View Full Version : tentatively valid?

11-03-2006, 10:01 PM
i validated my html and i got this:

The uploaded document "metroplex.html" was checked and found to be tentatively valid XHTML 1.0 Strict. This means that with the use of some fallback or override mechanism, we successfully performed a formal validation using an SGML or XML Parser. In other words, the document would validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict if you changed the markup to match the changes we have performed automatically, but it will not be valid until you make these changes.

apparently i need to change the markup... huh? what should i change it too? the doctype i am using is this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

You need a meta content type. Add this in between your head tags somewhere

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
If that doesn't work we need to see the rest of your code.

yes, but most of the time it seperately asks for a meta tag encoding. but i could be wrong. if _aerospace_eng's thing doesn't work then i guesss let us scour your code :D
