My 1st question is: Who offers the best iPage web host reseller packages? Hoping for any answer. My other question... I have a menu bar, actually two for testing purposes, but they both show the menu items way below the menu bar so that I can't get to the items since the menus close when you move the mouse off. What's up with that? I think it is a problem with a <div> tag but I can't figure out which one or what the problem is. Any ideas? Here is the page:.

Http://64.62.141.145/menutest4.htm.

Its a bit of a mess right now but this is just for testing..

P.S. Is there an easier/less bulky way to get the same kind of menus? This adds about 20k to each page!..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Fixed one instance of this..

What page are you looking at. There are no style tags on this page. The CSS is in an external file..

Again there are no unnecessary "&" signs in any of the URLs. Can you show me an example from this page?.

Http://64.62.141.145/menutest4.htm.

There are no alt tags missing. Did you look at the page or just submit ti to the validator as I would have when I am finished messing about. As I said this page is not yet ready to go on-line..

They are. I am curious as to which CSS you are referring to here since all my "Numbers" have units associated with them..

The above items you mention are not a problem with this page and even if they were would have very little to do with the problem I was experiencing. However, the point is moot since I have changed the menu and now have it figured out..

The new menu.

I simply used "AllWebMenus" and have had no trouble as well as getting the file size down to a minimum. Thanks for your help anyway..

BTW I would refrain from using the validators on people's pages and simply publishing the results here. Anyone can use them. Everyone does. And they do not tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. They are useful to find minor problems but relying on them to fix a page is not usually a good idea. But thanks for your help anyway...

I'm not sure why you believe that those errors are not on your page. They are. They are shown by clicking the two links in the message above, repeated again here: [.

You have changed something on your page, so the CSS validator just pukes completely now. Before this, it was saying that there were no units of measure stated for three of your CSS entries; ".

I see what you are talking about now. I was looking at my code. Every error that you mention is in automatically generated copyrighted code from applications which supply the code to use ("PHPLive", "csRecommend", "GuestMap"). I assumed they were correct and didn't look at them..

However, to comply with your suggestions I have removed the style tag (don't know where to put it since I already have a style sheet linked to this page so I just deleted that style tag.) It seems to work fine (as it did before). I have also added type="text/javascript" to two of the tags within this code..

I have also changed the "&" in the URLs which are also contained with in these same auto generated copyrighted code..

I am surprised that this code is incorrectly generated. I never questioned it since they know a lot more than me..

Just because the company is big, well-known, reputable, or whatever label you might wish to apply to them, you shouldn't ever assume that they actually employ people who have any idea what they are doing!.

Maybe you could write to them (as a concerned surfer) to tell them that their code sucks?.

Your [.

Are you telling me that you cannot reach all of the other [.
