8. Getting Help To learn more about HTML and publishing on the world wide 
web, check out some of these online resources available. • TTU Guidelines can be

development of Hypertext Markup Language and other topics relating to the web is: 
http://www.w3.org/ • You will also want to validate your page to check for any 
errors in coding by submitting each page's URL to the validator program at the 
W3C: http://validator.w3.org/ • Information on making web pages more

web directory for a department, organization, or for instructional materials, 
please submit an online form available from the ITS Home Page .. Forms under Web 
Directories http://www.tntech.edu/its/pubs/forms/


The above is from a supplement I very foolishly thought would help me to 
better understand the HTML among other things. I put my trust in something hoping 
for guidance. Instead I received the following string (<html 
xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" 
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">)
you attached it to every one of my webpages and now I can't get rid of it and 
so THANK YOU VERY MUCH now everytime someone opens my Business homepage they 
are welcomed with three miserable pop-up ads THAT WAS REALLY  UP.... You could 
have said that there would be a penalty for using your 
http://validator.w3.org/ 
Which by the way was a great deal of help in explaining how things work and 
what went wrong and why.... For that I say Thank you...I am just relieved that 
the people I passed your FrontPageIntro2002.pdf onto were warned and stopped 
before they too were raped by your "validator"... 
I am an A+ Certified Technician and have been for years. I would have been so 
humiliated if one of my clients were violated in the same way I was. After I 
recommended your FPIntro on the basis of all the info and help I got when I 
activated the "validator" and viewed the results unknowingly to the fact that 
everyone of my webpages were now infected with some pop-ups. I knew nothing 
about them until I accessed my site from a computer that did not have the Google 
toolbar pop-up stopper installed. Now maybe you can tell me how to remove your  
string that has made its home on every one of my pages... I have tried 
deleting, importing, exporting, creating a new homepage, (which I Thank you very 
much for) I figure  it quit trying to solve this total violation of my website 
and just give in and create a whole new  WEBSITE thank you very much  and I will 
not offer any apologies, nor do I want any from you be it my fault or yours I 
don't  care. That is neither here nor there...   just warn potential trusting 
soles in the future that you will in the end completely and utterly without 
any malice viciously violate they're system. 
From San Diego, CA to TampaBay, FL I will without a doubt and this I do 
promise I will spread the word of your wonderful services you provide 

Oh and,
Thank you for your time,
NOW PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO REMOVE YOUR MOTHER FUCKING POP-UP VIOLATION FROM MY 
WEBSITE. I REFUSE TO START ALL OVER AGAIN. I WILL BE SENDING YOU BILL FOR MY 
DOWNTIME..... 
OH AND HAVE A WONDERFUL FUCKING DAY
