Of course a missing or extra quotation mark can mess up a whole html page! I've done it and had to depend upon color coding in an editor to find the place where I screwed up. (That last happened in the last milleniam.)

The real killers are things like unclosed <div> or <a> tags. Fun for the whole family.

I took a look . . . you may be referring to the <ul> embedded in an un-ordered list?

I've lost track of where the About template is located, let alone how to edit the page. Thanks for the tip.

That's legit. Always looks funny at first glance.

BTW, save yourself some keystrokes. These days, <li> and <p> tags don't have to be closed at all.

You should just be able to open the template and enter your text in the text field at worst a minor edit to null out the title and/or the image fields.

Interesting about closing tags. When I was learning, we were told to close tags and, as I recall, html pages would not validate without them. Makes me wonder if standards have changed again. I'll probably keep 'em for the sake of "good form" and to be sure where such things end. No reply needed.

<li>On to Valentine TX for a night at the Dessert View RV Park.<ul>
<li>Did some amateur Astrophotography, shooting the Milky Way.</li>
</ul>
</li>

After RV Park you have an ul instead of an end li tag. Then, after ‘The Milky Way. </li>’ you have an end ul tag and end li tag

That is perfectly valid HTML.

ETA: It produces what you see in the attached screenshot.

As jGromit said, valid - thanks.

What I have is a "sub-bullet" / nested lists. One can carry them deeper, at his/her own peril in tracking the opening and closing code.

WOW: this thread has a lot of readers.

P.S. You asked why I'm using jAlbum to embedd text: because Laza said so:

http://lazaworx.com/albums/Cooking/#img=pexels-photo-76093.jpg

And, I just want to stay in jAlbum and not fiddle around going back and forth between jAlbum / Libre / PDF. It's far easier to correct a typo using jAlbum's built-in editor.

Yes, adding text es "External content" is possible too. However it's kinda' advanced, and you have to add only properly formatted (HTML5) code. I take you read the instructions page:

Laca,

Yep: I saw that page but I decided to try the .htt trick. I'll look into the external page approach. Difficultly is not much of an issue for me since I do a fair amount of coding for the web.

Is there any significant advantage of the external vs. .htt approach?

As always, thanks to the jAlbum team for being there when needed.

They are different. You can never get the contents of a HTT page displayed in the lightbox, always results in a separate HTML page.
