Many thanks guys for all the replies!
The course I'm doing is Cert 4 Web Design, this particular topic is funnily called "Create a Simple Markup Language Document to specifications". Maybe I'm making it too hard? Is there another way in HTML whilst designing the whole webpage as a table I could set the font of the whole document, or do I need to place <font> in every <tr>? It seems to be the <fontface> that is causing the problem.
Lucy, I know about the color issue, it looks terrible, and others on the course have made the same comment, but its definitely the correct color we have been told to use.
I'm happy I'm down to just 2 errors and no warning, amazing. Now if only I can get that magic green light saying successful
