View Full Version : Validation Problems

11-11-2011, 12:51 PM
I am validating my website in W3schools and i get 1 error saying 'Missing xmlns attribute for element html. The value should be: http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'

But when I insert this I get more errors of 24 errors.what is going on?what is this xmlns attribute?

To change it I take my html out and replace it with: html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

what am i doing wrong?

Help is appreciated.

Thank You

It depends on what the new 24 errors are. They maybe because of end tag wrong type.

use <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
