Try running the html through Tidy. The RISC OS port is at
http://www.archifishal.co.uk/software/riscos/tidy.shtml and a user guide
by Dave Raggett is at http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/
*tidy <filename> -mi will fix any bugs and 'pretty print' the html (take
a copy first in case you wish to compare the input and output).
I've found a very curious problem. At the bottom of a long table which
contains several forms I get a spurious "<" character. I have made a
change but I can't see a missing ">" or missing quote or anything that
would likely to cause it. When I stick in a "</table><table> at any
point between table rows to narrow down the location the spurious
character dissapears. It doesn't appear on other browsers.
I can't post a bug report because the html file is local and contains
hidden logins which I would have to alter.

Sounds like a rounding error. Please report this on the bug tracker.
This morning, we merged into NetSurf the HTML parser that Andrew Sidwell
has been working on as his Google Summer of Code project. The new parser
is significantly more robust than the old one, particularly in the face of
invalid input (which is in excess of 90% of the pages on the web). This
change resolves more than 40 bug reports, which we will be closing in
the near future.

Assuming you mean maxlength="", then that's fixed in SVN.

What kind of dialogue are we talking about here? A Wimp error box or

It may be useful to run Wimpmon and have it log the relevant Wimp message
blocks to disc in raw format.
