Hi guys - I have a question that has come to me via my wife...she has a piece of code that doesn't seem to be executing properly and since I have no expertise with HTML I am hoping you will be willing to share some of yours. In looking at the code I am wondering if the use of forward slashes with "1/2" and "latex/Adhesives" might be the culprit. If you see any coding which might be incorrect or if the statement is not formatted correctly I would really appreciate your input

Many thanks in advance.

Rob

The code example you posted looks OK, slashes in text content is fine.

Since the attached screensshots show both rendered and not rendered HTML, my guess is that the code snippet on the page is using HTML entities instead of proper < and > characters for the HTML elements, as explained here: http://htmlhelp.com/faq/html/basics.html#show-html

If you post a link to a sample page we might take a proper look.

Some editors do that if you don't save in the correct way. Are you on Mac?

Walmart? unsure.gif

Anyway, the HTML on the linked page contains this, which is incorrect:

CODE
&lt;![CDATA{FlatOut Tire Additive by Mulit Seal Sportsman Formula

The beginning &lt; entity should probably be a < character, also this whole part:

CODE
&lt;![CDATA{

appears to be inserted by mistake and out of context.

(Also the HTML is much more bloated than the example in the first post.)

I see only one instance on that page.

<![CDATA{FlatOut Tire Additive by Mulit Seal Sportsman Formula


In the source you have this.

QUOTE
&lt;![CDATA{FlatOut Tire Additive...


1. Something has converted < to an entity.
2. There is no closing >
3. The CDTATA blurb has nothing there to do in the first place.

I don't know when the CDATA entered the mix. Can it have ended up there by accident when you copy-pasted content in? Otherwise, if it's some server side script you have a lot of searching to do, I suspect.

Does this happen to several pages or just this one? I guess several since your screen cap must come from another page...

Yeah, WM suppliers create their own info page and submit for approval.
Thanks so very much Christian, I'm sending this off to my wife to implement the corrections!!

You may still want to check what your (your wife's) editor is doing if that happens on several pages. But you don't seem to talk to me so... tongue.gif
