Daniel, 

 

            I would also delete the "border="0"" and deal with this in a
style sheet.  This is a depreciated attribute of the img element. Avoiding
the use of depreciated features of W3C is an accessibility checkpoint
(11.2).

Subject: [VE][70] OMITTAG NO error

 

First, let me start by saying thank you to all of the programmers who
continuously offer help. The address to the document I am trying to fix has
not been uploaded to the server. I am still in creation mode. I just
test-as-I-go and this little booger keeps tying me up.

 

Here is the code error I received:

 

Line 12 column 330: end tag for "a" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified.

....nd Official PayPal Seal -->&nbsp;</td>

 

You may have neglected to close an element,

or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with
"/>" instead of ">". 

 

 

 

Info Line 12 column 81: start tag was here.

...."><!-- Begin Official PayPal Seal --><a
href="https://www.paypal.com/us/verif

 

Here is the XHTML I am trying to fix:

 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<title>Untitled Document</title>

<table width="471" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

  <!--DWLayoutTable-->

  <tr>

    <td width="104" height="109" valign="top"><!-- Begin Official PayPal

  </tr>

  <tr>

Error [70]: "end tag for X omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified"
