We would like to thank you for your invaluable standards and tools available 
to correct HTML code, and giving us a possible credit line that has 
apparently appeared on Google's search engine.

It seems our original inquiry on DocType standards, URI, and Schemas
has really touched off quite a discussion on the Web, and is copied to us.

We have used HTML Tidy to help correct coding and meta tags on our 
web site, <A HREF="http://www.1stdreamworks.com">http://www.1stdreamworks.com</A>.   While the site is not perfect, it 
has undergone refinement and hopefully has a valid DocType from your 

Front Page 2002, while limited isn't a bad learning tool like Composer, 
however, other editors like Dream Weaver, Hot Metal, and Homesite allow for 
better coding especially writing your own by hand.

Apparently, xmlns:version="urn:schemas-microsoft;vml" is an extension added 
by Microsoft, not a standard.  This code will be written though every time if 
you use the art bottom toolbar in FP 2002, for a page <HEAD>, and will be 
placed first on the HTML coded page.  This sequence looks wrong because the 
specified <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC (example) "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 
Transitional//EN" should appear first on all web site pages.    It is 
probably best to insert your own graphics into this section followed by 
inserting a horizontal line to set it off to produce better code.  Correct us 
if we are wrong.

Most web site designers are lucky that most browsers are forgiving and will 
try to render an HTML page by ignoring what they don't understand.  However, 
this produces too much invalid content out there because the browser vendors 
have to be that permissive.

We continue to enjoy reading your emails, and learning about the many 
resources on the world wide web.  See our two pages of educational links that 
are available detailing these resources.  

If you think we could merit linkage to your organization, let us know the 
code or logos.
