getting the above error code for this web page:

when trying to validate thru firefox.

Do i need to add a </META> to theend of line 6?

Any insights welcome :slight_smile:

The META is an ‘empty element’ thus it would take the form of <meta /> and the attributes are in lowercase for XHTML. Usually it helps if you at-least attempt to read actual XHTML Recommendation (it’s not big) before trying to guess the differences; it would have saved you time in the long-run.

Thank you for your replies :slight_smile:

Another prime example of why you should not use XHTML unless you know exactly what you are doing (or even if you do)…

are you even reading responses or you feel like giving us homework? :slight_smile: you really should catch up with those other recent posts you’ve placed here !

first, lowercase. then, self closing tags. why? because xhtml. why? read the sticky! :cool:
