It would help if I could see the source to your page. I tried the link at the bottom of your post ("www"), but that refuses to load.

I will say this, Internet Explorer is much more tolerant of bad code, so it's probably been letting you gt away with a lot of nasty hacks you didn't even know were nasty hacks. Smile

I think is his site (found it in the UNIQUE HITS topic)


and all of your code where needed doesn't have ' or " in some places (the class's is what im looking at...) also why don't you use <span class.. bla?

The W3C doesn't like your site, at all. In other words, it's broken. Badly.

try sites with php and etc also they will say it is not a valid html bs bs because it's not all pure HTML ;D (javascript messes up their validator or w/e also) so...that' doesn't help much you know---

Using PHP doesn't bother the W3C validator at all. It only looks at what the PHP program outputs. Neither does Javascript interfere with the validator.

Improper HTML, which Homer_Simpson's page is littered with, will. The best thing to do is to go through the results of the validator one at a time and fix them, one at a time. Each time, re-run the validator.

The first step is to include a doctype to tell the browser which type of markup (HTML, XHTML, strict, transitional, etc. it's receiving. You'll also want to specify a character encoding.

index.php?module=news

well either way, some errors don't make sense...

Always start with the first errors and work down the list, rechecking it everytime you address one issue. This is done because sometimes errors made early in the code cause errors later on, much as can frequently happen with programs and syntax errors.

The biggest problems are lack of quotes, and broken nesting of elements.

After that there are significant design issues. The page doesn't make nearly enough use of CSS, uses IE-only attributes, and uses deprecated attributes like "height" in the table tag.

Listen to the validator. I can guarantee the W3C knows HTML/CSS/Javascript a hell of a lot better than either you or I.

I use " instead of ' pretty much all the time and the validator doesn't complain to me about it....
