Hi!

Does anyone know how to add the type attribute to the javascript that is automatically generated by FrontPage for buttons that are in the navigation bar?

When I try to validate a web page with w3c, I get multiple errors regarding missing type attributes.

For example,

Line 113, column 386: required attribute "TYPE" not specified

...</a><br><script language="JavaScript"><!--

Methinks it might be looking for:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">

Hi Corey:

I need to know if there is a file that I can edit that FrontPage uses so that any javascript statements that it generates will have the "type" attribute.

These statements do not exist on my page.

They are generated I believe when they are uploaded to our website.

Any other ideas?

Unfortunately not.  You can do a find & replace in the source code.  But to my knowledge, I do not think there is anything.  I checked out: http://www.jimcoaddins.com/addins.aspx - they have a scripter 2.0 - I do not know if that would be sufficient or not.  That seems to be as close as it might get

Hi Corey:

I guess I need something that would do this automatically each time as it would be alot of maintenance to have to remember each time that a page was changed and uploaded to manually edit the generated source code.

I would think someone would have created a add-in for this situation by now.

You might see if JimCo has something in the works.  They would be probably the closest people that would have it.

Hi TruBlue,
It's the nature of the beast. FP2003 (or pretty much any other WYSIWYG editor for that mater) is not set up to be compatible with w3c's validator.

If your concern is validating, then you're going to be either creating pages by hand or modifying the generated garbage that these types of software spit out. If a page doesn't validate, it doesn't mean it won't function unless you're working with strict xhtml, in which case it won't just be that javascript tag that FP is inserting. You'll also have a myriad of other problems.

So, until someone comes up with an addin, as Corey said - you're out of luck. I can see a time in the future when your copy of FP will be so full of add-in's to get it to function properly you'll be able to uninstall the whole program and not notice any difference...

Hi Sean:

Do you know of any business web templates that use HTML, CSS and are W3C compliant?

Yes, mine - but I don't sell them :-)

Other than that, I'll have a quick look to see if anyone creates these...

OH MY GOD, there's a lot of crap out there...

I should look at those things more often.

There are a number of sites that have pre-made "basic" CSS layouts:

http://www.glish.com/css/
http://www.thenoodleincident.com/tutorials/box_lesson/boxes.html
http://www.bluerobot.com/web/layouts/

This seems to have them categorized fairly well.

Don't know if this is what you were looking for though.

BTW - no points for me, Corey answered your original Q, okay?
