Learning alot for W3C Validation for XHTML April 12, 2006

Posted by lsalama06 in Dreamweaver Tutorial, Issues in Interactive Media.

Ok today is the big validation day for all my webpages for the photogallery site.
Till now the following pages are validated: index, about me, contact me, ecard, gallery

Missing still is demo (will do it once I optimise the video).

But I have learnt alot from the errors that came out in the validation like for instance, XHTML is all lower-case.

But there are some errors which are still considered a puzzle for me….will ask Mark tomorrow or Will what they mean, or if anyone knows what it means I would appreciate if you can explain it to me…such as this error for example:

1-Error Line 69 column 53: there is no attribute “wrap”.

You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the “Strict” document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the “Transitional” document type to get the “target” attribute), or by using vendor proprietary extensions such as “marginheight” (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).
This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for further information.
How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute, (Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, and/or use CSS instead of this attribute.
