Rollover and Navigation Bar effects not working on Home Page

Working in CS3

I create in design view as I am not a professional web designer.  I learned Dreamweaver as best I could to create a site for my business.  Problem: The navigation bar rollover effects work on all the pages on the site except for the home page.  I cannot seem to get any rollover effects to work as well.   Have tried re-doing the nav bar and rollover links multiple times with no success. 

 

Home page: www.aiscorporate.com

 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    The Validator is seeing the final assembled code as delivered by the server to a browser.

     

    If you have Includes or other items in the non-assembled code in DW then the line numbers will be different.

     

    All line numbers match here when I View Source in IE9 - and should match Live View in DW.

     

    e.g.

     

    ERROR

     

    ErrorLine 273, Column 95: value of attribute "id" must be a single token

    … name="Log In" type="submit" class="style74" id="Log In" value="Log In" /></td>

    This attribute cannot take a space-separated list of words as a value, but only one word ("token"). This may also be caused by the use of a space for the value of an attribute which does not permit it.

     

     

    SOURCE CODE

     

    Line 273                              <td><input name="Log In" type="submit" class="style74" id="Log In" value="Log In" /></td>

     

     

     

    Remove the space from id="Log In" - it's invalid, only a single word is permitted. If you really need a space then use a hyphen or underscore instead.

    I am having trouble identifying what pages these errors are on.

     

    The validator gives you the URL where it saw the error. Is that what you mean?

     

    If you mean you're trying to clean all pages sitewide then use the sitewide Find & Replace tool in DW.

    Would this affect my original concern with the Nav bar and rollover effects not working on the home page?

    Don't know.

     

    It's always best to troubleshoot clean valid pages though.

    If you need to have your car serviced, you take it to a trained auto mechanic, right? 

    If you need an electrician or plumber you hire a certified professional, right? 

    It's no different for your business web site.   Hire an experienced professional to help you fix your site.

     

    That said, your menus are not worth saving.  When they came out, MM Rollover menus were a total train wreck.  Here's why:

    I didn't mean you should scrap everything!  Just the crappy MM Rollover Menus.

    Content wise, your site is terrific.  It's the code that's messed up.  A pro could fix it all in no time.

    The remaining 3 errors claim there is no attribute but again, there is.

     

    That's the sometimes unclear language of the validator.

     

    It's not complaining about the lack of an attribute. It's saying that the existing attribute is invalid and should removed.

     

     

    FOR EXAMPLE

     

    ErrorLine 842, Column 29: there is no attribute "height"

      <table width="970" height="627" border="0">

    You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not support that attribute for this element.

     

     

    Height has never been a valid attribute for the <table> tag and that attribute should be removed. Let the content inside the table determine the height of the table

     

    This probably won't solve the navbar issues but it does clean the code up.

    I'm still seeing the same 3 errors in the validator.

     

    Have you uploaded your amended page yet?

    You just go into Code View, remove the attributes from the 3 lines and upload.

     

    I'm seeing multiple repetition of Javascript functions in the <head> of the document. Not sure what you're doing to cause that.
