    Small job for good coder. Make a single page code compliant.

    Hello everybody,

    I need someone to make this site code compliant to w3c standards.

    http://www.Assteroids.com

    It's a single page site with a free flash game.

    I can usually do this stuff myself, but since there is flash involved and since I didn't build the page myself, I just don't seem to have the feel for it.

    I will pay whatever is fair, or whatever the going rate is for a job like this. I am paypal verified.

    Can someone please take a look, and do this job for me?

    Thank you.

    That's very generous, thank you, but I will pay you twice that.

    Have you looked at the code? You pretty sure you can do it?

    Btw, I have no clue why that copyright link stuff is repeated over and over.

    Please, if you can get it to pass the test, I will pay you $10.

    No, I don't want you to do it for free buddy. That's not fair.

    You are helping me, and you deserve to be paid.

    l3vi: You're going to have to replace all those <font>'s with CSS to get it to XHTML, so maybe you should accept the proposed payment
    (Wish I'd gotten here earlier, I can always use ten bucks )
    Also, setting up a paypal account is a great idea if you plan on doing many of these 'odd jobs'. I've used them for this sort of thing before, and it was much easier than sending a cheque from NYC to Australia!

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    Well I have to go to bed now.

    I will see you tomorrow.

    Thank you.

    EDIT- it looks like my host went down. My site is down, but so is my hosting provider's site. Damn. I hope you have what you need. Maybe it will come up soon.

                <br>
                Deep in space you have drifted off course, and find yourself in a 
                strange uncharted territory. Suddenly you see what looks like an asteroid 
                field quickly approaching your ship. As the giant space rocks approach, 
                you notice they have an unusual shape. You begin to look at the strange 
                objects even closer, wondering what danger they might bring. <br>
                <br>
    
                These are not regular asteroids. They have a soft appearance, and 
                a strikingly round and robust shape. There appears to be dimples and 
                thin black hair-type strands growing from the center of the enormous.... 
                rocks??<br>
                <br>
                Wait a minute.... these are not asteroids at all.... these are.... 
                <strong></strong><font color="#FFFF00"><strong>***</strong>TEROIDS</font><br>
                <br>
                Your only hope now is to destroy as many of these giant *** rocks 
                as possible, before they make it to earth and disgust all of mankind. 
                Wave after wave of the giant asses surround your ship. The sounds 
                of the farts drown out the voice screaming inside your head. The smell 
                of the potent fumes makes your stomach quiver and your knees weak.<br>
                <br>
    
                Armed only with your trusty laser and a few smart bombs, you begin 
                the assault....<br>

    Nah mate, it's all good
    Wouldn't feel right accepting payment after jumpin in in front of l3vi.
    If you want it as XHTML just let me know. That would be a fair bit more work as I'd have to copy the site locally and replace all <font> tags and align="" attributes. ( I think l3vi was most of the way through that conversion anyhoo).
    I'd also replace all <strong> tags with proper heading elements <h1-6>.

    ****ATTN: in the code above, the class .a s s has been replaced by .*** due to the forum's anti-swearing filter. Make sure to change that back

    Thank you again Andrew, that's very nice of you.

    Well, what did I do wrong? I've uploaded the new code, but I'm getting a blank white box where the game should be?

    Hmmm... interesting...
    Works for me on IE6 and Mozilla....
    Though it doesn't look quite right anymore.
    I'll attach my file, just change the extension from .txt to .html and give this one a try
    I think the swearing filter has played more havoc that I originally thought!
    *edit: If you're using dial-up and IE, the game wont start until the whole thing has loaded...I'm fixing that now and will alter the attachment when done

    ***2nd Edit* All fixed Tested in IE5, 5.5, 6 and Mozilla 1.6.

    Andrew, that did it, YES!!!

    I don't know what to say except THANK YOU.

    Thank you to Andrew, to l3vi, and to CodingForums.com

    I am so used to people only being interested in what they can get from each other, but you guys were sincerely interested in helping me, and even refused my payment. I'm afraid I might wake up soon and find this was all a dream, but I hope not. You guys are great, and I can't believe how well you have treated me, a new member who just joined the forum yesterday.

    I'm just not sure what else to say. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    Awesome
    10 minutes work is a very small price for adding another happy member to the board. Hope to see you around more often
