Zusammenfassung des Tabelleninhalts Der Zusammenfassung des Tabelleninhalts ist bei HTML5 nicht zulässig! Meine Webseite läuft auf HTML5. Wann behebt Ihr endlich diesen Fehler, damit ich auch noch den letzten Tipp wegbekomme? Ansonsten war mir der Qualidator eine nicht zu unterschätzende Hilfe. MfG Esoist

Ext. Link optimieren
Sälü Kusi Konnte mir nun mal die Zeit nehmen, etwas ausführlicher mit dem Qualidator und seinen Tools rumzuspielen. Vielleicht schaffe ich's später dann mal, ein detaillierteres Feedback zu geben. Vorerst ein kleines Detail zur Seite "": Der Link "" liefert keine Treffer - mit dem Suchbegriff "summary" ist der Erfog deutlich grösser. Liebe Grüsse. Simu.
