Scott, Brian (the designer behind Weather Display) has surely other things to do (such as supporting Weather Display software) than trying to help someone, anyone, designing a weather web site.

May I suggest that you have a look at Ken True's 'PHP/AJAX Website Template Sets' in order to develop a multi-page weather web site.

You could also look at 'Weather34 Home Weather Station Dashboard Template' for a more modern one-page weather web site.
Another two ready to install templates:
The Leuven-Template at https://support.leuven-template.eu/
My template has extensive documentation on how to install in the WiKi at https://leuven-template.eu/dokuwiki28/doku.php?id=en:start
Example site, use my own site: https://weer.sluispark.be/   
Also visit the incomplete user-list and check for your area or weather-program: https://support.leuven-template.eu/userlist.php?lang=en&users

Or the very impressive MeteoTemplate by Jachym. 
Check it out at http://www.meteotemplate.com/web/index.php where you find  links to an extensive WiKi, Blog  and a multi-language forum.

I did, i know how to write html, HTML 5 with it's new CSS requirements is more of a challenge..  For instance the validators say align="center" is deprecated and to use CSS.  The problem is there are at least a half a dozen alignment and float positioning  commands.  text-align does not work on images, neither does align-item, align-content or anything else I tried.  one
Code: [Select]
<div align="center"> ...</div> would align everything from the heading, images, marquee tags, etc. One thing I tried worked on one table but not others, apparently you can float left and right but not center. Now you have to write a whole bunch of code for each item, it is stupid and annoying

The validator does not like the marque tag either, but other than saying to use css, suggests transitions and something else is a very big complicated topic and there is no easy "scoll text" command . 

This really drives the validators nuts Raw weather data for first line of web for sharing raw data with others:
Code: [Select]
<div class="nd"><meta raw="" met="" data="" dry,="" 1:50="" am,09="" 22="" 18,tmp="" 23.4,hum="" 55,dew="" 13.9,wav="" 0.0,wgt="" 0.0,dir="" ese="" 102="" ,bar="" 992.8,rdy="" 5.3,rmt="" 5.3,ryr="" 112.7,rhr="" 0.0=""></div>

A <meta> tag has to go the header, not the body of a page, and it has a limited number of accepted values.
To include arbitrary data for use in other parts of the page you could use the "data" attribute, which will pass validation.
E.g. <div class="nd" data-time="1:50 am" data-temperature="23.4"></div>

The &deg; signs created by WD with the tags do not validate, the validator fails as soon as it gets to one saying they do not translate as any utf-8 unicode and can not proceed further.

you could instead set WD to not show units in the custom tags and then add your own degree symbol into your html code

the tag file said to put it at the top of the page. But even in the head it causes the jigswaw validator to fail because it has special characters in it that do not validate as utf-8 characters.

Where? I have looked all over. Way too many menus, you would think units but it is no there.
