    My site is www.peawanuck.com and u can see the codes inside the head on the file. It is a draft site. Site works in my puter but not on host site. I called host an they said that it should work but they didnt help further than that!

    my .css files are "sammie and style", both have the same file content and tried them both to no avail???

    What am I doing wrong here?:(

    Your problem is your meta tag:
    HTML:
    <meta name="author" content="sam hunter, peawanuck, polar bear, sutton river />
    You're missing the end quote. Just a tidbit, if you use Firefox and do a view source it color codes things and will show simple HTML syntax errors and allowed me to quickly see your missing quote.

    For My Information

    Will your Firefox tip work for code generated for any type of project? I am doing on online help project and having no end of grief with bad links when I compile, and all the linked files are in the project.

    This may be outside the scope of this thread, but I'm battling with this right now and thought it was worth asking. Thanks.

    No, the tip I gave only applies to HTML syntax issues, not with bad links. There are other tools that will go through and test links in your HTML though, but not sure if they check links to CSS and JavaScript files, usually for checking anchor type links.

    Thanks for your response. I thought I would need an XML checker. Back to the drawing board. :)
