I need help. A lot of these error don't make sense to me. I need specific codes and to be told in plain english or for a dumbie like me to fix it. Can you please help?

Here is my results.

Help on the options is available.

No Character Encoding Found! Falling back to UTF-8.

I was not able to extract a character encoding labeling from any of the valid sources for such information. Without encoding information it is impossible to reliably validate the document. I'm falling back to the "UTF-8" encoding and will attempt to perform the validation, but this is likely to fail for all non-trivial documents.

So what should I do? Tell me more...

No DOCTYPE Found! Falling Back to HTML 4.01 Transitional

A DOCTYPE Declaration is mandatory for most current markup languages and without one it is impossible to reliably validate this document. I am falling back to "HTML 4.01 Transitional" and will attempt to validate the document anyway, but this is very likely to produce spurious error messages for most non-trivial documents.

So what should I do? Tell me more...

DOCTYPE Fallback in effect!

The DOCTYPE Declaration in your document was not recognized. This probably means that the Formal Public Identifier contains a spelling error, or that the Declaration is not using correct syntax. Validation has been performed using a default "fallback" Document Type Definition that closely resembles HTML 4.01 Transitional, but the document will not be Valid until you have corrected the problem with the DOCTYPE Declaration.

This page is not Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional!

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser.

  1. Line 1, column 0: no document type declaration; implying "<!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM>"


    The checked page did not contain a document type ("DOCTYPE") declaration. The Validator has tried to validate with the HTML 4.01 Transitional DTD, but this is quite likely to be incorrect and will generate a large number of incorrect error messages. It is highly recommended that you insert the proper DOCTYPE declaration in your document -- instructions for doing this are given above -- and it is necessary to have this declaration before the page can be declared to be valid.

  2. Line 3, column 2: "DOCTYPE" declaration not allowed in instance

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

  3. Line 6, column 16: there is no attribute "TOPMARGIN"

    <body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" bottommargin="0" rightmargin="0">

    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.

  4. Line 6, column 31: there is no attribute "LEFTMARGIN"

    <body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" bottommargin="0" rightmargin="0">

  5. Line 6, column 48: there is no attribute "BOTTOMMARGIN"

    <body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" bottommargin="0" rightmargin="0">

  6. Line 6, column 64: there is no attribute "RIGHTMARGIN"

    ...rgin="0" leftmargin="0" bottommargin="0" rightmargin="0">

  7. Line 8, column 22: document type does not allow element "STYLE" here

    <style type="text/css">{ }

    The element named above was found in a context where it is not allowed. This could mean that you have incorrectly nested elements -- such as a "style" element in the "body" section instead of inside "head" -- or two elements that overlap (which is not allowed).

    One common cause for this error is the use of XHTML syntax in HTML documents. Due to HTML's rules of implicitly closed elements, this error can create cascading effects. For instance, using XHTML's "self-closing" tags for "meta" and "link" in the "head" section of a HTML document may cause the parser to infer the end of the "head" section and the beginning of the "body" section (where "link" and "meta" are not allowed; hence the reported error).

  8. Line 159, column 6: end tag for element "HEAD" which is not open


    The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed element (if you have an error related to an element being used where it is not allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case this error will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem.

    If this error occured in a script section of your document, you should probably read this FAQ entry.

  9. Line 160, column 5: document type does not allow element "BODY" here


  10. Line 163, column 62: required attribute "ALT" not specified


    The attribute given above is required for an element that you've used, but you have omitted it. For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document types the "type" attribute is required on the "script" element and the "alt" attribute is required for the "img" element.

    Typical values for type are type="text/css" for <style> and type="text/javascript" for <script>.
