Description junk 2013-07-24 05:03:30 UTC
A previously validated XHTML page that has not been changed is suddenly fielding an error where none was shown previously. 

The error displayed is <style>.style2{color:#fff;font-family:Verdana}.centertable img{border:5px outseā€¦..... etc. etc.

The error results from validator displaying the text of the linked style sheet between validator created <style> and </style> tags when choosing show source instead of the callout for the style sheet.

The actual page reads <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="./css/buttons.css" />

Page header:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">



<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />

	Giordano Signs and Graphics - Banner signs</title>

<meta name="description" content="Pictures and information about our design, manufacture and installation of banners for outdoor 

advertisement" />

<meta name="keywords" content="sign, banners, temporary advertisement, flag banners" />

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="./css/buttons.css" />


Stylesheet header:

/* Generated by KompoZer */

.style2 {
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: Verdana;

.centertable img {
border: 5px outset #206676;
