I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
I'm not sure whether you're using frames. Your page is down. If you are, use the existing DTD. If not,.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN".
Thanks for your all's help. I found that this DTD works best:.
< !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC.
"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN".
New problem: The iPage site is being hosted at:.
, which is alright, however, they throw in an paragraph following the < /html> tag in the source. It is server generated. I guess it's for the pop-up window that everyone so hates. Anyway, without getting rid of that the validator [.
] will not validate my page [.
The actual URL is:.
A second problem: XHTML isn't that difficult since I already know HTML, however, this validator doesn't like the < hr> tag. If you click on the link above you can read the comment by the validator. I've tried the following two ways of writing also: < hr>< /hr> and < hr /> of which neither worked..
Blue Light Special...huh?..
I haven't actually looked at your page yet, but the Geocities problem should be easy to solve. If you go to.
You will see that you can validate files from your own computer. Even if you should be silly enough to use the Yahoo pagebuilder so that you dont HAVE any files on your computer, you can save the file, remove the extra code, and check it...
OK, first of all. The pop-up window saying:.
"This iPage site was created specifically for IE (Microsoft Internet Explorer) 4.0+.
Which you are not using."?.
No point in validating at all, if you are actually planning this as a one-browser site. And besides, pop-ups are annoying enough. Pop-ups with (geocities') pop-ups? Besides, I was using Explorer 4.0..
I don't think the validator minds <hr>, but then of course I don't know xhtml at all. However "not allowed here" often means a problem elsewhere. I believe the validator objects if you expect a font tag to carry on beyond a <hr> tag...
If I understand it correctly, the switch to xhtml was simply so that the document would validate? That should NOT be neccessary. Enclosed is a html version with correct DTD which does validate as error free. As far as I can tell it gives you an identical page, except for the Microsoft Internet Explorer pop-up, which I removed. After all, this document validates, and can be viewed in just about anything..
By the way, let me say how impressed I am with a forum of this type that allows you to attach files. Amazing!..
