Could someone explain what is going on and tell me how to remove the BOM so I do not get the W3C warning?
Before, there were 15 errors.Congratulations - that's an achievement!
All of the navigation buttons on the left side of the page disappeared!Ouch! Know what that's like ;) If you are using xhtml, I wonder if the docs are also quirks mode.
I've got a lot to learn about coding.As do we all - but I think you may have started at the tricky end ;)
"navigation buttons ... disappeared"For example, are they not displaying at all, not being styled correctly (which suggests a style issue), are there images that aren't showing (perhaps the path is wrong - and some browsers will "collapse" an element if the image is missing) ... etc. Can you also confirm that the buttons only appear/disappear when you insert/delete the content-type <meta> ?
The link to the style sheet that alt131 suggests to remove is,That's a stylesheet link, but I cannot confirm that is in your code as personal urls [webmasterworld.com] aren't allowed. The point is, remove all styling (including inline) and test to see if the buttons re/dis-appear.
Also what it shows in SharePoint Design mode is not at all how IE 8 renders the navigation buttons.Previews are notorious for this. Always test in an actual browser - and test across several.
