Microsoft FrontPage ad touting clean code contains HTML error.
hahahahaha...talk about practice what you preach
It's not a mistake - it's a new kind of paragraph tag that MS is introducing for left-handed marketing slogans which, on the face of them, sound like apologies for their own products.
Man. If *I* can spot the error at a glance...
I'd really hate to see what the style sheets look like. My sneaking suspicion is their new clean "HTML" is akin to a child to saying their room is clean when they really just shoved everything into the closet. Moving their mess from one place to another to hide it. But you can still see the sneaker sticking out of the door...
That's pretty much the HTML I'd expect from a graphic designer. You know, the person made that ad...
Clearly, Microsoft has come up with MSML--the Microsoft Markup Language--so that only sites whose every third paragraph contains their proprietary tag will look right...and only in IE.
And as clearly demonstrated above, many knowledgeable HTML coders still have problems with SHL (simple human languages).
Does anyone have a screenshot of the FrontPage ad? I never got a chance to see it, and it looks as if it's been removed...
Tony: It's still there. Do you have some ad blocker turned on?
Roland...Hmmm...I keep getting "connection killed". I've turned off ad blocking. Perhaps it's my proxy...I'll try again tomorrow when I'm not behind a proxy. Thanks...
I don’t get what your </p>oint is.
This is even better than the one I found.
