    I have been trying to validate my pages as I know it is important.

    As one of the champions of validating, I would like to ask you a question GT which may help others - hence forum and not pm.

    Every time I try to validate any page with Mal's forms on I get errors which are only to do with Mal's.

    I have a striped down page which I am testing for creating new navigation but noticed the errors were still there. The only Mal's code is a view basket link.

    The errors it finds are -

    Line 95, Column 70: cannot generate system identifier for general entity "return"
    …afe.com/cf/review.cfm?userid=C0142190&return=www.craft-kits.co.uk/stitch-m-ted…

    Line 95, Column 70: general entity "return" not defined and no default entity
    …afe.com/cf/review.cfm?userid=C0142190&return=www.craft-kits.co.uk/stitch-m-ted…

    Line 95, Column 76: reference to entity "return" for which no system identifier could be generated
    …m/cf/review.cfm?userid=C0142190&return=www.craft-kits.co.uk/stitch-m-teddy.htm…

    Line 95, Column 69: entity was defined here
    …safe.com/cf/review.cfm?userid=C0142190&return=www.craft-kits.co.uk/stitch-m-te…

    I have been all through the help files and they all say to use the & but that appears to be what is breaking the code.

    http://www.craft-kits.co.uk/zz-nav-hv-ted.htm

    I have other problems with that page and hope the errors above are causing them.

    Can you (or anyone) help please?

    And that doesn't break the cart code ??

    If that is true then why does all the examples etc still use the & ?

    If it is that simple then that is good - lot of find and replace though - not global as may have it elsewhere in the text

    I am unsure why Mal does not change the examples but it does not seem to break the code. It does seem to work and it works for any of your & so you can still use global. But... I would back up the old way first just to be on the safe side.

    Thanks Debbie Q for coming to my rescue again.

    Managed to get a test page to fully validate (after removing the Front Page borders) and now looking to learn some more css so I can do a better website :-)
