Halcyon Holiday Cottages in the New Forest, Southern England.Hi - according
to the validator, I've got the following error:-



a.. Line 15, column 50: there is no attribute "LEFTMARGIN"

....="#000000" link="#CCFFFF" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0"
margin

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.

?

Now I think this may be to do with the fact I've incorrectly specified the
Document type.  However, I'm unsure as to what document type my html should
be.  Can anyone help please?

Many Thanks in advance,

Darren Roberts
Halcyon
