5169Re: [NH] non SGML errors . . . lot's of them
- Jun 3, 2005Thanks for the suggestion Jody. The problem is that NoteTab isn't
seeing them! I have been wroking with the files as usual and wasn't
aware anything was amiss until I tried validation.
Bit as I responded earlier. An install on another server - same
template, same files validated without a problem. That makes me think
it's a server configuration issue - Mac vs PC RedHat.
Any suggestions on that front?
