<h1 id="ebs"><font><font size="10";color=#002F5F><b>SITE 1</b></font></h1>

1. The font tag is obsolete

2. There is an unclosed FONT element

<a> <a href id"seitenanfang" style="color:darkslategrey;text-decoration: none"><p><font size="2"><center>zum Seitenanfang</center></font></p></a>
	</footer><footer></footer><h1 id="SEITE2"><font size="10" color="#002F5F"><b>SEITE2</b></font></h1><footer>

 There are 7 errors in just this small sample of code

1. href ????

2. id"seitenanfang" ????

3. font element obsolete

4. center element obsolete

5. unclosed a element

6. stray footer end tag

7. unclosed footer element

 

I give up checking the rest

Hey Ben,

thanks for reply - if i didn´t write the first font it says that the code have to start with font. Could you please correct your examples that i can give it a try - and try it on the other problems?
It should be a link to the beginning of the site.

Thanks Phil

You should take some time to understand the fundimentals of HTML before trying to use DW to create a website. For better or worse, the program assumes you unserstand it and will allow you to do pretty much anything, including writing completely invalid code that browsers won't understand. 

Here's a website with some decent tutorials, and very helpful "Try it Yourself" links that allow you to play with the attributes of tags without needing to upload files to a server... https://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

 

Fixing the line Ben highlights really does require a complete rewrite, it's only loosely based on HTML.

<h1 id="ebs"><font><font size="10";color=#002F5F><b>SITE 1</b></font></h1>

So many things incorrect, here.  As has been pointed out, font tag is obsolete.  Same for <b>.  Just say "NO".

 

Use CSS and the "ebs" ID for formatting.

<style>
#ebs{color:#002F5F; font-weight: bold;} /*font size can be set here, too */
</style>

<h1 id="ebs">SITE 1</h1>

The following is nowhere near valid:

<a> <a href id"seitenanfang" style="color:darkslategrey;text-decoration: none">

The best thing for this:

<a href="{A URL GOES HERE}" id="seitenanfang" style="color:darkslategrey;text-decoration: none">

But, again, use the ID and CSS style to format it.

 

As Jon Fritz stated, you have much to learn before getting elbow-deep in coding.  Fundamentals are paramount.

 

Best of luck in your endeavors.

 

V/r,

I guarantee the latest Dreamweaver CC did not create this code. 

Where did it come from?

Which version of Dreamweaver are you using?

 

Suggest you start over after reading chapters and doing some code exercises.

HTML tutorials - https://www.w3schools.com/html/

CSS tutorials - https://www.w3schools.com/css/
