    Getting the same white line in Safari.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Sorry by the time I read this it was 10 till 1 pacific.

    The problem with the meta tag is that you never close it.
    should be something like this (insert your own [stuff] )
    <meta [stuff] />

    Same thing goes for the img tags. Also img tags require that you specify an alt value. ie:
    <img src="killbill.jpg" alt="Penguin in Jump Suit" />

    As a note:
    I saw this:
    Code:
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;removed
    Chaining non breaking spaces like this can have a nasty side effect of not allowing the word wrapping. So instead of wrapping around it just runs over other elements. The better option would be to put spaces between the non breaking spaces. Unless of course you don't want the word to wrap.

    You could get rid of a majority of the errors just by doing a find and replace (case insenstive because you screwed up) for <br> and replace it with <br/>

    I terminate my breaks as well. I have a couple of pages on my site that have a strange white line on them when viewed with FF.

    Alround quite a nice design, might want to put some cellpadding on, for your tables. i dont like black text flush to a black border. just a thought...

    thantos would rape me if I used tables, so they are all css elements I did pad the boxes with content (the ones with a left border - didn't pad the title boxes though, should I?

    From your page:
    meta name="keywords" content="poetry, poems, Jakub Bomba, Milad Amani, short story, short stories, essays, essay, literature, books, creativity, writer, prose, author, creative writing">
    <meta name="description" content="creativeoutlet:: place where two young writers express themselves with poetry, prose, and more.">
    It should be
    meta name="keywords" content="poetry, poems, Jakub Bomba, Milad Amani, short story, short stories, essays, essay, literature, books, creativity, writer, prose, author, creative writing" />
    <meta name="description" content="creativeoutlet:: place where two young writers express themselves with poetry, prose, and more."/>

    Aren't meta tags (outside of content-type, etc) pretty useless anyhow? I mean, back in the day when search engines like metacrawler used meta tags they were useful, but I'm pretty sure that Google, Yahoo!, MSN, and most other modern search engines don't.

    edit: Oops, I guess I'm wrong. A google for "amphoric dream" brings up "amphoric dream:: place where two young writers express themselves through poetry,
    prose, random rants, and more. Amphoric Dream http://amphoricdream.com/." as one of the descriptions. I could have sworn I read somewhere that google doesn't use meta tags anymore, though.

    I'm thinking that the article said that it disregards the keywords. That makes more sense, since google as a better way of linking keywords to your site.

    IIRC google doesn't use meta tags to rank a site. But I do think they still give the meta description if there is one, otherwise they show a preview of the body.

    Interestingly enough... I don't have meta tags on my site, and searches for "whproductions" and "windy hill productions" do not bring up direct links to my personal site.

    ok, I got ird of the white line that was appearing in FF.... what caused it was a <p> tag that was not terminated in the <div> where it was declared...go figure.

    ok I have one error left: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...fffiles.com%2F

    but it has something to do with the code provided by my stat counter - not sure what to do about it...any ideas?

    Whoa...
    I hadn't looked too closely at the spelling of your website's name...
    For some reason, I thought 'amphoric' was 'amorphic'...

    Use a better counter (http://hotscripts.com has a lot). If it's one from BraveNet or something, they usually always contain an error or 500.
