View Full Version : Html Errors
01-05-2005, 09:17 AM
Is there such a thing as an HTML error identifier program? I am having a hard time finding the errors on my page. Displayed in Firefox my website looks the way it should, but in IE the table border is showing, the table takes up the whole screen, and every little error I make screws up the page in weird ways. Any suggestions would be helpful. Take a quick look at the page source and see if I am doing anything obviously wrong.

As far as the code goes. You can use the html validator (http://validator.w3.org/). But I'm afraid it wouldn't be close with the table cel back ground colors. You could get the same with css and have it validate.
Do you write in notepad or are you using an editor?
Maybe start with <TABLE BORDER=”0” WIDTH=”80%” FRAME="void"> to
<table width="80%" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">

Hey, thanks for the link. It will be very helpful.
Yeah, I upgraded the Body tags. It seems that IE does not like "" and prefers pixel commands instead of %.

IE doesn't struggle with %'s. I was looking at your quotations which render differently in notepad than my keyboard quotations.
Ex: In <TABLE BORDER=”0” WIDTH=”80%” FRAME="void"> it's WIDTH=”80%” vs. FRAME="void".

if you use firefox/mozilla, get the html validator extension (http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/) as it'll show you every error on your rendered page. i think it's a must have for any web developer (along with the webdev bar)
