Description

17 years ago
When you attempt to install the java plugin, a number of windows pop up 
including one that asks you to select a java plugin for your particular os
(see http://home.netscape.com/plugins/jvm.html?mimetype=application/x-java-vm)

This page has a number of major html errors (see the above link), including a 
misplaced doctype,<base> tag and <html> tag

This probably shouldn't cause any actual errors in use, but still: we should 
make sure our own pages are correct before criticising others!
I agree.  Here is the url for the validated page:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fhome.netscape.com%2Fplugins%2Fjvm.html%3Fmimetype%3Dapplication%2Fx-java-vm&doctype=Inline

Changing the url to point to the page in question and not validator output.

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http:%2F%2Fwww.louisbennett.com%2Fmozilla%2Fjvm.html


i wasn't sure if you wanted a version with css or just a plain-old validating
version. i'm happy to rework it with css if you feel it worth the effort.
