Why won't this work?

#1 Post by Sltruby » 2014-12-15 00:55

So I'm having a horrible time trying to figure out why these codes are only showing up as codes on my website and not what it should look like.

Here are the codes:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 4.0 transitional//en”>
<html xml:lang="en" lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<link rel=“shortcut icon” href=”http://www.nic.edu/compsci/mann/images/images/niccs.ico”>
<title>Dancing is exercise</title>
<meta http-equiv=“Content-Type”content=“text/html; charset+iso-8859-1”>
<meta content=“Staci Truby” name=“Author”>
<meta content=“CS100-02 Web Site Assignment” name=“Description”>
<meta content=“Basic Web Page” name=“abstract”>
<link href=“../Styles/myStyles.css”type=“text/css” rel=“stylesheet”>

<h1> Dancing is exercise! Get up and move!</h1>

<h2>Have you moved your body today?<small>??</small>
“ Sitting around all the time won’t make it any easier and plus don’t you want to be around for your family? The big question is, what are you doing for exercise? Are you going for runs, lifting weights in the gym, or are you doing in your kitchen to your favorite songs?
Get up now!
<i> </i>
“I’m here to get you off your butt and start moving. I have danced all my life and have also been in sports but when I got done with High School, my body decided to change a little bit. I know that we all say that we need to get more active but are we even taking the steps to do it.

<i>Exercise is your friend,
“ but some can’t even get the motivation to move at least once a day. Are you one of those people?

Do you use a WYSIWYG editor for your pages? In that case, you might get a surprise when you simply enter raw HTML code, as the editor will probably not recognize it as code but as simple text. These software programs are designed to do the HTML building themselves.

Could you take a screenshot for what you want to edit and need helps from others?
