Novice - what's gone wrong?

Threaded View
I've just taken a look at some web pages I created several years ago,
since when I've forgotten most of what little I knew about HTML
coding. Could someone kindly take a look and advise me if there's any
obvious fix I can make to pages like please?

The only one of those four pages that still looks the way it was when
I last viewed them months ago is
which is how I want the other three to be.

I'm hoping there's some relatively trivial explanation and fix,
otherwise I have a lot of re-learning to do before I can isolate it

You really should get your pages out of quirks mode. Change the
Doctype to HTML 4.01 Strict and get rid of any errors at:
The W3C validator will check your code for errors.

Terry, if you intend to ask a question in two or more newsgroups, please
crosspost between them instead of multiposting. I've just replied to
you in CIWAH, and I'm not going to post the same message a second

OK, sorry about that. In mitigation, I posted to
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html later, after getting a rather
unhelpful reply in alt.html.
