Hi Adrian,

You can test out if your HTML code is "valid" by using an HTML validator, such as is provided by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), which you can find here:


Click on the "validate by direct input" tab, paste in your HTML code, and then press Check. It will let you know exactly where the errors are (if any), and also will give you the option to "clean up" your code with something called HTML Tidy..

You still need to be online though, to use either one of these services. But using them will help you identify problems more quickly, which should definitely save on bandwidth.

Hope that helps!

I'll try it out - thanks a lot.
I was hoping though that there was a program I could use on my desktop to view the code running before I uploaded it.
I'm needing to create framed picture boxes with text in them and I think resizing them is going to take time.
