I using Contribute 3. According to some forums and articles
I've read on the Web, Contribute is supposed to respect XHTML DTD's
when present in a file, only writing valid XHTML. This isn't so in
my case. In spite of my XHTML DTD, Contribute is still saving
images without alt tags, and is puts an "align" attribute on the
src tag rather than an appropriate style whenever I specify left
alignment in the image widget.
I don't know for sure if Contribute respects the dtd as it
is, without any influence of the admin-settings. You could check
You can force the alt attribute to be present when uploading
an image (users and roles, editing, check require alt text).
You can also determine the way styles are used by adjusting
the Styels adn Fonts settings.
Hope this helps...
Thanks for the info. I did go into the settings and found the
alt tag option, which is great.
I also found the location in the settings for style
preferences. There was the option to have Contribute write inline
styles rather than HTML parameters for styling, but apparently this
was not followed by Contribute when it came to center alignment -
it still puts the align=center on the tag. I also examined all of
the other config settings in Contribute that I could find and
didn't see anything about how to do this.
I think this is a major drawback to the product - both its
apparent inability to write valid XHTML as well as Adobe's lack of
documentation on Contribute's compatability with XHTML. XHTML isn't
exactly back-alley code, so why this is info is so cloak and dagger
If you or anyone else out there has further pointers, I'm all
