAD home page. I have deleted and recreated the shortcut (from within Safari) and I have powered the iPAD off/on. Still the incorrectly constructed index page persists via the shortcut.

    I can only assume there is some kind of cache on the iPAD that is failing to clear down properly.

    Any ideas?

    If it's a cache, then going to Settings > Safari and Clear Cookies and Data will fix it. Otherwise I have no idea what is going on.

    Rebooted the server, also left a day and guess what - problem cleared.... Thanks for the hint though, I am betting that is what it was.
