Recommended Posts

Hi to all ,This is my first post here , i am not a professional developer so i will be as brief and concise as possible.I have a very simple code only for screen (without Jscripts, JSPs, PHPs etc) but i cannot validate it.I am trying on W3C validator but i keep receiving "Unknown Parse Mode!". No other errors are reported there so i assume that this is it ... obviously. I have tried all valid DTDs but still nothing.Any suggestions ??

Your main problem was that you declared the page as XML on line 1 then on line 2 said it was XHTML 1.1....this was the cause of the "Unknown Parse Mode"...I cleaned up the code a bit for you as well so it would pass validation.
