Okay I'm working with a CMS Im not terribly familiar with but this is driving me nuts. Can anyone tell me what's happening to my markup on this page?

http://www.mikeandapril.net/index.php?id=2

It looks fine in the editor but on the page everything just looks like body text (Just in the content area).

I've run it through the validators and it looks fine. I'm sure I'm missing something stupid but I can't tell what it is.

Thanks!

My guess: its this css:http://yui.yahooapis.com/2.4.1/build/reset/reset-min.css
it resets all standard html formats like <h1> <ol> ect...

Those things just trade one problem for another.

The W3c (x)HTML validator says:

quote:
Line 86, Column 4: end tag for "ol" which is not finished.
</ol>

Track down this OL and add an LI to conform to the XHTML 1.0 DTD on OL, i.e:

code:
<!-- Ordered (numbered) list -->

<!ELEMENT ol (li)+>
<!ATTLIST ol
  %attrs;
  >

OLs have ONE or more LIs. They can NOT be empty.

Blacknight: CSS has never and never will render a markup invalid.

@poi yes but the css in use is deleting all styles ...list-stlye: none h1 :size 100% ect... so no lists or h1/2/3... will apear as wanted. only if you specify a css for it.

and if you look at the markup the uls and ols and headers ect are there ..they are joust not being formated

Style reset is VERY common. It's there to overide browsers' default style that might be/are not quite the same.

Yeah it was the reset, I've used these before but this was my first time using this one. It was resetting more completely then others I've used in the past.

AAah I read the original post quickly and the page looked fine to me. The only thing I saw was wrong was the invalid markup The layout and overall page looked fine.

Oh well.
