Try posting a snippet of the code in the lines you mentioned. Far as I know that's cool to do here.

Error says Line 2 Character 1 but gives me no "error code"

According to Learn The Net:
|Syntax is the order in which words and phrases are put together, such as a URL (web address) which consists of several phrases that are strung together to define a location or service on the Internet. A syntax error occurs when a user (or programmer) has put words in an order that a program does not understand. A syntax error while surfing the Web may be caused by a mistyped or inadvertently rearranged URL, making it incomprehensible to a web browser. |
But I don't see all that much of a problem from what you've posted.
Sticky me the URL and I'll run it thru ARV and see if I can find anything.

Since line 2 character 1 seems to be the quotation marks, I'm wondering if you accidentally have "smart" quotes there.
| 4:16 am on Jan 19, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I do not know what "smart" quotes are?
| 4:20 am on Jan 19, 2003 (gmt 0)|
He's referring to that part where you had your url instead of the one you needed to have.

One of her problems was, for example: cellpadding=10 cellspacing=0 leaving out the "" where appropriate.

Ummmmmmmmmmm...I have no idea! LOL
Sorry, I am very ignorant!

re "smart quotes"
Smart quotes are those "curly" quotes that word processors sometimes use - they curve in or curve out around the quoted words, rather than going straight up and down. Depending on the application used to write or copy/paste code, I've seen people end up with smart quotes in their document.
Smart quotes may look OK on the screen, but down at the programming level they're a totally different character entity, and not OK at all.

The error is probably caused by one of the "free" scripts.
|My website will load, but IE6 recognizes a syntax error and I can't find it |
The ONLY syntax errors that IE6 reports are scripting errors.

Ahhhhhhh, OK I understand smart quotes then. Well, you see, most of the html from the page isn't from me...it's from copy and paste. Learning as I go and what I am learning is the people who write html aren't necessarily "experts" or very meticulous.

That's my line 1 and 2.

tedster, I think that's what's happening. She has at least one external script, see message #13 above.

I just noticed this line:
That being said, it's lines 1 and 2 of THAT file where Explorer is saying you have a syntax problem, not your principle HTML file.
| 5:36 am on Jan 19, 2003 (gmt 0)|
That archive file links to an archive page. it is called /Archive.html
How is that gonna work? do I rename the page too? Everything works all fine and dandy now. Should I mess with it?
| 5:45 am on Jan 19, 2003 (gmt 0)|
That all depends. What change made the syntax error stop appearing?
| 1:43 pm on Jan 19, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Nothing made the syntax error stop, except a refresh. the page loads fine, it is just that on the toolbar in the brower it reads "Done but with errors". When I click on it that is where I see the error. When I refresh, the page loads and no error detected. I was asking that since everything seems to load fine, even with an error detected, should I bother to mess with it?

With that in mind, maybe you should remove the program that is causing the error, since it is not working anyway.
If you want, sticky mail me the URL, and latter this afternoon, I'll find out which one is at fault.

|<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> |
I think this should be:
|<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> |
This latter doesn't close the tag too early, as the former appears to, the browser is obviously having problems with the lack of proper tag syntax.
| 2:37 pm on Jan 20, 2003 (gmt 0)|
nope, that's not it. I was playing around with that earlier and accidently posted the "bad" one on the forum. The tag was removed and nothing changed.

What is this line supposed to do?
If so, what are the first two lines of archive.html?
