View Full Version : Resolved Validating xHTML
10-17-2009, 06:17 PM
I'm not new to HTML by any means but I'm having some serious issues with this. I think my problem is that when I began my website I was using deprecated codes and amateur HTML. Now it's all coming back to bite me though. I'm trying to validate my website's XHTML and it's not going to well. I have a plethora of problems going on here and, because I'm awful with HTML apparently, I cannot fix it.
My website is http://vivid-avenue.net and here is the list of errors and what not: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fvivid-avenue.net%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&outline=1&group=0&st=1&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.654
I've worked with validator before and I've it completely validated but apparently I changed some things and I now have problems again. :/ Honestly, I have no idea how to fix most of that. It would be great if someone could help me out and kindly excuse my amateur coding skills. Thanks!

Try fixing one thing at a time, most of the time one thing causes a cascade effect of errors...
For valid (x)HTML, tags must by in lowercase, for instance, you have <SCRIPT..., and it should be <script....
There's an A tag that self closes (/>). That's causing a bunch of errors.
The CENTER tag doesn't exist in (x)HTML, it was deprecated. Instead use CSS, style="text-align:center" in the parent element.
The allowtransparency attribute was deprecated as well... Simply take it out.
Hope this helps!

Thank you very much! I am now validated, I really appreciate that! :) I actually have another question, however, this time it is about validating my CSS. For some reason when I put my URL in the validator, I receive this page: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vivid-avenue.net%2F&profile=css21&usermedium=all&warning=1&lang=en
I have NO idea why this is coming up. :/

Instead of putting in your web site URL, put in your stylesheet URL:
By the way - it's valid! :D see... (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vivid-avenue.net%2Fwordpress%2Fwp-content%2Fthemes%2Fbang%2Fstyle.css&profile=css21&usermedium=all&warning=1&lang=en)

Oh, okay ahha. I validated last night with the input box haha that's why. But thanks, I didn't think of using the URL to my stylesheet. Thanks so much again! :)

Ugh, I seem to have a whole bunch of new errors again in my xhtml because I accidentally did something to my footer. They all seem to be the same thing. Any suggestions on these?

Haha sorry, I was changing some things. I switched some of my pages to Wordpress pages. I'm still working on changing the rest though haha.
