Hi all,

Have been told to get my site to comply with web standards, have checked on W3 Validator...


I have 18 errors, was going to try and fix myself but then thought of the problems I could create - as I know very little coding!

Your help as ever is much appreciated!

2)Give your images ALT values to you images

fix these 2 then we will go further, i hope this will remove around 10 errors from your document.
Bonus :-)
Littlle description of accessible images

The longdesc attribute can be used. It should link to a page giving a full description of the image

When images are used for decorative purposes, no text equivalent is needed
