STILL attempting to clear up Code
- Validator site says there are 19 errors, and quite frankly, I can't
find them: for example, in a couple places it says a < is missing, but
there is a < already there, another place it says I cant use
BLOCKQUOTE, and in another place it seems to be saying I cant use gold
as a text color...
Latest attempt to clean things up has resulted in lines on homepage
being in a somewhat zigzag position.
Could someone take look at my site & see what they could find?

it's there, but it's in the wrong place, not where the validator expects it
to be. It's a case of what's called improper nesting.
The first error is for this line.

FONT is contained in A, so you must close FONT before you close A. Yours
are overlapping. Try not to think about in what order "tags" come, rather
think about the whole elements (start tag - content - end tag) as a
containers. One element can be contained another one. Like Chinese boxes,
one inside the other, or circles within circles. Then it becomes obvious
where you should put the tags.
> another place it says I cant useYou declare XHTML which, unlike HTML, is case sensitive. All element and
attribute names must be lower case. Or just use HTML.
>and in another place it seems to be saying I cant use goldThere are only 16 named colors that are defined in the spec. For the rest

you have to use hex.
Jody don't want us to talk about HTML on the basic list. If you want more
help, please ask on the HTML list and we'll help you sort it out. :-)
