    Yield icon in collapsable menu

    dogshack

      Do anyone know what these Yield icons with the eclimation point mean in my collapsable menu tabs? I've gone over the code within and all appears to be ok, everything seems to display properly. But For some reason two of these tabs have this icon.

       

      Thanks.

          Displaying properly and proper code are 2 different things.  Try running your page through the validator:

            Great tool, I used it and received several errors. However all but one were for no "alt" tag on images. Does this really matter? The one error that was not for alt tags was a height attribute. I have my height attribute within an inline style tag (eg. <table style="height:XXpx;.... as opposed to <tabel height="XXpx"....). Which format is more appropriate? The reason I am using tables and inline styles is because this is for HTML email.

             

            thanks,

              Yes - it matters for search engine purposes and for accessability purposes.  Not for layout or rendering, though.

              Neither.  Table height (even when applied by CSS is ignored), and when used in HTML it is invalid.

                Good to know, thanks for the insight. One more question about the alt tage though, when the images are merely accents and not critical imagery (e.g. something like this240_btm.gif)

                 

                Is it still necessary to incorporate the alt tag? This has no relavence to the search engine and certainly no relavence when used in an html email correct?

                  Yes, but in this case, just make it an empty attribute, e.g.,

                   

                  <img alt="" src="whatever.jpg"...

                   

                  Now your code will validate with no warnings about missing alt attributes (they are not tags).
