    It s possible that ARV (never used it) was checking with xhtml rules, which require that all tags be in lowercase. If that s the case, the repair is simple! --

          Gracias, rudi!

          Can't believe it! You spotted the one single thing I didn't see. I have to
          tell you I hated using Tidy and got rid of it, preferring to use ARV
          instead. I also checked ARV on line and got the same thing recorded in the
          off line program.

          I had left off the </a> for the very last link as your example with the
          stripped attributes showed. Fixed that, had ARV check it out again, and
          Viola! all is well in html land.

          I knew that page was correct when I first uploaded it, and it floored me to
          see 3 errors! The strange thing ARV does is that it often says "6 errors",
          you fix one, and they all disappear. This time, that anchor was fixed and
          the other 2 disappeared. Why O why, ARV just can't say in plain english
          "you left off an anchor here, dummy" and be done with it!

          At least I'm glad I had the basics right--- just missed a chink in the
          details.

          Many thanks---------Marie

            Hi Marie,

            glad i could help :-)

            sometimes one gets blind for the most obvious mistakes -- although the
            code in the area of question is kind of hard to read:

            ##### 1 line ####
            <td align="center" bgcolor="#A14CCD"><p><font
            color="#FFFFFF"><b> Click on Left "pane topics" <br>for Art

            ##### end line ####

            no wonder you could not find the flaw -- what's wrong with line breaks
            and tabs? ;-)

            why'd you hate using tidy? is "arv" so much better? (what is it anyway?)

            well her dtd is html 4.0 I think the problem may be that you don t close one a href before you start the next one. -- Don Passenger

                    ARV is validating program created by a young, very gifted kid many years ago. There is an on-line program and a download for a desktop program if you choose.

                        Ah, my favorite! ARV is a validator. Tidy, good as it is for its purpose, is not. ARV is a standalone Windows version of the WDG validator and by the same author. I recommend it highly. Not free but fairly priced and paying entitles you to all future upgrades. I don't use it as often now when I'm on ADSL but it saved me many times its own cost when I was on dial-up. You can save projects, something I guess many people see as an advantage over online validation.
