Strict removes the Target attribute from links, not sure what else. Aha! DuckDuckGo is my friend: http://www.zvon.org/xxl/xhtmlReference/Output/comparison.html

So, what happens if you use a forbidden attribute? How will you be notified?

You will see the page not validate at the W3C validator, and not much else.

The benefit to creating a valid page is that you remove ambiguity from what you send to to the browser. Meaning, if the browser screws it up, that’s on them, not you.

This is particularly important when you start messing with the page using JavaScript: if you start with a valid page, you remove a layer of possible errors immediately. JavaScript is FAR less forgiving than browsers. Browsers are pretty capable of sorting out the most glaring of errors and showing something on the screen.

Okay, I’ve been having fun with XHTML Strict tonight. :frowning: For the most part, all of my regular FWP pages transitioned from HTML 4.01 Transitional to XHTML 1.0 Strict pretty well.

However, I’m definitely having issues with Perch enabled pages. Here’s one of the errors I’m getting a lot:
Line 4, Column 68: document type does not allow element “meta” here; assuming missing “head” start-tag

It sounds like this error has something to do with where I’m placing the Perch code in the HTML Markup using Crowbar. Currently, the code is in Before , but it sounds like it needs to be someplace else. Here’s the specific Perch code:

I’m also having problems with tables. Specifically cell height. All kinds of weird table formatting issues. I ended up going back to HTML 4.01 Traditional until I find out what’s going on.

I’m also getting errors with Carousel text tabs.

Line 337, Column 270: ID “text_tab_buried” already defined
…="#buried" style=“cursor:pointer” id=“text_tab_buried”>Buried | <a href="#…

Yes, this code must go inside the head, so choose either After or Before from the HTML Markup dialog.

You likely have more than one tab set to link to the “buried” pane. That’s what this error says – IDs have to be unique in the page.

All of my tabs do have unique names, like tab2a, tab2b, tab2c, etc. However, the text in those tabs is the same (i.e. Traditional, Jewish, Value), which they kinda have to be. Please see here: http://www.williamsburgmemorialpark.com/properties/burial.html

Is there more than one tab pointed at the same pane of the carousel?

Yes, but every tab has a unique identifier.

The identifier is being set by the Action to match the name of the carousel and the name of the pane, joined with a _. This is my doing, and the only way to get away from it is to only have one text tab per pane for the time being. I can fix this, but it will be a patch to the Action.

No worries Walter. I can wait for the next update to the action. Thanks for your help.
