        Hi Andrea,

        Which combo list are you referring to? I can not find a combo list in the course search form. I also tried using the validator on your homepage too but it passed all xhtml strict checks. Can you attach a screenshot or give me the exact url?

        Cheers,

        Yu

        Sorry Yu, my explanation is not very clear: for combo list I'd mean the format of the home page. Combo list is the home page format dysplaying categories and course titles.

        Hi Andrea,

        The format is used on your test site http://www.mtouch.it/mdl18/, right? I ran the validator through it and the result is ok. Sorry I don't really understand what the issue is.

        Cheers,

        Yu

        Hello Yu, yes it validates using the W3C validator, but the AA and Section 508 Issue still remains. Please try the Total Validator Plugin for Firefox.

        Cheers,
