I found this site via: stu nicholls website. I hope you will all enjoy me as a member here. I have been developing websites since 1999, mostly with siteexperts.com. I always surf for new ideas which is how I found the CSS/csscreator forum.

My first post pertains to stopping spam; hence I wanted to further intoduce myself as not to be a rude newbie. My homepage is robin-ann.com

I hope to visit again soon.

Thank you Tongue

I am new on CSS Forum

Welcome, although I'm so new here I haven't yet properly introduced myself so I don't know -- is that a faux pas?

How's Boston? I left there in July and I'm loving it here in Toronto!

I look forward to us helping each other design better, more optimized sites! For the record, I'm online @ http://www.spectralizer.net/ PMs and emails about my site are always welcome, it's clearly still in the very early stages if you happen to check it out.

This is my .sig... there are many like it, but this one is mine.
My .sig is my best friend... It is my life.
I must master it as I must master my life.
My .sig, without me, is useless... Without my .sig, I am useless.

As a relatively new member myself I can attest to the great help I have recieved from forum mebers already. It is always quick and on the money. Welcome to the forum. I can be found at www.mtju.com, and like many of the members here the site is still very young. i will finish it as soon as I can finish a few projects that have been hanging over my head for some time.
Again welcome.

Only one thing (on my home page) I do not know how to fix... oh great pinapple (and friends), what is the wisdom I seek...?

btw, I have a LOT of validating to do ;o)

I'm not sure what one thing you refer to, maybe because it's past my bedtime Smile

I can say, however, that you'll want to get into the habit of going lowercase for all your markup.

G'night!

The 1 error I was talking about has something to do with favicon.
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
Maybe I've written it incorrectly?

Also, my background sound needs some of a tune-up in the validation sector... I do not ususally use sund on my pages, so this sort of validation is quite foriegn to me. All I know is it works in IE (Shock + Wink

<bgsound id="bgsound_id" LOOP=1 VOLUME="-600" SRC="http://www.robin-ann.com/tunes/camera.wav">

Any suggestions to help validate?

that one will never validate, because:

http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/WD-UAAG10-TECHS-20000507/

section 3.2:
Authors sometimes specify background sounds with the "bgsound" attribute. Note: This attribute is not part of HTML 4.01

but if you want to keep a prorietary code in your site I don't think you'll be keel-hulled for that Tongue

As to the other error, could it be a hidden character causing a problem?

This is my .sig... there are many like it, but this one is mine.

You have two links, one of which is correct—the second. Lose the first.

<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

As to the invalid element, <bgsound>:
The correct markup for the invalid IE code is

 
<!--[if IE]> 
  <bgsound src="alert.wav" /> 
<![endif]-->
Hide the invalid code in a conditional comment (also proprietary, but is valid markup). The sound file belongs in an <object> element;
 
<object type="application/x-wav" 
           data="alert.wav" 
           style="height: 0; visibility: hidden;"> 
        <p>a strange sound</p> 
</object>
Even though IE has gone through two major revisions since html4 (1999), it still doesn't fully support the <object> element.

Make these changes, and you should validate.

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.

Hey,

The validation links you've included in this thread differ from the ones on your website. You'd better recheck those links. The CSS and XHTML 1.0 buttons don't go to the right place.
