I need help validating my menu.phphttp://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&am....com%2Fmenu.phpthat is the information from my menu file and it says I have 43 errors, I know that my menu works wonderfully however I cannot fix the errors. what is the other way to strict to a different one that will help me fix my errors? On my other files it says when I do this type of coding

<p>text</p>

it marks it as a error.I converted all my files into XHTML from HTML by hand and everything is working great, but it says I have well over 40 errors on some of my pages. so is there a "loose" DOCTYPE or something?

Try using the DOCTYPE that is:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

That is similar to HTML 4.01 Transitional and HTML 3.2Also, you are missing some end tags on your <div> boxes. Be sure to check those. Oh, and onMouseOut needs to be onmouseout, same with onmouseover.

Well since you are using XHTML, you'd naturally expect to get validation errors especially when you start using depreciated elements and attributes. <font> isn't in XHTML, which accounts for the majority of your problems, simply by sheer volume. One of your size attributes has extra whitespace where you put " 3" and it should just be "3", but that would go away if you actually took away the <font> tag it is in. Same with one of your face attributes, it's " Arial" instead of "Arial". Same goes for the width error and the bgcolor error.

Actually, <font> is permitted in XHTML, but only XHTML transitional. I don't know about bgcolor though, you many want to change that to style="background-color:#e6e6e6".For width, you should also use CSS. Same with <font>, it's a huge one, but at least it is still valid in Transitional. :)

Barthayn's going for XHTML Strict, which is what I meant to say. Didn't means to spread the misconception that <font> does not work just in XHTML general. In fact, Strict is the only thing that will reject it. But on the basis of practice, you shouldn't even need <font> if you're using CSS, which is the case here. It's such a superfluous thing.
