    Asked by secretsau on December 20, 2011 at 06:47 PM

    Hi, I am getting 6 errors from validating my html page. All errors are from the jotform.

    Here are the errors: Validation Output: 6 Errors and 1 Warning

     

    Line 110, Column 118: value of attribute "id" invalid: "1" cannot start a name … method="post" name="form_11893357278" id="11893357278" accept-charset="utf-8">

    It is possible that you violated the naming convention for this attribute. For example, id and name attributes must begin with a letter, not a digit.

    ErrorLine 110, Column 153: document type does not allow element "form" here; missing one of "object", "applet", "map", "iframe", "ins", "del" start-tag … method="post" name="form_11893357278" id="11893357278" accept-charset="utf-8">

    The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in which you've placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only ones that are both allowed there and can contain the element mentioned. This might mean that you need a containing element, or possibly that you've forgotten to close a previous element.

    One possible cause for this message is that you have attempted to put a block-level element (such as "<p>" or "<table>") inside an inline element (such as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").

    ErrorLine 165, Column 40: value of attribute "type" cannot be "number"; must be one of "text", "password", "checkbox", "radio", "submit", "reset", "file", "hidden", "image", "button" … <input type="number" class="form-textbox validate[required,…

    The value of the attribute is defined to be one of a list of possible values but in the document it contained something that is not allowed for that type of attribute. For instance, the “selected” attribute must be either minimized as “selected” or spelled out in full as “selected="selected"”; a value like “selected="true"” is not allowed.

    ErrorLine 173, Column 39: value of attribute "type" cannot be "email"; must be one of "text", "password", "checkbox", "radio", "submit", "reset", "file", "hidden", "image", "button" <input type="email" class="form-textbox validate[required, …

For instance, the “selected” attribute must be either minimized as “selected” or spelled out in full as “selected="selected"”; a value like “selected="true"” is not allowed.

    ErrorLine 234, Column 110: value of attribute "align" cannot be "absmiddle"; must be one of "top", "middle", "bottom", "left", "right" …oad.png" alt="Reload" align="absmiddle" style="cursor:pointer" onclick="JotFor…

    The value of the attribute is defined to be one of a list of possible values but in the document it contained something that is not allowed for that type of attribute. For instance, the “selected” attribute must be either minimized as “selected” or spelled out in full as “selected="selected"”; a value like “selected="true"” is not allowed.

    ErrorLine 235, Column 103: end tag for "input" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified … <input type="hidden" name="captcha_id" id="input_14_captcha_id" value="0">

    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".

    InfoLine 235, Column 29: start tag was here <input type="hidden" name="captcha_id" id="input_14…

     

    Help will be much appreciated solving this..
