      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

        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 ####

          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?)

                  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.
