  1. Thanks so much Andrea! Is my code ok??
  2. Thanks for your reply Ben I inserted <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> I tested it on 4 browsers. Seems to work fine. My next question is, do I only copy this code into the 1st page of my site or all 5 pages? Same question applies to the keywords Thanks again
  3. I just did another search on doctypes and found DOCTYPE declarations are technically optional, and not using one does not cause an error; for example, you can create a Web page without a DOCTYPE declaration, and Microsoft® Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla, and Opera may all render the page as you intended. However, as your Web pages become more complex, lack of a DOCTYPE declaration can cause pages to render differently than expected or desired. (This is sometimes referred to as "quirks mode.") So if my webpage appears fine on most browsers, I should forget the doctype??
  4. Thanks Symphlion. Line 82. How do I fix this? I haven't a clue?? I found this while searching for a html 4.01 strict doctype: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> In fact I found a lot of different versions. Why are there so many? Sorry I have no clue when it comes to code. Will this doctype work? When I did a code validation in had warnings. I really appreciate the help!!
  5. Hi, I copied the HTML 4.01 Strict doctype from here http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html and I did a code validation and got this error :Line 82, Column 3: "DOCTYPE" declaration not allowed in instance<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/s… Please help!! I have no idea what to do to fix this issue as I am a beginner Many thanks ps my site is www.literalconcepts.com
  6. thanks so much for the reply! I really appreciate it
  7. Thanks Wickham. Your info is invluable to me. I want to udnerstand something a little more clearly. Even though my site www.literalconcepts.com can be viewed on the net, I still have to enter the doctype as mentioned above? This is for?? As for the style sheet mentioned, do I need this if the site is able to be viewed the way I like?? And finally the header that they mention. What do I enter for the header?? Thanks so much for the info. Much appreciated!! Russell
  8. This is my 1st post here. I built a site literalconcepts.com via Coffeecup (an HTML editor) I am at the last leg of the site configurations and it is asking for a header. In fact this is the message: Header Certain information, such as links to custom style sheets, JavaScript, DOCTYPEs, etc. are placed in the <head> section of a webpage. What exactly are they looking for? Please be as specific as all possible as I am a bit technically challenged. Thanks in advance, Russell
