Thanks for taking the time to read my e-mail.

I am trying to understand what each doctype is, and what is allowed. 
I used the HTML validator http://validator.w3.org/check and got some
errors.  I don't know why I got them.

Here are the errors.

Can you explain them to me, and tell me what I need to do to remedy the issues.

Is there a site that tells me what tags are allowed under what doctype?

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.


Brad

Line 26, column 11: there is no attribute "SRC"

<embed src="F:/Lisa/LisasNavBar.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#6699cc" width="500

You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the
document type you are using does not support that attribute for this
element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict"
document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the
"Transitional" document type to get the "target" attribute), or by
using vendor proprietary extensions such as "marginheight" (this is
usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).

This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in
the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no
supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error
message for further information.

How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute,
(Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both
allowed in the chosen document type, and/or use CSS instead of this
attribute.

You have used the element named above in your document, but the
document type you are using does not define an element of that name.
This error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict" document
type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the
"Frameset" document type to get the "<frameset>" element), or by using
vendor proprietary extensions such as "<spacer>" or "<marquee>" (this
is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).
