Description Joshua Franco 2006-05-10 04:41:02 UTC
Attempting to validate the site produces the error: Line 112 column 3: end tag for element "P" which is not open.

The element IS open. The code has been checked by 3 different people to be correct and it contains ZERO problems and yet the validator still seems to blindly insist there is a problem. Looking at the parse tree clearly shows that the <p> tag is being improperly read.

The p element cannot contain other block level elements ( see ) so in this case the validator is correct. A possible fix would be to remove the p and change the opening table tag to:

<table class='table center' cellspacing="0">
