Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
Well done karinne, you beat me to it.
Hotaru when designing your iPage website you might want to run things through a validator like.
Or use a html editor that has a tidy feature like 1st page 2000 (free).
Both these will help you eliminate any errors in your coding..
I'm not sure that I bare any relation to giz???do I ???..
Giz is always the first to tell us we have error (or none) in our code with the validator, we need a doctype,......
Don't take this the wrong way giz... we appreciate it! I do anyways!..
Why is it important to have 'clean' code with quotes and whatnot?.
Thanks SO much for all your help, guys. You're amazing...
That way it will render the same in most browsers. also conforms to the w3 standard for web authoring...
Hmmmmmmmmm... the browser conforming is obviously nice. Why the conforming to "w3 standards"? I don't know anything about w3 or web authoring standards... is it some sort of legal issue? Or just a guideline or ?
The "w3 standards" is what most browsers are suppose to conform to. IE, being MS is the lone dog as it was trying to make it's own standard, but here recently it is applying the "w3 standard". which you can find out more here.
I missed this thread while I was away; just in time for a pointer to the last few little [.
] to clear up..
The validator is useful on many levels. Use it to spot:.
- errors in your code like.
- nesting errors like:.
- tags with unsupported attributes, or incorrect attribute values,.
- attributes where the value has not been.
- missing attributes that are required to be present on certain tags,.
- code that is.
- silly typing errors, and so on...
