[VE][76] Element X undefined is confused?

As you can see on the validation page, this page gets an error that says
"Element strike is undefined. Did you mean strike or strong?"
Which is completely weird. I mean look at it. I think the validator doesn't read the tag right, because this sentence doesn't make any sense.

That's right.  The "Did you mean ..." feature has been removed due to too many 
incorrect and confusing suggestions such as this in the development version 
and will be gone in version 0.8.6 of the validator.

checklink:

I used the W3C Link Checker on my new blog. It "suggested" a change  
to the "link" to my WordPress admin log-in url. It used to be just  
colorindesign.net/wp-admin. The link checker said that it was  
suggesting an url of very long string of letters, numbers, and  
characters. However, rather than just make a "suggestion" it actually  
changed the url so that now when I log into my account it displays  
this long string.

I'm very upset that the link checker made a change that I did not  
want. Now I cannot get into my WordPress admin without this long  
string. This is outrageous and I don't know how to change it back.

If this is not the correct place to get resolution to this, please  
advise who I should contact.

The link checker does not have access to make changes to your website.

The standard behaviour of WordPress admin login page is to redirect to  
include a redirect_to query string parameter.

Design tools

I need some advice/guidance about design tools.

For reference I'm a "mossback" software type. My first "hello world" 
program was saved on paper tape for a computer with drum memory - And it 
was state of the art. I have upgraded my hardware sense then, grudgingly 
using windows OS. I have been using/supporting W3 online validators for 
my web page which is an example <http://www.knob.com> of where I am on 
web design. I've been using Adobe PhotoShop to create some photo 
elements to past into my granddaughter's web page.

My problem: I'm working with a non-profit and made suggestions about how 
they could improve their web pages <http://www.atheatregroup.org/> which 
are out of date among other things. Their relationship with the 
developer is "not ideal." I think the answer is about to be 'OK, your so 
smart, fix it.'

As you can see the current pages has been developed with Adobe GoLive 
and Front Page. I feel I will need to provide an order more glitz than 
what I have been doing. On the other hand the town does not have fiber 
optic. Lots of folks use a town wide WiFi vis DSL. One of the board 
members has dial-up. I mention this as a guide for the upper limit on 
bandwidth. (When I go to Silverton for the summer, I take a VSAT.)

Suggestions? tools? books? guidance? Thanks. Lou

[VE][127] Dont understand

This script was generated using Dreamweaver 8, I have looked at all
possible solutions but can not resolve this validation error.

The Error pertains to an Image within an Url tag, this is needed to
link a post to its relevant RSS Feed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Inconsistency between HTML and RSS Validators

Hey there, I have a couple observations.

1) The HTML and CSS validators have "badge" graphics that have a look and 
feel that's completely different from the RSS graphic.  They all feature a 
checkmark, but the RSS one sitting next to the others seems out of place. 
Could whomever has the source files for these make up a matching set for 
the RSS validator?

2) Related to the above.  When viewing a valid HTML page, we are given 
instructions to hotlink to the graphic.  However, when being offered a 
graphic for the RSS feed, we are told to download it to our own server, 
and told "this is important" but not why.  To reduce the load on the wc3 
servers?  Some internal consistency of RSS feeds?  At the very least this 
is a docbug.

Consistency on both the above would be appreciated.

-Dan

You have a start tag for some element which requires an end tag, and that end tag doesn't appear in your source code (or at least, doesn't appear where it is required)

The URL of this web page is:  C\Users\pammy53\My Website\public_html\contact me.html

We can't read files directly from your hard disk.

. My website is hosted through GoDaddy.com, however, I have pulled it down for now, so that I might be able to correct this error, and others that I have found, my web address is: http://www.pammy53.com.

Since you've pulled it does, we can't read the files from there either.

(Please direct responses to the www-validator mailing list and NOT directly to me. Thanks)

HTML5 validator: attributes as SSI-tags

For the purpose of simplicity and safe uniformity I use SSI (server side includes) to place attributes within the "body"-tag. It works fine with the browsers.
The validator is meanwhile negative (4 errors and 2 warnings) to SSI-tags within the body-tag - and no doubt any other tag.

Is there any structured possibility to modify the validator????
