    Error to validate XHTML 1.0 Strict

    Hello,

    I'm a beginner in web programing ... and I'm trying to find a solution to validate my webpage in XHTML 1.0 strict
    Anyway I got stuck at the following line :

    <form name="calculator" method="post" action="calculator.php">


    XHTML 1.0 Strict doesn't accept <form name> and I don't know how to convert in something that could work.
    I know that are solution with javascript, but really I don't have a clue.

    I'm tryong to validate the code on http://validator.w3.org/check

    Here is the entire code :
    <?php

    require_once('base.php');
    require_once('functions.php');

    ?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <title>Calculator</title>
    </head>
    <body>

    <h2>Calculator</h2>

    <div>



    </div>


    <form name="calculator" method="post" action="calculator.php">
    <div>
    Field 1:
    <br />
    <input type="text" name="field1" value="<?php if(isset($_POST['field1'])) { echo $_POST['field1']; } ?>" />
    </div>

    <div>
    Field 2: <br />
    <input type="text" name="field2" value="<?php if(isset($_POST['field2'])) { echo $_POST['field2']; } ?>" />
    </div>

    <div>

    Select an arithmetic operator: <br />
    <select name="field3">
    <option value="">Choisissez l'operateur:</option>

    <?php

    echo myselect();

    ?>

    </select>
    </div>

    <div>

    </div>

    <div>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit" />

    </div>
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>



    <?php

    if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {
    echo mycalculator();
    }

    ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    From http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_form_name.asp

    Differences Between HTML and XHTML

    In XHTML, the name attribute of the <form> tag is deprecated, and will be removed. Use the id attribute instead.

    Thank you for the response! I'm a beginner with php and with xhtml 1.0 even more... can you be more specific please?

    It's saying that if you want to comply with xhtml 1.0 strict, you shouldn't use name="calculator" anymore, you should use id="calculator" instead. Just change the code for the <form> statement, and that'll probably clear it up.
