Brackets on html tags don't render...
Tue, 28 Aug 2001 16:14:46 +0100
Thanks for your quick responses. A significant part of the problem appears
to be caused by the legal tags aspect. I found one tag which was not
checked in the Prefs, Legal Tags list. Checking this reduced the problem,
but it now appears that my use of "class=" to call selectors defined in
the CSS style sheet is causing trouble. And "class=" doesn't feature in the
Legal Tags list.
I'm busy checking my html for further gremlins....
