Can someone run this link through W3C

http://s214241821.onlinehome.us/stlseo/new/

and let me know what is invalid... maybe it's because I have been staring at it too long or the pain killers I am quite enjoying after a dreadful day of tooth extraction, but I can't seem to figure out what it's complaining about or why.

Thanks!

Is it the Doctype?

I'm thinking it's the doctype. It doesn't seem like a "Frameset" doctype is appropriate for that page.

it will be when I get

it will be when I get finished with it, as I will be using an iframe that auto populates with results from the tools.

guess once i get that code in there, it'll validate.

Well, if i change it to html

Well, if i change it to html 4.01 strict, it validates just fine.

I put the frameset back and put the iframe in

http://s214241821.onlinehome.us/stlseo/new/backlinkchecker.php

it still doesn't validate, giving the same two errors.

According to Web Design in a

According to Web Design in a Nutshell (3rd edition), the Frameset doctypes (both HTML and XHTML) are for a document that uses FRAMESET instead of BODY for it's content.

I'm pretty sure you can use the IFRAME in Transitional or Strict doctypes.

    Is pulling out the javascript the only thing you did?

    EDIT: that's a transitional doctype, and seeing as how I'm not transitioning from anything, i would think this to be an inappropriate doctype.

    Hey Deuce. I never put it

    Hey Deuce. I never put it together that you could still use iframe as long as you were using a frameset doctype. I could have used this in a recent project. Thanks for the ideas. Laughing out loud

    I assumed that's why it was still a valid doctype... still can't figure out why it's not validating the code though... can't see what's it's tripping over. :shrug:

    You're not creating a

    You're not creating a frameset page though are you!

    framesets don't have body tags.

    It's a trans DTD or find another method other than the nasty iframe, I wrote a simple bit of javascript to write out an iframe so that it didn't get read by the validator, of course it's fatal flaw would have been if javascript was disabled so it was a bit of a non-starter.

    Could the object tag not be used? having said that you can't target an object tag.

    Yeah, that totally slipped by me as I haven't considered a frame for so long.

    From http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp

    Quote:
    The Frameset DTD should be used for documents with frames. The Frameset DTD is equal to the Transitional DTD except for the frameset element replaces the body element:

    The iframe is deprecated in

    The iframe is deprecated in strict DTDs, you must use a transitional (xhtml) or loose (html) DTD.

    @Hugo: This is a major holiday weekend in the States. I'm online only as a way of hiding from all the goings on that began Friday PM as relatives arrived, continued Saturday as some went to the lake for water skiing then out for dinner. Today will include visits to 6 Flags for many with barbeque later. If I had a decent wireless enabled laptop, I'd be hiding at Starbucks.

    cheers,

    gary

    If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

    Happy holidays then, and you

    Happy holidays then, and you still have Thanksgiving to come. We have just had our last major long weekend, nothing left until Xmas now Sad

    You want a nice little Mac, connects to anything at will given half the chance, I would find somewhere better than Starbucks to hide out at though Smile

    Yep I mentioned earlier to use a Trans DTD for the Iframe, my little javascript createElement worked well though, now to find a way to block disabling of javascript.

    Ya, not avoiding

    Ya, not avoiding anyone.
    Like Gary said, it's one of them that holidays.
    Spent yesterday at the lake all day jet skiing... those machines will wear your body out.

    I will look into another way besides the iframe, but for now will use the transitional doctype.

    I will probably end up doing some research and just rebuilding these tools instead of using third party tools, don't see it being too complicated.

    Thanks for the insight guys and gal - I will see what I can do from here.

    I've started a new job

    I've started a new job working from a small office and have had to set up my workstation while trying to actually work at the same time, been interesting especially as they're running Vista on the main workstations and we've all been having much fun exclaiming loudly 'where's flipping 'add-remove' programmes", "where's network neighbourhood", "Why won't it let me access... I'm a flaming administrator!" still got to specify lovely Dell 22" widescreen dual monitors Smile Can't find enough apps to fill all the desktop!
