I've noticed that some sites have validation errors, yet IE does not show their errors to the viewer? Why is this, and how is this possible? Several Companies websites have errors but IE does not show them to me, how come? Or does the exclamation, warning symbol only show up if there is something majorly wrong with the webpage? Also what does unterminated string constant mean?

That's a good question, and I am not exactly sure why some errors are displayed and some are not. Keep in mind that some errors are worse than others and browsers are quite good with working around many of them.

You could probably find more information to your question in an Internet Explorer forum; try searching for one and ask your question there, I bet someone will be able to help you.

Kind Regards,
