I am a rank beginner. I have been following instructions in Lloyd book on how to embed css. I entered the following:
But each time I save it in NVU it drops the closing /…and I get this:
The embedded link does not affect the web pages. Is it because the closing slash is not there? And why won’t it include it?
This is the Doctype from a Kompozer file.
<! DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "//W3C// DTD HTML 4.01 // EN “http://www.w3.org//TR/html4/ strict.dtd”>
So the editor has kindly deleted the / for you so that the tag is correct rather than having an error.
HTML does not use / in the end of tags, only XHTML does that.
The closing slash is for use under XHTML. HTML 4 doesn’t require it (and in fact, counts as a syntax error).
What are you using for a DOCTYPE?
