Default using INDENT not valid for vbadvanced

So i am using the GARS module on my site and im having problems with validating the css.

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...ne=1&verbose=1

When I create a new article, im using the indent & quote tags. Everything works fine visually however when i look at the validity of the css i notice that there is a <blockquote open tag but no ending tag. How can I go about fixing this?

Cheers

THe first one only produces errors because of the non SGML codes in the text.

However It looks like the problem is that you have in the second one - is that GARS is truncating the text, thus you have a tag that was opened, but since the close is later on down the post, it gets left out. Have you thought about using the synopsis for this purpose?

well I didnt like the way the synopsis shows, and I've now taken out the indent from the articles area.

How do I go about fixing the SGML thing?

Sounds like it is pasting in invalid characters. I usually paste into notepad before I paste into the editor for this reason
