code too often not accepted

Hello,

Trying hard to get html-pages correct coded, but I have a hard time.
Your program keeps on bashing and at the moment I think its all to do
with interpreting and translation errors. Its nice to say its wrong, but
in its present state you get nowhere. It might be a big help if you can
go from the errpr through the rules on which you based YOUR program.
Saying that its not allowed and that something is missing or wrong while
other often nationalised "papers" do say its allowed keeps us going
nowhere.


to give you an example;
<start>

   1.  Error  Line 52, Column 145: Attribute "SCROLLING" is not a valid
attribute. Did you mean "scrolling"?

      ?load()" BGCOLOR="#EFEBAD" scrolling="no">

      ?

      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. If you received this error when using the <embed> element to
incorporate flash media in a Web page, see the FAQ item on valid flash.

<end>

May be you can explaine what to do here? I'm out of options. On the
Dutch help pages you have to use scroll in the body argument, like <BODY
SCROLL="waarde">. with this I started, but wasn't accepted.


Regards,
Joop
