There's really nothing you can do about the code Rootsweb inserts for
the banner ads. You should always have a clean copy of your files on
your hard drive (local) plus a backup for safety. When you validate,
use your local copy not the Rootsweb version(it won't validate) and
never download a copy to replace a lost backup unless you really,
really have to.

Subject: [FreeHelp] RE: Something's off with my footer.....



I have an interesting tool bar on my Firefox browser. It allows me to check
any page I happen to be on. Usually I use it for my own stuff but......

HTML coding can be checked for any page at:

http://validator.w3.org/

When I used it on:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~mckemie/records/index_death.html it
showed some bad coding for the Rootsweb add-ons, as it usually does. [ They
can't code any better than most of us so don't feel to bad about your own ]
It also showed a few problems with the page. Quite possibly from past
changes to the coding as it has evolved. The results of the check can be
seen at:

http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A//freepages.genealogy.roo
tsweb.com/%7Emckemie/records/index_death.html

By superimposing the source coding over the results page It appears that
most of the coding problems stem from a lack of "<doctype....?" declaration
as specified in the results page.
