    resolved [RESOLVED] xhtml validation problem

    I get this error when trying to validate my webpage:

    document type does not allow element "input" here; missing one of "p", "h1", "h2", "h3", "h4", "h5", "h6", "div", "pre", "address", "fieldset", "ins", "del" start-tag.

    This is the block of code, the error comes back on each input field
    HTML Code:
                                                    <form method="post" action="login.php">
                                                    <input type="text" name="username" value='Username' />
                                                    <input type="password" name="password" />
                                                    <input type="submit" value="Login" />
    Do I have to wrap each input tag in <p> or one of the others listed? That seems excessive.

    This isn't just an XHTML issue, you'll find the same thing with HTML. Just stick all of the form control elements inside one xhtml:fieldset or xhtml:div or in the case of HTML, FIELDSET or DIV.
