Error = "required attribute 'FOO' not specified"

P: n/a
I get the following error:

"You left off a required attribute of the indicated element. The most
common such omitted attribute is the ALT attribute of the AREA or
IMG element; browsers will typically use these to build a menu equivalent
to your client-side image map if the user has disabled image loading, so
you'll want to use a meaningful value here"

Here's the code:

<script language="JavaScript"
</script>src="http://www.fantafiction.com/smartad/action/adImprScripting.asp?GId=56&amp;TId=1&amp;BSize=0"> </script>

What is wrong here?

Out of personal curiosity, did Frontpage 6 really create the markup in
that page?

Interesting: an entire body (without an end tag) that precedes the <html>
tag and includes such sequences as

<center>
<div align="center">
<center>

and

</tr>
</center>
<center>
</table>
</center>
</div>
</center>

And yet it displays in full in IE6, Firefox, and (almost, except for a top
border on the baby picture) in Netscape 4.7. How about that! How to explain
it?

I don't know but it sure does taste good:

More or less, yes.... Most of it is FrontPage, some is hand coded by me, and some is
hand coded by others (ASP code that is). Looks like a bomb in a HTML factory. ;-)
And it's taking me forever to clean up each page, but I'm getting there. :-)

The wonders of SSI. ;-) Here is the actual code (minus some asp before the <html>.

---Start Code---
<!-- #include virtual="header.inc" -->
<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 6.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>FantaFiction - Main Page</title>
<style fprolloverstyle>A:hover {color: #000080}
</style>
</head>

<body stylesrc="main.htm">
---End Code---

I made it before I found out that the SSI didn't _have_ to go on the top of the page,
before everything else. ;-)

The "extra chunky" bit is a nice touch.

I didn't think "condensed" was appropriate :-)
