Help for a Newbie
 
Hey Folks,
I'm new to html, and I'm having a problem with a table. The problem is that
I am getting a "<" just above the caption. Can someone point me in the
right direction? Here's the part of the code I'm having the issue. Please
forgive the brashness of the code - I'm just getting started!!
Thanks,
Jr

<!--Nextel Cup Points Table-->
<table border=1 body bgcolor="ffff00" width="23%" height="100%"
align="right">
<caption> <font color="ff6600" size="-1"> <B> Nextel Cup Points
Standings</B></font></CAPTION>
<TR>
<TH><font color=0000cc size="-1">Driver</TH>
<TH><font color=0000cc size="-1">Points</TH>
</TR>

Hi,
I cant see where the ">" is but i'm wondering why you have "body" in the
table tag?

Excatly where do you want the "<"?

The <body> tag should not be in a table.

Put quotes on all attributes. <table border=1> should be <table
border="1">, <font color=0000cc> should be <font color="0000cc">.

Been a long time since I've used inline styles, but shouldn't that be:

<font color="#0000cc">

better yet dump the deprecated FONT element and style it!

..mycaption { font-size: %80; color: #0000cc; }

....

<caption class="mycaption">Blah blah blah</caption>

....

Of course. I was pointing out the error in the above statement.

> .mycaption { font-size: %80; color: #0000cc; }


..mycaption { font-size: 80%; color: #0000cc; }

Though after moving the percent sign, I would pick a size that was
readable. <g>

Agreed, but I was trying to match OP's settings,

> <caption> <font color="ff6600" size="-1"> <B> Nextel Cup Points


Oops I guess it should have been
..mycaption { font-size: %80; color: #ff6600; }

Although for a mere caption small text may not be an issue, not like
being confronted with a full page of minuscule text!

The -1, if contained within a block of size="4" for example, would be
about a 3, right? So 80% could be nowhere near an old-style 3.

> Oops I guess it should have been

No, the percent sign goes after the number. :-)

You could get away with that... though I would still pick at least 90%.

No, I believe size -1 is an absolute value from default not calculated
from immediate container like CSS percentages...see for yourself

<font size="-1">small outside</font>
<font size="4">Big <font size="-1">small inside</font></font>
<span style="font-size: 80%;">small by CSS</span>
