1) Script Title:
Step Carousel Viewer v1.8

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/stepcarousel.htm

3) Describe problem:
<img src="opencircle.png" data-over="graycircle.png" data-select="closedcircle.png" data-moveby="1" />
data-over, data-select and data-moveby

These elements don't validate the HTML (the W3C).
Can't make the paging with a valid code, for example, using css?

Thanks.

Yes, but not without re-writing the whole script. Have fun.

More importantly, does the script work? If so, don't worry too much about validation.

Yes, the script works. But when validation is a requirement of the customer, can't be avoided. Unfortunately so have to use another script, with valid code.

Thankfully, there are other alternatives jQuery plugins.

And this tip is so pro developer of the script, to think that future improvements.

I understand. You can't win, can you? people could either care less that there is even such a concept as "valid code", or they blindly want everything to be "valid" without a care to functionality.

The most important thing is, certainly, functionality. However, combining functionality with valid code is a key differentiator, and as there are alternatives that present this a solution, I will use another script.

Your scripts and tools are very functional. Thanks.

But When I use script generated by Email Riggler tool in my pages, I found many HTML errors like

line xxx column yyy - Error: end tag for "tttttt" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified
If I don't use script I have no errors.

I don't care about it ;)
Simple I want to know Why it happens?

The validator is mistaking script code for HTML code.
