I’m fairly inexperienced with HTML and I am using some sample code to help me write a web page
 that will take data from a CSV file and input it into a HTML table.  My page works fine with IE8,
 but it doesn’t work with Firefox.  I am working in ExpressionWeb and I am getting a red jagged
 line underneath some of the code.  When I move my cursor over the code I get a box saying
 “In XHTML 1.0 Transitional the attribute ‘datasrc’ is not permitted for the <table> tag.”  I also
 getting the error that  the ‘datafld’ is not permitted with the <span> tag.  How do I fix this so it will
 work with Firefox and other browsers?
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

You probably can't, it's an IE only feature.  http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_dont.asp
