<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default">



I am trying to validate a web page to HTML 4.01 Transitional (loose) and it
objects to several of the basic Front Page (2002) entries. One of these is
the <meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default"> with the following:
This attribute can not take a space-separated list of words as a value, but
only one word ("token"). This may also be caused by the use of a space for
the value of an attribute which does not permit it.

Presumably there is a standard 'fix' for this, but I cannot find it in the
discussion group past messages.

Can anyone advise please.

Microsoft Border is the Shared Borders. FP adds this code, and you can't
change it. (Frontpage will change it back).
It may not be "valid" (as per W3C) code but it is Frontpage code.

If you don't want shared borders, you can turn them off.



It seems I will just have to live with the site being not fully compliant.

Remove the second token from your CONTENT string. FP / EW will save it and it will not be changed when it reloads and it will WORK when executing.

change from <meta content="fldt, default" name="Microsoft Border">
change to <meta content="fldt" name="Microsoft Border">

Hope this helps.
