Xara Menu Maker and Front Page
Validating Your Xara Menu in FrontPage
Are you using Xara's Menu Maker program for your site navigation? Once you have inserted the menu and have it looking and functioning the way you want, have you tried to validate your page? Download Xara Menu Maker and FrontPage in pdf format.
This is a screenshot of the original code inserted by Xara Menu Maker
When you try and validate the page, you will receive 6 error messages, all having to do with the menu. This assumes you have no other validation errors on your page.
If you change the code to read
the page then validates.
As you can see by the screenshot, both menus appear the same - the top one does not validate, the bottom one does.
This page contains the original code inserted by Xara Menu Maker and has 6 validation errors.
If you try and validate both pages, you will see the difference.
Once you have changed the code on your page so that it validates, you can no longer access the Xara Menu program from within your page. To get around this, what I have done is save the original code in a new document and save it as xara-menu.htm. I use THAT page to make any changes to the menu.
