Dreamweaver CS4 quirk?

Yes I use DW BUT I code everything - I do not use all of it’s menu stuff.

Hence I wouldn’t be driving all of you nuts all of the time with my questions regarding html and css.

So, is there a quirk that if I copy and paste from an html page that something, formatting or hidden content, is save with the new page?

That’s the only thing I can think of as to why, when I paste a new search link into the “saved as” new name html page that when previewed in IE the original search map appears in stead of the new pasted in link search map.

The links work correctly when I paste them into IE8 directly in the address bar, but not when viewed in my html pages.

There’s got to be something quirky going on here. I went to Adobe but no answers.

Ideas ? ? ?


outset is not an attribute src is but more importantly the URL needs to be properly encoded considering it contains a bunch of special characters. Not really a software quirk considering the software has no way reliable way to tell whether you are pasting an encoded URL or not. If all URLs were automatically encoded there would be the possibility of encoding them twice.

“outset is not an attribute” what exactly does this mean?

What defines encoded? I don’t know.

As I stated, the http: etc., URL works perfectly when I paste it directly into an address bar of IE8. Shouldn’t it also work in my html page the same way?

Thanks . . . Rick

The quote after the src=" is very important as this allows the <iframe> mapsearch code below to work. Yea!

However, even though it works now, all of this code is highlighted in yellow, meaning there still is a problem.

It’s got to be IN THE QUOTES!

Am I missing quotes? Should there be closing quotes? What about the opening iframe elements?

I just believe it’s got to be in the quote placement somewhere?

I also get this error . . .No starting tag found for: “html”, or it was closed too many times

As always . . . thanks much.

All those special characters need to be properly encoded specifically < and >. I merely took the URL and passed it through the PHP htmlentities() function to get the proper output.

oddz . . . it worked perfectly.

Questions . . . this code that I have is generated by my MLS (Multiple Listing Service and LPS software) on their computer.

I don’t know PHP and am just learning html, css and javaScript.

I noticed many of these & is that ampersand?

I also noticed a lot of these %, the percent sign.

Does the PHP utility automatically find and correct for these?

How can I, and should I being a neophyte, run code through PHP htmlentities() function to get the proper output. If so, where do I get PHP htmlentities()?

Thanks oddz . . . Rick

OK - I looked up PHP html entities function.

It doesn’t seem like a ready made snippet or application.

Is there a basic example of a method to replace most used characters, ie > or < or space, & etc?

All I know it that oddzs’ transformation of my html code worked very well and I would like to be able to have a small PHP htmlentities function to run my html code through.

Thanks . . . Rick

oddz quoted above “All those special characters need to be properly encoded specifically < and >. I merely took the URL and passed it through the PHP htmlentities() function to get the proper output.”

Can someone provide me with some help on the PHP html entities function()

I will have approximately done for all 16 or 18 different map searches that will need to be run through the PHP htmlentities()!

I searched on the Internet but I can’t find this anywhere.

I kind of understand the theory I think.

Thanks . . . Rick
