I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iContact as they probably could assist you..
It might indeed be a good idea to have more cell attributes in css instead of in the page itself..
But is there anyone who can answer my questions and give comments on the iContact site in general perhaps? (Any flaws?)..
On the first two errors listed try removing the / from the end of the tag and see if that doesn't clean up a bunch of issues..
As far as alt tgs, another good reason for meaningful alt tags is in the event that you have visitors that have images turned off for whatever reason on their browsers! It happens... especially older machines, people will turn off images to make them run a bit faster when surfing the web..
Definately go with the suggestion of using css to handle as much of the formatting and attri8butes for the tables as possible... and actually you could probably achive the same look using pure css.. however I know that might be really ambicious..
I did go look at the page... very pretty... like the colors and layout..
Oh, and for the record... I have gotten pages to validate both html and css and still have them look nice..
So it can be done...
You can't use /> for html 4.01 transistional. it is intended for xhtml/xml only. delete all those and more than half the errors will go away..
You can please the validator if you write valid code. it is possible to do almost anything you want and be validated..
Read the valdation thread in this forum to get an idea of what errors come up and how to fix them...
Do I have to end the link with </link> than or just leave it open like meta tags?..
Link doesn't have a closing tag, so yeah, leave it open like the meta's...
Well I have removed the “/”s at the end tags where they shouldn’t be..
But the validator still says it’s not a valid doctype. :/..
It doesn't say "not a valid doctype" it still shows errros that are very fixable. did you read tha tvalidation thread I have in this forum?.
It will show you the errors you are getting and how to fix them...
