When I try to validate this URL: http://www.cityoforangebeach.com at: http://validator.w3.org, there are errors at line 26, but when I check there is no such code at line 26.  Therefore, I used the term: Ghost Code.  Can you tell me what is going on?

When I run it, it finds an error with this line (line 26).

<div
 id
='mlk' 
class
='menu' 
style
='position:absolute;top:-10000px;left:-10000px;'
></div
><img
 height
="1" 
width
="1" 
alt
="" 
src
="http://e1.extreme-dm.com/s10.g?login=nahuibly&j=n&jv=n" 
/

><div id='mlk' class='menu' style='position:absolute;top:-10000px;left:-10000px;'></div><img height="1" width="1" alt="" src="http://e1.extreme-dm.com/s10.g?login=nahuibly&j

When you look at the source code, that code is NOT in the document.

I don't know what to tell you.  I see it there plain as day.  Line 26 just like the validator says.

Unless you're not looking at the source for the home page...???

Respectfully as you are the expert, I've attached a pdf of the source code.  There are no <pre> tags in the document.

I think the pre tag was something funky that was inserted when I tried to change my comment over to rich text.

In the pdf you uploaded, I see the offending code on line 30.  it's part of the first <div> tag of the code.

Good luck.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
