Hi,

I have a bullet point problem within some drop down menus please see the page with the problem, it seems to be an li problem with my sdmenu, as I'm still working on it, it might not view correctly in some versions of IE?...

I seem to have sorted out with my CSS, meaning when it works in safair it doesn't in firefox so I now have link for a CSS firefox fix in my header, I've put the link above the IE fixes so it picks this up first, but for some reason its not picking it up and the fixes aren't evident within Firefox???

Can anyone help us out with this, been messing around with it now for the best part of this w/end… If you take a look the follow on text indents two far, but then that should be sorted out if I can some how link the CSS fix??

Thanks,

T

It is highly recommended, if

It is highly recommended, if not required, for you to deal with the validation errors in your HTML.
If you have any questions about your validation, please report back.

xhtml / html ?

Hi,

Do you think that it could be a case of my sdmenu being formatted for html and the li element going in as xhmtl? so some kind of html xhtml conflict like the css: div.sdmenu collapsed as opposed to .collapsed?

Any help please?

Thanks,

With over 50 errors in your

With over 50 errors in your HTML, you're going to be hardpressed to find one of us willing to dig through your code until you take the first initiative and fix up these issues.

They are all explained within the link I posted earlier.
If you have a problem validating, please post back, but until you get these errors worked out, there isn't much we can do for you.

Valid HTML is like a solid foundation to your house, you're not going to build a house on a crushed and crumbling foundation, are you?

I've sorted the problem I

I've sorted the problem I have with the li by putting a ul in, but in the process I've made more errors in the validation check, any chance you can help us understand what i'll need to change to get me going, like:

Line 70, Column 78: required attribute "alt" not specified
…es/logos.gif" width="234" height="98"/>

The attribute given above is required for an element that you've used, but you have omitted it. For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document types the "type" attribute is required on the "script" element and the "alt" attribute is required for the "img" element.

Typical values for type are type="text/css" for and type="text/javascript" for .

Thanks, I have a lot ul's instead of li's to look at something about the closing tags they all nearly have the > symbol in red

Things

Things like

<a><ul><strong>One 2 One Business Solutions can:</strong>
	<li>Network for you, sell your business and services, while you carry on with the important task of running your business"</li>
	<li>Delegate follow up service</li>
	<li>Database management, clean and update</li>
 
	<li>Complete Client Feedback Questionnaires for you</li></ul></a>

what is there an anchor wrapping all that? Remove it.
You cannot have a child of UL that isn't in an LI
Move the line up above the UL and put a paragraph tag around it.

I see you have made this exact same error a hand full of times.

-------

All images are required to have an alt tag. If you there is no reasonable information you can provide, just make an empty one alt="".
When we look at errors, we generally glance over these, they are easy fixes, but will never be the cause of layouts to go weird.

-------

Where you have
Your src= need to have quotes wrapping the contents so it would be

-------

Ampersand (&) should be coded as & to minimize confusion from the browser as to what it is doing floating around.

-------

You fix these errors and you should be well on your way to having valid HTML

you dont need anything

you dont need anything wrapping the unordered list.
a ul is a block level element just like a p or div

Incorrect!
All of the errors you are still getting are fully explained.
You can't have a block element in an inline element. Remove the anchor wrapping your paragraph.

"One 2 One Business Solutions can:" you still have an anchor wrapping your paragraph and ul.

Remove all of those useless wrapping anchor tags.
None of them have any value to reason to be there. Get rid of them all.
