Thanks guys. I have fixed the HTML - just careless. I will look at other ways to emphasize the team names, or just forget about it. It is reasonably clear even without emphasis, but I was just being fussy. Thanks again.

Some bad HTML here... <p>Select team for updating: <select> name="team_name"></p> should be <p>Select team for updating: </p><select> name="team_name"> unless your intention is, that <select> has no <option> elements, and you've ommitted the end tag intentionally. And as Paul said, you can't have HTML inside an option element, only #PCDATA (parsed character data). <http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#edef-OPTION> .k -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
