I am trying to debug a classic ASP application using VS2005.

I placed the following ASP file into VS2005.

Do you know how I can resolve the following errors and warnings on 3 lines in the code section that follows?

Line 8 generates the following messages:

Mostly they are expecting you to use CSS styles in the head section like below.  You can also define the width of an element in CSS in the class that is applied to the element.  Attribute values quoted and 'alt' attribute added to <img> tags.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!-- 
body { margin: 0;}
.whitetext { color: #ffffff;} 
-->
</style>
</head>
<!-- Line 8:  -->
<body>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="bgBlueDark">
	<tr> 
		<td width="30%" align=left>
		<img height="42" src="images/hdr_y_logo.gif" width="152" alt="" /></td>
		<td width="70%" align="center" class="whitetext"><!-- <font color="white"></font> --></td>
		<td>&nbsp;</td>
	</tr>
	<tr> 
		<td width="730" colspan="2">
		<img src="images/transpix.gif" width="1" height="1" vspace="1" /></td>
		<td><img src="images/transpix.gif" width="1" height="1" vspace="1" alt="" /></td>
	</tr>
	<tr> 
		<td class="bgBlueDark" width="730" colspan="2"> 
		</td>
		<td class="bgBlueDark"> 
		</td>
	</tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>

replace leftmargin = "0" with
style="margin-left: 0; top-margin:0; margin-height:0;"

then for image:


<img height="42" src="images/hdr_y_logo.gif" width="152" alt="my image">

1) Good solution is don't use the VS2005 ... you have lot of head ache for using VS2005 for ASP.
2) Best practice is use "Response.write" and print vaiable name line by line .... you could resolve all problem in AEAP
