HTML again

This seems to be another observation which is producing rogue text at the top of the page. The problem is in the HTML of the link -

What Dr Joe Botting had to say. />

The 3rd set of inverted commas is not needed.

Desription box anomaly.

There is no third, or I should say, I have made no syntax error, no third use of inverted commas. The anomaly appears in the source code, lines 31 - 32 as follows:

30. <meta name="description" content="Observation of Idiocerus ustulatus (Invertebrates). Over wintering specimen, tapped from Yew. My first record of this species, and probably a first for VC53.
31. What Dr Joe Botting had to say.
32. " />

To confirm my suspicion I will have to look at the source code for the ID box and location box where I have used a hperlink. Will keep you updated, unless you get there first.

Robert,
Please check the source code for the hyper link used in this comment on Idiocerus ustulatus and you will see where I am comming from, lines 27/28 Source code

Source code

Trying to copy out the source code creates a catch-22 as it is just rendered as HTML so I have taken out the < and > so that the text is left - it is the 3rd set of inverted commas in this sentence -

This is how I read it, 30.

This is how I read it,

30.

Can you give the line numbers if they are not the same as mine. Regardless I will have another to see if I have missed any thing. I will also reiterate, that I have not used three sets of inverted commas. If it is as you then it has to be a syntax error, or an anomaly of some sort, nothing to do with me, for if it was then all my hyperlinks would be dumping stuff at the top of the page. Gona have a look at the source now, anon.

Line 172. <p>Over wintering

Line 172. <p>Over wintering specimen, tapped from Yew. My first record of this species, and probably a first for VC53.<br />
Line 173. What Dr Joe Botting had to <a href="//www.flickr.com/photos/24208033@N02/2317330978/">say</a>.</p>

No double quotation marks, using the conversion codes lines 172/3 read as I typed it in, apart from the opening <p> and the closing </p> which is added automactically. It's one for the iSpot techies to sort. I will and have stopped using hyperlinking in the description box.

Sorry I forgot to use the convert codes in my previous reply, they are as in my reply above your last reply.

Goodness only knows what is

Goodness only knows what is going on here - in the meantime perhaps best to just copy and paste the link in rather than trying to construct the a href stuff?

Hyperlinks work in the

Hyperlinks work in the comment box re. your experiment. They also work in the ID box, and Location info box. It is just the description box that has the problem. Try it in the latter, with what Joe had to say; remember you can always delete it. It will, or will not, prove my point. Please let me know how you get on.

Just tried a top of page link, did not work.

As you suggested above - over to the techies - might be worth flagging it in the report a problem section, though you might have lost the will to live. I know I have.
