To use new audio features from HTML 5 elsewhere I changed the site over from XHTML 1.0 Transitional and all seemed to work as planned except, for some reason, the size of the tables used for the carousel shrunk and the associated text disappeared - see http://www.mbonline.co.uk/index2.html
I’m guessing I must have been using Carousel 2 incorrectly for this to happen. Other than stick with XHTML for the home page can anyone suggest where I have gone wrong and how to fix it?
… that’s what I saw as well. But the more interesting question is:
Why? Just by changing <!doctype>?
Usually, doctype doesn’t have any function except validation. It is telling validators what “rules” to check - nothing else. But we are using a software app. And we are using a software app which is taking care of us - creating valid pages (whatever we do) - and is doing a great job btw.
I never thought about this - and never had any (recognizable) issues with it. So does Freeway really break functions or properties? It would entirely be against the spirit of HTML5.
