    Stupid Computer...

    I just spent 3 hours working on a login in form issue. At the end of the day - the issue was stupid me had given two HTML elements the same ID.

    Stupid computer...

    (Stupid browsers being the super hero and not acting like anything is wrong instead of throwing a code validation error).

    Anyone got any favorite stupid computer stories?

    lol, yeah I've been there. Nothing comes to mind at this time though.
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.

    I have the Tshirt for the same mistake and now program using the following which shows shows errors and warnings:

    PHP Code:
    1. Use this in your header
        
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" 
           "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"
    >
         <
    html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"  lang="en" xml:lang="en">

    2. Use Firefox Addon:
