When I checked a webpage for HTML errors using the W3Creg; Markup Validation Service, I saw errors such as the following reported:
Line 165, Column 4: document type does not allow element "HR" here; missing one of "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag
The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in which you've placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only ones that are both allowed there and can contain the element mentioned. This might mean that you need a containing element, or possibly that you've forgotten to close a previous element.
One possible cause for this message is that you have attempted to put a block-level element (such as "<p>" or "<table>") inside an inline element (such as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").
The problem occurred because I had placed
I had something like the following:
<pre> This is some text <hr> This is some more text </pre>
I eliminated the error by placing a end
pre tag after the
first block of text and a begin
pre tag before the second
block of text.
<pre> This is some text </pre> <hr> <pre> This is some more text </pre>
