I've been building sites in DW MX and apparently its buggy and keeps putting in bad code, because when I run it through the validator (http://validator.w3.org) I keep getting these ugly error messages that I do not understand!

Such as: Line 503, column 172: required attribute "ALT" not specified
..." onMouseOut="P7_autoHide('LyrKey2')"></div></td>

There are 265 of these such messages! Does anyone know where to look for help on code errors such as this? And does it really help to upgrade to MX 2004? (I heard they fixed those problems in the upgrade.)

Thanks

Hya,

Open DW go to file - your web site - index then go to site - report. there are all alsorts of things you can get a report on. click run on one lets say 'Accessability' then run.
Everything to check appears on the bottom of Dreamweaver where you normally have the 'Properties Inspector'.

Thanks, Kate, I knew that was there but I didn't realize it would deal with accessibility issues.
