scrolling="no" does not validate. Is there a work around?

    My pages work great with the iframe we worked on together. However, it has come down to one little issue. The comment iframe will not show scroll bars if I use scrolling="no".  This is exactly what I want.

    However, scrolling="no" generates a validation error when checking the page with W3C. With 70 pages and a iframe on each that amounts to quite a few errors.  I found a little script but it doesn't do a thorough job.

    Do you have any more suggestions? I have laboured this problem for quite a while and I would really appreciate  if it could be resolved.  Is there a problem with the template?

    If I understand the issue correctly, you were referring to the email field on your form

    The email field is not being validated properly as a correct email address format like in the image below

    Kindly correct and provide more details if I am wrong in understanding the problem.

    If it is the problem, you can fix it by applying the Email validation in the Textbox property.


    Let us know if issue remains.

    The issue was about a validation error occurring with the HTML5  W3C  validator when using the outdated scrolling="no" element in the iframe.

    Yes it is the same issue but I felt the answers were not  satisfactory.  I now have concluded that the W3C consortium has not yet updated itself with the proper HTML5 element  for scroll="no".  I believe the new HTML5 element is "seamless" but browsers and W3C have not yet integrated it.  In the meantime  and until changes  are made I receive the validation error.  I'm not going to fret over this any longer. Until they do their homework and HTML5 receives its due status  I will live with the error. I  understand I won't even lose any SEO points over it so it's best left as a noncritical issue.


    Thank you.
