    W3C validation...error what??

    Hello all,

    When I check a page with the W3C validation service, it gave a list of errors confined to the table in which I embedded a .swf.
    For instance: "Error: there is no attribute "HEIGHT" for this element (in this HTML version)."
    And the same message for "SRC", and "PLUGINSPAGE", and a handful of others. All else in the page (HTML, CSS, Javascript) was okay. So, do I ignore the "errors"? I know those tags have to be there to instruct the browser plugins and all.
    Any thoughts?

    TIA,

    BT

    Are you using <embed>? That tag isn't really a valid tag. If you look at my first post in this thread: http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...threadid=49572 you'll see a way of embedding Flash in a way that will pass validation (it's the second coade example).

    Try this free service :http://www.alpineinternet.com/.docs/pg/drhtml.html - it's much more smarter than good old validator.
