    Hi,

    In the below piece of html, Dreamweaver is saying that the <span class="footlinks"> tag and its Closing </span> tag is "invalid markup becauces they are overlapping or unclosed tags". Does anyone know why?


    <td width="247" valign="top"><br>
    &nbsp;<span class="footsitename">FA Premier</span><br><span class="footlinks">
    <br>
    <li><a href="http://www.fa-premier.com/livenews/whfc/wh23120001.html">Redknapp

    Happy To Take On 'Rejects'....</a> <br></span>

    I've tried viewing the pages in both Netscape and IE and the CSS works fine. Am I ok to leave these tags as they are or are there certain browsers they won't work in???

    Thanks for the help.

    Hello,

    They seem fine to me. Work ok.
    If the Browsers read it right then you have nothing to wory about...I dont think.

    If I read correctly, The problem isn't with CSS. The way you tagged it is correct. Hmm...

    I don't think there's too much to worry about - it sounds like DreamWeaver is interpreting your HTML code to W3C HTML 4.0 (strict) standards. If it displays correctly I wouldn't be too worried at all.
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)
