Post your question to a community of 469,270 developers. It's quick & easy.

Please help fix the code here

I *almost* have a tribute slideshow done for my late pet cat, found dead the
same day I finally found a place to rent where I could keep her. There are a
few minor errors that I don't know how to fix yet. If anyone could take a
look and drop me some hints, I'd be most grateful.
I hope I'm not posting this inappropriately or to the wrong newsgroup.

The page, such as it is, is at
http://www.TheBicyclingGuitarist.net...t/20060206.htm

The following errors are from the wdg validator:
a.. Line 59, character 138:
.... "+destext[thenum]+"</textarea></form>");
^Error: end tag for element TEXTAREA which
is not open; try removing the end tag or check for improper nesting of
elements

I see only a blank white page.

Oh. JavaScript is needed to see any content. Hopefully, I will be able
to have my corporate firewall unblock that.

Why are you displaying the captions in a textarea in a form? Why not
simply display them in a centered <p>aragraph or <div?

How about adding a <noscriptsection to advise the ~10% of visitors who
do not have JavaScript available or disabled?

thank you for your tips...I just threw this up, that's why it is so
barfy.

I *don't* know what I'm doing with Javascript, but heard it was a
little more accessible than Flash for presenting a slideshow of
images. I am in mourning for a lost family pet, and still in the
process of moving into the house, so I'm basically toast mentally and
physically and emotionally right now. Guess which side of me falls to
the carpet...the butt-er side of course!

You need to mark your embedded JavaScript as CDATA, or, better still move
it out to a separate file.

The Conservative Party now has the support of a smaller proportion of
the electorate in Scotland than Sinn Fein have in Northern Ireland.

If so, I have a copy of brucie's slideshow script which works extremely
well and does not rely on any client-side stuff.
I don't know for sure, but php sounds familiar...I've had the same web host
for seven years now and they have been very patient with me. It does suck
that they use windows servers...

Oh. Windows servers. Unless they are a full-fledged host, chances of
finding PHP would be somewhat remote.

There may be ASP, though...

Not necessarily true. Most windows hosts I've run across have PHP, ASP,
and ASP.net running. Of course, you can't mix PHP and ASP on the same
page, but you can have an ASP and a PHP page on the same server/web
space.

Probably.

Probably.

Oh there's definitely ASP, because my contact form is one (I get a LOT of
spam trying to get me to buy generICK medicines). You guys are the experts
compared to me by far. Please, what should I do if I want a simple image
slideshow, no captions, as EASY to make and use as possible AND be standards
compliant?

Thanks

Ty Simon. That's stuff I don't know about yet, but I appreciate your telling
me. Others have suggested alternate methods that might be easier for my
level of knowledge at this time. Thanks again and have a great day.
