Description Billy Tchekhov 2006-09-20 10:17:18 UTC
The index of my site was validtored and it found 19 missing tags, mainly > and ".
Looking at the code, I found them all right.
What to think ?
Am I missing something ?

Comment 1 Olivier Thereaux 2006-09-21 01:07:28 UTC
The page you mention has many errors, including: 
- a missing opening <script> tag
- an <a> element within the <head>, which is not allowed
- missing alt attribute for <img> element
- etc.

I see nothing in the validator report that looks like a bug. Please take your time to interpret, understand, and fix your document(s), and do not assume to quickly that there is a bug in the validator if there are arrors you do not understand.
