non SGML errors . . . lots of them (7 posts)

    When I try to validate http://www.waterstonewildlife.org/journal/ I'm getting a slew of non SGML errors. :mad:

    I have no idea how to fix this as the code looks clean and Tidy
    validates the HTML that's generated. I do my editing in a text editor so shouldn't that clean things up? Does anyone have an idea what's
    going on?

    Many thanks.

    You have some strange encoding going on with your editor. Which editor do you use?

    I use NoteTab - http://www.notetab.com/. Have for years and my code has always validated. This is really bumming me out. Bed time . . .

    Did you figure things out on this? When I run your site against w3c's validator I don't see any problems.

    Yes, the evil characters are gone but it was not my doing. My friend, the server admin, did a search and replace without my even asking!

    But that does not answer the question of how they got there in the first place or how I can prevent it from happening again.

    Now I see that the sidebar the isn't where it's supposed to be in FF! It was working here a while ago so don't know what happened. If it's not one thing, it's another. *bawls*

    Back to the drawing board . . .

    OK. I just did a fresh .zip download, extracted and can see the problem characters in Notepad (but not in NoteTab). Why are they there? I just did a straight 'extract all'. Running XP Pro SP2 patches up-to-date. Do I need to edit configuration somewhere?

    At least I got the sidebar prob fixed . . .

    Go figure . . . I just checked out a test installation I did on another server. It validates perfectly with the evil characters. http://www.eartherdesigns.com/journal/ This makes me think it's a server configuration issue. Does that sound logical?
