Hi,

when I was validating my xhtml page I was told it validated but given the following warning:

Line 54, column 61: reference not terminated by REFC delimiter

it is with regard to the use of & #8217; (no space of course). what does this exactly mean? am I not sposed to use the above??

thanks

larmyia

unknown validation error...

I got this:

Quote:
If you meant to include an entity that starts with "&", then you should terminate it with ";". Another reason for this error message is that you inadvertently created an entity by failing to escape an "&" character just before this text.

from here:

Helpful? You decide.
