I wanted to thank everyone for their support and suggestions in my efforts
to have our web opac validate against W3C HTML4.01 and CSS validation
I have gotten them to do so for the initial search pages and have gotten as
far as I can with other pages in our web opac. I discovered much of the
dynamic links created are done via COBOL programs in the background and can
not be recoded by me.
I am now working on getting our web opac to meet 508 section 1194.22
standards. Are others doing this as well? I am using the newest version of
Firefox with its extension for web page testing.
A side note, I did get the web opac search pages to display in Mozilla,
Opera, IE, and now Firefox the way I wanted it to. There are minor
differences but not important ones. IE displays the web page to the left
while the others center it. I do not understand that difference.
The web opac is at: http://oswlib.library.oswego.edu:4600/F
