Subject Why do I get this XHTML validation errors?‏ (second attempt)
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2014 13:13:35 GMT
Hello guys!

I trying to produce a app that renders in XHTML.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">

How ever I got a form looking like this:

<s:form action="productcommentssave">
<s:textfield name="productComment.emailAddress" label="Email address" labelposition="top"
maxlength="128" size="40" />
<s:textfield name="productComment.subject" label="Subject" labelposition="top" maxlength="128"
size="40" />
<s:textarea name="productComment.text" label="Message (max 1024 chars)" cols="52" rows="5"
labelposition="top" wrap="hard"/>
<s:submit />
<s:hidden name="PRODUCTCOMMENTSACTION_FORM_TOKEN_NAME" value="%{formToken}" />
<s:hidden name="productid" value="%{}" />

This gets rendered like:
25 <form id="productcommentssave" name="productcommentssave" action="/productcommentssave.action"
26 <table class="wwFormTable">
27 <tr>
28 <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="2"><label for="productcommentssave_productComment_emailAddress"
class="label">Email address:</label></td>
29 </tr>
30 <tr>
31 <td
32><input type="text" name="productComment.emailAddress" size="40" maxlength="128" value=""
33 </tr>
36 <tr>
37 <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="2"><label for="productcommentssave_productComment_subject"
38 </tr>
39 <tr>
40 <td
41><input type="text" name="productComment.subject" size="40" maxlength="128" value=""
42 </tr>
45 <tr>
46 <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="2"><label for="productcommentssave_productComment_text"
class="label">Message (max 1024 chars):</label></td>
47 </tr>
48 <tr>
49 <td
50><textarea name="productComment.text" cols="52" rows="5" wrap="hard" id="productcommentssave_productComment_text"></textarea></td>
51 </tr>
54 <tr>
55 <td colspan="2"><div align="right"><input type="submit" id="productcommentssave_0"
56 </div></td>
60 <input type="hidden" name="PRODUCTCOMMENTSACTION_FORM_TOKEN_NAME" value="1394108222515"
61 <input type="hidden" name="productid" value="3" id="productcommentssave_productid"/>
62 </table></form>

From I validate it and get these 3
anoying errors:

Error Line 50, Column 63: there is no attribute "wrap"
…Comment.text" cols="52" rows="5" wrap="hard" id="productcommentssave_productCo…
You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using
does not support that attribute for this element. This error is often caused by incorrect
use of the "Strict" document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the
"Transitional" document type to get the "target" attribute), or by using vendor proprietary
extensions such as "marginheight" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired
effect instead).
This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you
are using, as an undefined element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see the
element-undefined error message for further information.
How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute, (Remember XHTML is all
lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, and/or use
CSS instead of this attribute. If you received this error when using the <embed> element
to incorporate flash media in a Web page, see the FAQ item on valid flash.

Error Line 60, Column 161: document type does not allow element "input" here
…1394108222515" id="productcommentssave_PRODUCTCOMMENTSACTION_FORM_TOKEN_NAME"/>
The element named above was found in a context where it is not allowed. This could mean that
you have incorrectly nested elements -- such as a "style" element in the "body" section instead
of inside "head" -- or two elements that overlap (which is not allowed).
One common cause for this error is the use of XHTML syntax in HTML documents. Due to HTML's
rules of implicitly closed elements, this error can create cascading effects. For instance,
using XHTML's "self-closing" tags for "meta" and "link" in the "head" section of a HTML document
may cause the parser to infer the end of the "head" section and the beginning of the "body"
section (where "link" and "meta" are not allowed; hence the reported error).

Error Line 61, Column 93: document type does not allow element "input" here
…t type="hidden" name="productid" value="3" id="productcommentssave_productid"/>
(same as at line 60)

Do you guys see anything that I could do to correct this? I would love to have a app with
correct xhtml.
