Odd tbody error

Post by Lou » Sun Apr 27, 2014 10:39 am

Albert,
I'm getting an odd error
A "tbody" section is not allowed here. Because "tr" was already used, "tbody" must not be used. ...
There is no <tbody> section in the file. The error is "found" on the 2nd <tr> section in the table.
My copy finds it, 14.03 and the online version finds it. http://www.knob.com/DVD/index.html

I know I should re-write the code and not use tables for layout...

Thanks Lou. I took a quick look and it looks like a bug so I'll work on it tomorrow and get back to you. I'm sorry for the trouble.

Just noticed that all the "state" files find the same error.
Thanks.

Great! Thanks for checking and for reporting this issue. BTW, it had to do with improper handling of the implicitly ended "colgroup" element.

Goes to show the hazards of "just" continuing to uses/update 2yr old code. Don't even remember using <colgroup> and I never have liked implicit ends. (More of my table layout sin.) In fact the code is so old colgroup is in all caps.

Fixed that underlying issue, sounds like the rest is a project for a cold winter's night. Fortunately my coding got better and most of these files use CSS layout.
