HTML Validation

Post by jmcmurry » Tue Oct 13, 2009 7:41 pm

Gentlemen,

Congratulations on an absolutely great and unique project. I've been fascinated with it since yesterday when I became aware of it. The word is spreading quickly throughout the various weather forums, so you can expect a lot of visitors in the near future.

On one forum, a member commented that the code that is included on our web pages will not validate, so I've looked into that and come up with an arrangement that will validate XHTML 1.0 Strict! for you to consider.

Code: Select all

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://repkasoft.com/wimo/hpPal/hpPal.swf" width="700" height="245">
    <param name="movie" value="http://repkasoft.com/wimo/hpPal/hpPal.swf" />
    <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" />
    <param name="flashvars" value="location_id=gn:5258957&unit_system=us&background=#FFFFFF" />
    This feature requires the free Adoble Flash Player which you can <a href="http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/">download here</a>.
</object>
Good luck and I look forward to the future improvements that I know that a talented group like you will come up with.

Thanks. - Jim

Hey, Jim!

I have missed this validation thing.
That is good you have reminded us about it.

I have changed HTML generation code to produce valid HTML.
Clean your browser cache to make sure you have the latest page version.

Of course if something goes wrong, don't hesitate to ask me, I will do my best to resolve the problem.

Thank you!

Pasha.

Pasha,

I found one more parameter that you may wan to add to your code:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

That will keep some drop-down menus from getting hidden behind your image.

Thanks. - Jim

Ah, I have also forgotten about this thing.
Added it.
But I would use opaque wmode instead of transparent.

Be careful it would work much slower.
When Flash runs in "transparent" or "opaque" mode, Flash is slow.
This is because Flash screen is painted by browser in these modes.

Are drop-down menus displayed ok now?
