    HI,
    Just got this rerror from W3.org. validation

    "Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 190, 195, 248"

    It can not show me the source code but where do I find the page that it is refering to? my site consists of an header page and indexm, footer, etc but how do I find line 190 what page will that be on.

    Thanks very mcuh for any help

    the w3 validator can only validate the html output of your PHP scripts. so it's referring to your blog itself. you'd have to look at your blog in a browser, view the source, and find line 190, to see what the validator sees.

    The problem is that your text isn't valid UTF-8. Try copying the HTML of those posts from your Admin interface to Notepad and back, and see if that fixes it

    If I force the validator to use iso-8859 as a workaround, you'll see a lot more validation errors by the way.

    Thanks Both for your help and the excellent and informative reply. I don't think I am quite ready for WordPress.

    I have since deleted all posts but the error still remains, do you have any other suggestions.

    Thanks very much

    There are some weird characters embedded in your source. Try deleting these pieces, and then manually write them again, to see if that fixes the problem:
