Seem to be having a little 'issue' with the validator and wanted to see if
anyone had any ideas/solutions.

I have a TEXTAREA tag which is filled with HTML code for people to
copy-and-paste. The problem seems to be that the validator (using 4.01
Trans. DTD) doesn't like the FORM element placed inside the TEXAREA element
(at least that the best clue I can come up after reading the 'explanation').

I have tried replacing the TEXTAREA tag with a DIV but still get the same
results (and made sure the previous FORM tag on the same page is closed,

Kind of at a loss as to what may be causing the validator to Kerchunk on
this one tag.


(the page in reference is http://www.marcdavidjohnson.com/weatherpage.asp --
it's the code in the textarea at the bottom)
