Validate your web pages
Valid HTML and CSS are important factors which will help to ensure that Userplane functions properly on your website. Perfect HTML and CSS are not required, but code that is not up-to-date or that contains numerous errors could effect Userplane functionality. Here are a few resources to help you validate and correct your HTML mark-up and CSS:
DOCTYPEs and Internet Explorer
DOCTYPEs are a way of notifying the browser that you are following a particular mark-up standard (HTML, XHTML, HTML5, etc.). It is required for valid HTML mark-up. The DOCTYPE is a single, unclosed XML node that must be the first line of code on every single page of your website.
A Suggested DOCTYPE
<!DOCTYPE html> <!-- the HTML5 DOCTYPE -->
With Internet Explorer, Microsoft introduced Quirks Mode as a way for the IE browser to cope with older websites and evolving web standards. It our recommendation that you use the HTML doctype (commonly referred to as html5), but ultimately, what is most important is that a DOCTYPE is declared. Without a DOCTYPE, Internet Explorer will render in Internet Explorer 5.5 mode, which is a browser not supported by Userplane.

Latest Version of Flash
Be sure that you have the latest version of Flash installed on your computer. Typically, your operating system or browsers will ask that you update Flash. Here are some links to assist you:
