Invisible Special Character

DW CS5

 

Invisible in the sense I can't find it in DW to remove it.

 

If you look at this site:
http://www.californiayoga.com/schedule-pa.php
You will notice a "<" just under Register on Line.  This does not show in code view and even if you try View Source. It is around line 35 if you are looking at the code.

 

I found it by using FireBot in FireFox. What is there is "&lt;" surrounded by a box. I don't know where it came from but I have to get rid of it.

 

I think all I can do is try to delete the empty space. But, I would like to hear comments as to why I can't see it, or delete it, in Code Vie in DW.

 

Thanks

 

Cheers!  Phil

    Copy your code 'as is' in Dreamweaver and post it here.

    I think we may have gotten to it:

     

    Between line numbers 268 and 272, here's your code:

    <<!--tr>

       <td colspan=3>

    <p class="notice" style="padding-bottom: 10px;">

      *Patricia's class will not meet on  April 5th. </td>

    </tr>-->  

    There is an extra < in your code in line 268. This may be an issue.

     

    Try removing it and test your page and post the results here

    Also, lines 87-96 in your HTML code have a long break - this, combined with your character encoding may cause this issue as I do not see anything else disrupting your HTML structure and I don't see any other reason for &lt; to appear.

     

    Remove the extra line break and apply source formatting to lines 87-96 as this is where &lt; is appearing. See if this fixes it.

    I've been using Firebug for ages now and that is my favorite debugging tool.

     

    Glad your issue has been resolved.
