HTML Closed Tags in Red

Q: HTML Closed Tags in Red

Hi, all.
 
I hope this is the correct area for this. My previous thread was moved, despite me not being in a business and it being an alternative programme I was using.
 
Anyway, I have some HTML code I would like someone to have a look at for me. It is telling me </BODY> and </HTML> are in error. I looked carefully and saw one of the blockquote tags is in red. I tried using paragraph tags inside this particular quote block to no avail. I also used "</BR>" and "< /BR>" which also didn't help. (Someone told me the space is required in the break tag, which doesn't make sense to me. It shows them in red, so I went back to using "<BR>" instead.)

Preferred Solution: HTML Closed Tags in Red

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: HTML Closed Tags in Red

Try adding this line at the very top of the page just before the opening HTML tag. This is a document type definition. The error may be caused because this is missing. The way it is now whatever is validating this html would assume it's HTML5. Some of the html tags in the document are no longer part of of the current HTML specification. Adding this statement tells the validator that the page is HTML 4.01.

Basically it has an input box for a date and a submit button, the site then sends you to the relevant page.

How do I duplicate what the <FORM> tags do on that site in my VB program?
In other words how do I send a date (or any data) to the targeted script via VB?

I previously used Firefox, but had some problems connecting to a couple of my favourite websites. They'd just be interminably slow to open and it became a huge annoyance.

So I recently installed Opera 10 and am just getting to grips with it, fixing some annoying defaults (like Password Manager).
I've come across a couple of niggles, and wonder if anyone here can help.

First problem occurs when posting / editing / quoting messages on internet forums. In Internet Explorer and in Firefox, I can see rendered images, smilies and text formatting as I'm writing. I can use CTRL + B to bold etc.
Using Opera, images don't appear - I just see the image's address inside [ IMG ] [ /IMG ] HTML tags. Smilies and text formatting, the same.

This means I have to Preview messages to make sure things look as I intend them to. This is awkward when there's a lot of formatting in a message.
Is there a way to make Opera show images and formatting in forum posts whilst I'm editing, not just after I've posted?
The second issue is to do with the wee icons next to my bookmarks. I have everything checked under Delete Private Data, but unfortunately this deletes the bookmark icons too.
I'm wondering if I uncheck "Clear bookmark visited time" if this would retain the icons? And what exactly is "bookmark visited time"? I don't want to retain any sort of log of when I or other users of the PC visited particular websites, especially ... Read more

Hello.

I haven't worked with Word scripts before and don't really know if this is possible, but from what I've read it should be.

Basically, I use a plain text editor when I write on my phone on the go, where I use HTML tags to indicate formatting like this:

Normal text <i>text I want italic,</i> some more normal text

Is it possible to create a script that makes words between <i> tags italic and then remove the tags? (same for <b> for bold and <u> for underlined text) and how would I record or write one?

And also, can I use one to remove blank lines?

I use Word 2010
 

A:Word macro to format plain text using HTML tags

I imagine you could write a macro to that checks this and does the appropriate action.

You will however have to establich the codes you will be using.

I don't know if there will be a conflict when you open word and depending upon the layout <i> might be interpreted before the macor runs, but I think it's a aquestion of trial and error,

<i> </i>
<b> </b>

While the laptop is plugged in, closing the lid works properly (in my case, sleeps) and when the lid is subsequently opened it wakes correctly.
If I close the lid while unplugged, the laptop seems to power off hard - the front LED goes out immediately, and when I open the lid the machine boots from cold. The event viewer shows a critical Kernel Power error.
If I close the lid while plugged in, the front LED blinks - I assume this means going to sleep?, but then if I unplug power the machine powers off hard - same reboot and critical error when I open the lid.

Hi all,
My problem started a few weeks ago! I caught a Virus and Dr. Web got rid of it as well as some trojan downloaders that Malwarebytes killed.
The virus ruined my Avast as well as Google Chrome - so I installed Avira and Zone Alarm Firewall as well as ZA Forcefield browser. Avira continues to tell me I have a virus and quarantines it. I contacted Avira and they say it looks like a Zone Alarm problem - I contacted ZA - and am still waiting - I also uploaded these to Avira to be checked for a false positive and have not heard back from them either.
I was wondering - if I still have a problem or if this is a false positive?

A:HTML/Infected.WebPage.Gen HTML script virus

A common attack against the web infrastructure can be the infection of harmless web pages. Some malware changes every HTML file stored on the disc and adds a link (very often an IFrame) to a site hosting malicious code. Other attacks can aim for the web servers and try to insert forwarding to the pages hosted there. The owner of these pages is advised to take them offline. Fix the hole (either on his own PC or on the server), check the pages for infections, clean them and go online again. Infected Web Pages often contain additional Iframe, Object or Script Tags. The Script Tags often contain encrypted Code.Special detection HTML/Infected.WebPage.GenSince Avira is making the detection and you submitted samples, I suggest you wait on a reply from them or follow up by contacting them again with a reminder.See this Avira link for a discussion of a similar report.

I am using Windows XP SP3.

I am trying to add an "edit" action to the .html file type. I have .html associated with Firefox. I go to Tools>Folder Options>File Types> and .html isn't even listed! (Nor is .htm) So I click "New" and add the .html file type. Then I click "Advanced" and fill in the action info and hit "OK". Then I hit "Close".

It doesn't work, and then when I go back into "File Types", html is not listed anymore. Basically, Windows is ignoring my attempts to add the .html file type.

I created the .xxx file type and added actions to open with Firefox and Word. It worked perfectly.

So what is it with the .html file type that Windows won't create it or list it?

Good morning all, (at least here in EST) Im not sure if this is the proper forum, so ill see if it dies here before I try to post somewhere else.
Every Month, i need to send in a report on what i have done here at work (read: justify my existence). It generally takes me about an hour to do. What i would like to do is to create a HTML form, formatted the way they want it, with text boxes/pulldown menus, and fill in my information, and have the completed form either A)saved as an html form without the boxes; IE:the information gets added into the actual html OR B) All the information gets pushed into a word.doc.
Ultimately, i would like to have it save with something like this "Report-{date or month}.html (or doc).

Just switched to windows xp 64 bit edition and everything seems to be working alright until I looked at the properties on an mp3 file and realized that in the "summary" it didn't show everything that it use to like artist, album, track, title...etc. and it just shows track number, title and comments. Did all my id3 tags for all my mp3s get deleted because of this? and is there a simple fix for this or is this just a normal thing for x64?

Hi,
I'm in the process of doing my alt tags. Om my home page I
have 2 roses on the top of the page for decorative purposes.
Should the alt for these roses be: alt="Red Rose">
Thanks,

A:Alt Tags

Well... to be honest. Alt tags are not so usefull. The main functionality, and you won't believe it, is for the search engines to list your page faster.

Alt tags take to long to appear so that a person navigating the web will stop 2 seconds till a box with "red rose" comes up.

Is there a list somewhere that relates WMP's tags and column data with "official" mp3 tags. There appears to be some WMP data elements that are not stored in the mp3 file tags and some mp3 file tags that WMP does not support.

Thanks
 

A:WMP Tags

MWE said:

"official" mp3 tagsClick to expand...

That's the problem, there ain't no such animal. Almost all of the programs that use Mp3 tag data have Artist, Album, Track Name, Track Number, Release Year, Genre and maybe Album Art.

Beyond that each program defines there own 'standards'. That way you get locked in to using their software. I mainly use Musicmatch and it has tags that can't be used by other programs. The same with WMP, Realplayer and others.

To further complicate things there are fields that are stored in a programs database and not in the tags. To differentiate between the two it's good to have a separate tag editor to figure out which fields are stored as tags.

Do Mozilla and Opera not show alt tags? Though my pages seem not to have any problems at all in Netscape with the alt tags and only occasional problems in Internet Explorer, they don't seem to show up at all in Mozilla and Opera
This section of our site has alt tags in it
http://www.clevelandopera.org/tour/educational/flute/index.html
which show up all the time in Netscape and IE, show up during load in mozilla and don't show up in Opera. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for the info in advance.

A:alt tags

Opera is actually using alt tags correctly. Alt tags are supposed to be used as an alternative to an image being displayed.

With images disabled, Opera renders the contents of the ALT attribute as expected, instead of the image. Some browsers show the ALT text whether or not images are disabled. That should be the function of the TITLE attribute, and has caused some confusion on the part of developers. The ALT attribute is an alternative to images, and is not supposed to be displayed when an image is loaded successfully.Click to expand...

In Photo folders, when you click on 'Tag this photo', a list of options (which one has previously typed in, either correctly or not!) appears; How do you delete or alter this list of options? The normal delete procedure has no effect. Will the list become endless?

A:tags for photos

Hello,

I am a bit confused as to where you have tagged this photo. I have uploaded a screenshot (smudged for privacy - sorry it is such a mess) of a common location to tag something. The red square indicates where the tag is. To remove a tag from here, edit the tags and press backspace quite a few times and it is gone. If this is not the location, do tell me.

I recently installed Windows XP Pro SP2 64bit on my new computer, and while transferring audio files from my old computer (XP Home SP3 32bit) the ID3 tags seem to have been lost.

When I open the folder and right click the track properties, all I see are 'Track Number', 'Title', and 'Comments', there are no options to edit Artist, Albums, etc. Not sure what the issue is because I didn't have any 3rd party software installed on my other PC to edit tags, I did it directly in explorer, but now it doesn't seem to be an option.

Audioshell looked like the perfect program, but it is supported on a 64bit OS. :\

Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

are you talking about tags on photo's? If so, then that seems pointless. if you use a program like Windows live photo gallery to tag photo's then you just start typing a Tag to apply to a photo and if it exists you will see it, if not it gets added to the list?

Being new to the whole SEO and SEM world, I do a lot of looking around and such. I recently ran across a couple things I wasn't sure about - so here I am asking for help once again.

Has anyone heard of a new meta tag called aesop?

<meta name=aesop content=links>

It's supposed to be a 'pick one of a half dozen catagories' type of meta tag that will be used in the near future by many search engines.

I ran across several sites that mentioned it, and some said that it was going to become a standard throughout the search engine industry. I did look at aesop.com, and it just looks to me like it's another new 'search engine wanna-be' site, but I've also seen it listed other places. I know that their sql database isn't even on line yet, but if there is going to be a future meta tag that means something to the search engine world - I'd like to know ahead of time.

One article I read here:
http://www.bigmoneymadeeasy.com/articles/article19.html

was one that made me wonder. (yes, bigmoneymadeeasy.com does set off some red flags in my head as far as how valid the info is)

If anyone else has any info, I'd be interested in knowing about it.

Also, the meta tag "key phrases" has been mentioned several times, - anyone with info on this one?
 

A:New Meta tags

If you want information about HTML, go to www.w3.org

The World Wide Web Consortium are the guys who make sure everyone keeps to the same standards when programming for the net. Therefore, they are a lot more reputable when it comes to querys about HTML than "bigmoneymadeeasy" dot com.

My advice? Stick with good old fashioned keywords and descriptions.

Should it read like this, with spaces, for search engines to read:

philosophy, humanities, discussion, forums, art, music, writing

Also....should my meta name description also contain the same words as are listed in the tags?
