A line of capital A's with upside down V appears on my site, but not on my live view - what's up with that? Many thanks

Open your code in CODE view.  This is the offending code that appears on Line 48.

<h2 align="left">                                 </a>

 

For best results in modern browsers, I highly recommend that you switch to a modern code editor (DW CC 2021) and HTML 5 doctype instead of outdated XHTML Transitional. 

 

On lines 1 - 3, replace this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <htm

You're welcome. 🙂

 

Also you have several fatal errors in your code which need attention.  Browsers get confused by errors.
