Russell,

I'm not sure how it happened, but you have all your script code above the Doctype declaration.

The only thing that can ever be above the Doctype Declaration and the opening HTML tag is Server Side Language Programming such as PHP because it executes before the page loads.

In this case, these are items that need to be displayed on the page. Your script code should be placed within the HEAD tags on your page like this:


php:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
