    Here’s the site and the anything slider is on the other pages.

    The script for the drop down menus doesn’t seem to fly with the validator nor does it like the syntax for linking to specific slides in the anythingslider. Did I not properly use these plugins?

    Also, any feedback on my markup and css (or on anything) would be appreciated as well.

    Thanks, you guys have been a big help already!


    Hello gmox,

    most of the errors were because you used an ampersand in the href with the “&” symbol whereas it should be &.

    another thing, onmouseover and onmouseout are case sensitive, so change all ur OnMouseOver with onmouseover and they’ll validate just fine.

    finally, instead of


    it should be



    Thanks for the help. Everything worked except for the .prepend(‘span[class=”close”]hide’) which broke the close caption link. See my deBug page to see what happens.


    my bad, please try


    Hmmm, that’s not working either, see the deBug page where I have your new code. Thanks for trying!!!


    strange that the newest version of anythingslider fx has that span element in the script.. maybe u can send me ur project folder so i can do some debugging myself?


    You mean all the files, photos and all? Sure, how do I go about doing that?


    on second thought, u can use the CDATA section for ur script which would make the validator ignore it. i tried it, it still validates and the close caption link is intact.


    Apparently validated markup is not required as long as you have readable HTML


    Thanks for all your help 3a2roub!


    There is also a trailing comma in the AnythingSlider options (after the navigation formatter) that will cause IE to act like this rabbit.


    anytime :)
