HTML checker returns over 70 errors and warnings in the code

Hello. I came across this HTML code check . After running my RW site with this tool I am shocked by how many errors and warnings the tool identified. Over 70 messages… ! I am not an expert in writing code, since I am a super passionate RapidWeaver user. However, I am worried now about the defective code, especially since I didn’t wrote a line of code myself.

Does anyone has suggestions if there is anything I can do to fix some of the errors, e.g.:

  1. Error: A document must not include both a meta element with an http-equiv attribute whose value is content-type , and a meta element with a charset attribute.
  2. Error: Bad value for attribute id on element a: An ID must not be the empty string.
  3. Error: Stray end tag img.
  4. Error: Element li not allowed as child of element div in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)

…and the list goes on and on.

Not sure what those errors mean. I admire people who understand this.


Try not to worry too much about the results of these validation tools. Remember that RW is ultimately generating HTML, CSS and maybe even some JS on your behalf and there are certain compromises being made to make this possible.

I visited that site and put in the following URL:

And I got 30 transgressions listed.

If you want more detailed information about any specific ‘errors’ then we would certainly need your site URL. But… I would generally not got there when using RW which is ultimately a generator.

Just my $00.02
