www.undernet.org has both HTML and javascript errors

Post by Frontier »

Hi there :)

Just for letting the webmaster know, the front page on the Undernet home page has quite a few errors.

Javascript error
When one moves the mouse over one of the menu buttons, one is greeted with a dialog window saying "error line 188 - object expected".

HTML errors (copying from CSE HTML validator)
1. Error in line 35: </SCRIPT> tag after the comment tag.

2. Message in line 40 at character 72: (Grouped->Microsoft Internet Explorer) [1] The "leftmargin" and "topmargin" attributes for "BODY" are not HTML or XHTML attributes and are currently only supported by Internet Explorer 2.0+. For instance, Netscape, Opera, and most other browsers do not support these attributes.

3. Error in line 189 at character 913: A quoted string (like an attribute value) cannot be immediately followed by text. It must be followed by a space or by the end of the tag. Is there a missing space character?

4. Warning in line 189 at character 1085: [13] HTML 4.01 and XHTML require that the "alt" attribute be used with the "img" element. The "alt" attribute is critical for accessibility. It lets authors specify equivalent text to serve as content when the image cannot be seen or displayed. Use alt="" when alternate text is not appropriate, such as when images are intended to format a page (such as spacer images).

6. Error in line 248 at character 44: "_new" is not a valid value for the "target" attribute. You probably want "_blank". This value causes the browser to open a new, blank, and unnamed window.

7. Error in line 260 at character 59: "_new" is not a valid value for the "target" attribute. You probably want "_blank". This value causes the browser to open a new, blank, and unnamed window.

8. Error in line 285 at character 7: The end tag for "td" (opened in line 282) should appear before the end tag for "tr" (nesting error).

9. Warning in line 299 at character 6: [13] HTML 4.01 and XHTML require that the "alt" attribute be used with the "img" element. The "alt" attribute is critical for accessibility. It lets authors specify equivalent text to serve as content when the image cannot be seen or displayed. Use alt="" when alternate text is not appropriate, such as when images are intended to format a page (such as spacer images).

10. Message in line 299 at character 6: (Grouped->Good Style) [7] The "height" and "width" attributes should be used with the "img" element. Using these attributes generally result in faster and smoother (less jumpy) rendering. Using them is also considered to be good style.

11. Error in line 307 at character 4: The end tag for "td" (opened in line 278) should appear before the end tag for "tr" (nesting error).

12. Error in line 314 at character 2: The end tag for "td" (opened in line 274) should appear before the end tag for "tr" (nesting error).

13. Error in line 324 at character 6: The "td" element cannot be used here. It is nested in another "td" tag and cannot be nested. Did you forget to close the previous "td" tag? This element may be contained in "tr". This element may not be contained in "td" and "th".

14. Message in line 331 at character 2: (Grouped->General Compatibility) The "table" tag is contained in a "center" tag. Different browsers may render this very differently. For example, Internet Explorer 6.0 may center the table cell content (depending on the DOCTYPE) while Internet Explorer 5.5 does not. However, both will center the table itself. If you want to center the table, then align="center" may be used in the "table" tag.

15. Message in line 334 at character 26: (Grouped->General Compatibility) The "table" tag is contained in a "center" tag. Different browsers may render this very differently. For example, Internet Explorer 6.0 may center the table cell content (depending on the DOCTYPE) while Internet Explorer 5.5 does not. However, both will center the table itself. If you want to center the table, then align="center" may be used in the "table" tag.

16. Error in line 347 at character 67: The end tag for "font" (opened in line 341) should appear before the end tag for "td" (nesting error).

17. Message in line 361 at character 2: (Grouped->General Compatibility) The "table" tag is contained in a "center" tag. Different browsers may render this very differently. For example, Internet Explorer 6.0 may center the table cell content (depending on the DOCTYPE) while Internet Explorer 5.5 does not. However, both will center the table itself. If you want to center the table, then align="center" may be used in the "table" tag.

18. Message in line 364 at character 4: (Grouped->General Compatibility) The "table" tag is contained in a "center" tag. Different browsers may render this very differently. For example, Internet Explorer 6.0 may center the table cell content (depending on the DOCTYPE) while Internet Explorer 5.5 does not. However, both will center the table itself. If you want to center the table, then align="center" may be used in the "table" tag.

19. Error in line 366 at character 34: (Styles->General) The "10" property value contains a number but no label to specify the unit of length (like "in", "cm", or "px"). If this value is a length, then the label should immediately follow the the number except for length values of 0 (zero) which do not need a label. If this value is a percent, then the percent character should immediately follow the number (if percent values are allowed).

20. Error in line 366 at character 34: (Styles->General) The "font-size" property has an invalid value "10". This property must have one of the following values: "inherit", a valid length, a valid percent, a valid absolute size, or a valid relative size.

21. Warning in line 366 at character 66: (Styles->General) It is recommended that a generic font family name be specified as the last font family name. If the preceding font family names are not available then the browser should fall back to the generic font family name. The generic font family names are serif, sans-serif, cursive, fantasy, and monospace. Be sure not to use quotes around generic font family names.

22. Message in line 374 at character 14: (Grouped->General Compatibility) The "table" tag is contained in a "center" tag. Different browsers may render this very differently. For example, Internet Explorer 6.0 may center the table cell content (depending on the DOCTYPE) while Internet Explorer 5.5 does not. However, both will center the table itself.

23. Error in line 376 at character 43: (Styles->General) The "10" property value contains a number but no label to specify the unit of length (like "in", "cm", or "px"). If this value is a length, then the label should immediately follow the the number except for length values of 0 (zero) which do not need a label. If this value is a percent, then the percent character should immediately follow the number (if percent values are allowed).

27. Error in line 392 at character 43: (Styles->General) The "10" property value contains a number but no label to specify the unit of length (like "in", "cm", or "px").

30. Error in line 485 at character 2: The "tr" element cannot be used here. It is nested in another "tr" tag and cannot be nested. Did you forget to close the previous "tr" tag? This element may be contained in "table". This element may not be contained in "tr".

...and the list goes on. I hope this list is valueable to the webmaster...

Eh, this is nothing new, it is like that since ever. As you can see the DTD is HTML 3.2 Final which is pretty old. It should rather be re-coded and XHTML 1.1 valid, instead of HTML 3.2 :-)

Anyway, this is not the correct section for this post, it should be in the "Website feedback" section.


Best Regards,
Mit.

zottona, regarding your sidekick, that is probably a question better asked of your phones supplier, essentially your question is both off topic for this topic, but off-topic for this forum.
