    What does this mean?

    I'm trying to validate my page

    http://moderntimes.com/palace/b/chapter.html

    and I use #8220 and #8221 for opening and closing quotes, and when I try to validate, I get a warning thus;

    Warning: reference not terminated by refc delimite?

    Could someone tell me what that means?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Put in the character encoding then I *think* the warnings will disappear.
    Also for quotes, use "

    Hi weazel,

    I put in what I believed was the proper encoding, but I still get the warnings?

    I wonder where I can find which one to use?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I guess I'm using the wrong validator

    http://www.htmlhelp.org/tools/validator/

    I can see the one you used says the page validates. It's so very confusing.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    The W3C validator is the best around IMO - http://validator.w3.org
