[solved]valadating css

Recommended Posts

is there anyway i can use css to stop the code from being seen via the valadation on w3c


i have got the following in a texarea to show users the code but when i valadate the page i get errors becouse the code is already within the page so what do i do.

is it possable to show code within a teaxtarea and stop the code getting valadated maybe a css will do it.

[code]

---start code----

1.<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"

2."http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

3.<html>

Are you typing plain html inot the textarea? If you are then this why. You should chnage the html characters into there html equivalents. EG:

< converts to & lt;
> converts to & gt;
& converts $ amp;
Note the examples above should not have a space before the & character. I had do this due to the forum pasing the html.

if you are adding the html in with php then use the htmlspecialchars function:
[code=php:0]$myhtmlvar = htmlspecialchars($myhtml);


echo '<textarea ..your html attributes here ...>' . $myhtmlvar . '</textarea>';[/code]

This will then prevent the validator from flagging errors.
