Well, I hope you all are proud! I spent tonight cleaning up my code (I never realized it was that bad… I am still a wee beginner… still am absorbing so much information and really want to one day master all of this
I ran it through that validator and used html tidy and also worked on doing some indentation to match up tags. My tables were very messed up- all that confusion of nesting. But I got it figured out and it does now work in IE, well, it does for me at least!
My questions are now this…
- When I run that validation program… I get this:
I am not sure what to put in for this >< (I did however figure out what I think is the appropriate doctype).
It (this validator) keeps coming up with many errors for what I have in the counter (which is what dreamhost has me code)… why does it do this?
When one is on the page and they go to enter text into the text box… how do I code it so that the text disappears rather than having the user to backspace it to enter in their own text.
What I mean is… I have:
[quote] Do you want text added to your photo?
Enter text to be added to photo here. [/quote]
Thus, a user must backspace the text “Enter text to be added to photo here” in order to put in their own text rather than just clicking and the text automatically disappearing.
