04:52 pm - The Obituary Generator
There's another meme going around that has broken code in it. The Obituary Meme found here: http://www.quizgalaxy.com/quiz.php?id=114 Has a missing /tr tag.

This might cause friend pages to display improperly, in a very annoying manner.

Here's the code in question:

<center><table background="#FFFFFF" border="0" style="border: 1px solid black;"width="410">

<tr height="20"><td></td></tr>

<tr><td align="center"><img style="border: 3px solid black;" src="http://img.quizgalaxy.com/obituary-jakkal-2-5-10.jpg" alt="QuizGalaxy!" /></td></tr>

<tr height="20"><td></td></tr>

<tr><td align="center" style="font-size: 8pt;"><a style="color: #FF0000;" href="http://www.quizgalaxy.com/quiz.php?id=114">'What will your obituary say?'</a> at <a href="http://www.quizgalaxy.com" style="color: #FF0000;">QuizGalaxy.com</a></td></table></center>

You need to put a </tr> between the underlined </td></table> tags.

I tried to find contact info for the creator of the quiz to warn them of this, but I couldn't find anything. I guess we're stuck with this one.

05:06 am - Potential Broken Quiz
I noticed this on my LJ friends list. I haven't investigated to see if it was just a bad copy, or the output HTML is bad. Here's the quiz:

07:47 pm - Linguistic Profile Meme
hey you guys taking the Linguistic Profile Meme, check your code. There's botched HTML code in the table and it's throwing everyone's friends lists off. For some reason it's showing correctly in your journals. Why? I don't know. So either put it behind a LJcut, or apply this fix:

Look for these tags: % Midwestern</td></tr><tr></table><br /><br />

See that underlined TR tag? Get rid of it, that's what's throwing the tables off.
