    Exclamation Form Problem, Can't Select

    I have a form that works only certain times and it is hard to explain. On my computer, the form works with IE but not Firefox. On a coworkers computer, it works in neither browser. The problem with the form is that when it does not work, I can't click the buttons or even select the forms so I can type in them. Has anyone had similar problems before? It should be noted that I have background images for all parts of the form, if that matters.

    It's Dreamweaver. That doesn't make you less correct, but it explains the spaghetti code, anyway.

    What do you mean by unnecessary tags?

    He probably means those he listed: duplicate doctypes, html, body.

    You have several errors.

    That might be because I have php requires combining the header with the rest of the page. Should I delete those on the header so that they don't appear as doubles?

    I tinkered around with the form and I can't seem to figure out why I can't select the text field or the buttons on Firefox but it works on IE. I removed the background image and saw the text field, and still could not click it. I'm not sure exactly what could possibly be wrong that would cause this.

    You still have several validation issues. You did get all of that cruft code removed, so that's a big move in the right direction.

    There's some layer still stuck over the top. I poked around deleting various elements though Firebug, but didn't come up with anything quickly. Try fixing up the validation problems and see what happens from there.

    Unsolicited advice: once you're finished with this project, delete Dreamweaver. Or, perhaps, learn how to write the code before going back to it so you can understand when it's taking a dump on you (as in this case). I'll bet you could have saved yourself several days of dev time with straight hand-coding.

    Thanks for the help. I'm having some troubles finding out what a lot of these validation errors mean, though. Am I closing tags incorrectly or what seems to be the problem?

    That can be part of it. The first error on the current list is exactly that. It even shows how to fix the problem.

    The thing with the validator results is to start at the top, fix, and then re-validate. Often, a small error at the top causes a cascade of fake errors. I don't think that's the case with all of yours, but perhaps a few will vanish after you fix up the topmost errors.

    Hello,

    Make sure that the block of code that is in your HTML code works for both IE and Firefox. In other words, make sure that you have embedded code for it to work on these major browsers.

    Isn't that what he's already said he's trying to do? Are you just link spamming or did I miss something?

    EDIT: Nevermind. I just read the rest of your posts to confirm that you are a spammer.
