Hi Alien13:

As with all things, it is a start. LOL

HTML Tidy reported 107 warnings and a validattion check listed a lot of serious errors...72 according to the w3c.org validator. Might check out the validation yourself and it will list what corrections you need to make to your code:

The W3C Markup Validation Service.

Use of the Extended Interface or Extended File Upload options is recommended. Make sure "Show Source" box is checked before validating.

Let me know if you need further help with this.

from xhtml1.0 on, every image element has to have the "alt" attribute- it's the text that shows when u put ur cursor over an image. if u don't want any text to show up, just put alt="" for example <img src="blabl.gif" alt=""> that would be the apsolute minimum for using the img element

Hi:

Hey, you're doing much better. Just a few more corrections and you should have it.

You need a <!DOCTYPE> tag at the top and outside your <html> tag. Use this for now:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR...ml4/loose.dtd">

You should also use the <title></title> tags with the title you wish to use. Makes search engines happy. There are some <meta> tags you need to include for content description and keywords.

One other important one is the character set call out. I use:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

The title and meta tags go between the <head></head> tags. Here are the others:

<meta name="description" content="">
<meta name="keywords" content="">
<meta name="author" content="">

You will probably find a lot of errors disappear when you make the right correction. After you've put these in and rechecked validation. We can look at what else you need to do.

Ok, thanks, well i put them in and now im down to 63 errors.

With things like :

Line 43, column 16: document type does not allow element "TR" here .

<tr valign="top">


What is it asking me to do?

[edit] i just looked at my page and its mixed up... what did i do...?
[edit2] i went and had a look and took out "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR...l4/loose.dtd">" and it went back to normal..?

This is what a basic HTML document should look like before you do much with it:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR...ml4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title></title>
<meta name="description" content="">
<meta name="keywords" content="">
<meta name="author" content="">
</head>
<body>

CONTENT HERE

</body>
</html>
